Free alternative medical treatment to low income women with cancer
Offer relief from the side effects of cancer and its treatments pain, nausea, fatigue, loss of appetite and enhance the immune systems and the quality of life of the clients.
Complementary alternative medical (CAM) treatments are rarely covered under health care plans. Without the services provided by the CMCC, low-income women with cancer would not have access to these beneficial treatments
The Charlotte Maxwell Clinic is committed to supporting and empowering low-income women with cancer by providing free access to compassionate, integrative care. At our clinic, all low-income women with cancer in the Bay Area have access to a safe space and nurturing environment. We are an inclusive, volunteer-supported, integrative, public, free health clinic with a focus on education. Inclusive: Open to all low-income women with cancer, including women of color, lesbians, transgendered individuals, monolingual women, and differently-abled women. Volunteer-supported: Comprised of a large and compassionate volunteer base of integrative care practitioners and other dedicated community members. Integrative care model: A model of care for the whole person, inclusive of mind, body, and spirit. We provide many holistic healing services, including acupuncture, massage therapy, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and guided imagery. We also partner and collaborate with our clients’ health service providers and other community service organizations to ensure the fullest care possible. Educational focus: We strive to provide education for our volunteers, clients, and staff, and outreach to the local health care community on the unique needs of women with cancer, the importance of social services, the effects of race and class in healthcare, and how providing holistic care can help improve health outcomes and decrease health care disparities.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Charlotte Maxwell Complementary Clinic website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.

For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
