EYS helps breast cancer patients in 13 counties in New York state. Many people diagnosed with breast cancer are unable to work during their illness or treatment, adding a huge financial toll to an already difficult struggle. Assistance from EYS eases the financial difficulties of unpaid bills and helps patients focus on their health and families.
