Greene County Women's League
POB 341
Round Top, NY 12473
The Greene County Women's League is a non-for-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to assist people in Greene County who have had the misfortune being diagnosed with cancer. Although we pay medical bills solely for Greene County residents, we do pay providers anywhere in the United States that are chosen by the patients for treatment. Each patient who applies may be eligible to receive monetary assistance to pay for pharmacy, prosthetics, co pays, doctors, and/or hospital bills. The organization was founded over 40 years ago by a group of twelve women with a mission to assist cancer patients with medical bills not covered by their insurance. Since the beginning of this organization, we have continued without interruption. We do not receive state or federal funding and none of our members receive compensation for their hard work and dedication. The Greene County Women's League is committed to cancer patients in Greene County and this commitment will be passed on from generation to generation until cancer is wiped out.
