Helping Cancer Patients Walk Taller

How We Help

Assistance in Health Care, Inc. was established in 1993 by a group of volunteers at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® in Tulsa, Oklahoma solely for the purpose of raising funds to support cancer patients and their families. The support now extends to Tulsa and the surrounding areas. We receive referrals from area hospitals, health care facilities and community agencies. Assistance in Health Care relies solely on the support of individual donors. Donations and gifts are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.


Assistance in Health Care, Inc. is a not-for-profit volunteer organization which assists cancer patients in financial distress while they are undergoing treatment. We provide financial support to patients undergoing active treatment in the Tulsa area for non-medical expenses.
