Komen Treatment Access Program

Komen Oregon & SW Washington and 211info are committed to increasing access to breast cancer services to women in need of assistance. This program reduces transportation barriers for rural women in treatment for breast cancer. Funding is made possible for this program by Susan G. Komen, the largest source of non-profit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.


Women and men in treatment for breast cancer may receive services if they meet all three criteria:

  1. They have limited incomes (less that 250% of the Federal Poverty level).
  2. They live or receive treatment in Oregon or SW Washington (Clark, Cowlitz, Skamania and Klickitat counties).
  3. They must travel more than 25 miles (one way) to treatment.


Eligible women and men may receive the following services if funds are available:

  1. Gas cards for travel to treatment and support services.
  2. The gas, hotel and food assistance is provided in the form of a gift card that is sent directly to the patient’s home address.
  3. Funds for hotel and food expenses if they are staying one or more nights in a hotel.
