About BJCF

Cancer treatment has advanced significantly in recent years. Drug therapy now has the potential to extend life beyond previous expectations. Unfortunately, these drugs are very expensive and can often create financial hardship for the patient. The Bettie Jane Cancer Foundation exists to help pay for the cost of these treatments. Whether through assistance with insurance costs or direct offset of medication costs, the Bettie Jane Cancer Foundation stands beside those in need. If you or a family member have such a need and reside in Frederick County, Washington County and Allegany County Maryland, please contact us for help.
