It is through the beneficence of the Jewish community and RCCS that cancer-stricken patients can maintain their health insurance, thereby enabling them to maintain their coverage and freeing them from the financial burdens and subsequent emotional stress that can ensue.

Those who have benefited from RCCS’s assistance shared the sentiments of one fortunate recipient of the society’s aid, who said, “Saying thank you to RCCS is not enough. It was a miracle that RCCS stepped in and took care of what had to be taken care of.”
