The Caporal Assistance Network is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to assisting young adults living with cancer in the Central Texas area. Recognizing the fact that the average young adult carries a heavy load of financial debt, CAN strives to relieve a portion of the financial and emotional burden that a cancer diagnosis presents.
CAN provides financial assistance to young adults who are pursuing fertility preservation services due to the possibility of becoming infertile as a result of cancer treatments such as surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Our goal is to effectively reduce the out–of–pocket expenses young adults may incur resulting from these procedures. Learn more about the Mariposa Program.
CAN connects cancer patients and survivors, as well as caregivers, family members and friends, to vital community resources to assist in the treatment and recovery process. Local organizations and programs include peer support groups, nutrition workshops, exercise programs, and insurance/financial consultations.
