The Cancer Patient Special Needs Fund assists individual patients with limited financial resources who need help in covering emergent expenses such as prescriptions or co-pays for medications, medical supplies (i.e. wigs, mastectomy prosthesis), nutrition, essential living expenses, and transportation.

The Sussex County Cancer Survivors’ Fund was founded in October 2008. It is a non-profit, fund-raising organization with proceeds benefiting the Tunnell Cancer Center’s Patient Special Needs Fund. Organizers include: Mr. Kubala and his wife Bevann Kubala, Frank Shade, Kenny Hopkins, and Betty Streett.
