ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( -

Individuals diagnosed with breast cancer who need help paying their insurance premiums can now contact Gateway to Hope for help through the organization’s newly launched Insurance Premium Program (IPP).

Executive director, Mary Lee Salzer, announced on Tuesday that the new program is funded entirely through corporate and private sector donations.

Donations will assist individuals undergoing breast cancer treatment and reconstruction with the payment of health insurance premiums.

The program is open to individuals who live in Missouri and Illinois who are struggling with resources to help cover their treatment and who meet the clinical and financial eligibility requirements.  

Patients accepted into the program are free to choose their insurance plan and their health care provider.

Gateway to Hope is encouraging individuals to call its Breast Cancer Lifeline, 314-569-1113, to learn more about the program.
