Rays of Relief


How Rays of Relief impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision

Rays of Relief helps alleviate the financial burden associated with daily radiation therapy, regardless of tumor type ortreating facility. Rays of Relief helps promote a better healing process and wellness journey because their clients receive their prescribed radiation treatment without additional worry and stress associated with medical costs. With nearly 50-75% of patients diagnosed with cancer needing radiation, the financial assistance that Rays of Relief provides – up to $1,000 - is critical because most facilities -approximately 75% - require payment in advance of receiving radiation therapy. This can lead patients to postpone or delay this critical step in their treatment. They assist both children and adults undergoing current treatment and seek to give patients access to medical care associated with a cancer diagnosis.
