About On The Front Line Society
On The Front Line Society (breast cancer fund) provides short term financial assistance to Nova Scotian breast cancer patients, both women and men, who are in financial need. On The Front Line Society does not fund research.
Often, some of the most stressful realities of a cancer diagnosis are of a financial nature. Sometimes just coming up with bus fare and baby-sitting fees to get to chemo treatments can be difficult. A little bit of help can make a big difference.
