This holiday season, TMS was excited to announce its partnership with Family Reach—a national non-profit dedicated to alleviating the financial burden to cancer patients—helping to offset mortgage payments to those in need.
In November, TMS CAREspondent Charity program made a commitment to donate $250 to Family Reach for every lender that partnered with us before the end of the year.
“This program has been a huge success,” said TMS President Ali Vafai. “It was a great way for us to partner with our clients during the holidays and help raise money together for a cause that is important to our category.”
In total, TMS and its partners raised more than $6,000 for Family Reach.
“We’re thankful to our clients and the partnership of Family Reach to give every family a fair shot at getting to the other side of cancer,” said Vafai.
According to the nonprofit, one in three families are unable to afford their basic needs because of a pediatric cancer diagnosis, and 73% of adult patients will experience some form of cancer-related financial burden. These families often find themselves struggling with their daily living expenses, including groceries, utilities, and their mortgage payments—sometimes having to choose between paying their bills or paying for treatment.
This is where Family Reach steps in to help, partnering with oncology social workers at more than 300 institutions nationwide who use the nonprofit’s programs to meet the financial needs of their patients.
This holiday, TMS is appreciative for the overwhelming support from our team members and partners to help make a difference in the lives of families in need.
