Assistance in Healthcare

Founded in 2012, Southeastern Assistance in Healthcare (SAIH) is a nonprofit with the mission of providing financial support to patients undergoing active cancer treatment. The funds provided are for non-medical expenses such as mortgage, rent, groceries, utilities, child care, or other basic needs that may be neglected during a patient’s treatment.

The goal is to keep families focused on fighting cancer and to help reduce the worry and stress cancer can cause by lessening the burden of non-medical needs.

Southeastern Assistance in Healthcare serves any patient in active cancer treatment at facilities within the Atlanta Metro area.

Your gift of any amount will make a difference in the lives of a family who may be struggling to make ends meet because of a cancer-related illness. You can also help cancer patients and their families on a recurring basis by making a monthly contribution. For more information, please visit
