Cancer Survivors On Line

Financial Coping


Catastrophic diseases like cancer can deplete your life savings very quickly.

Most cancer treatments; surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and procedures like bone marrow transplants are extremely expensive.

Some treatments may not be available locally and you may have to travel and stay in a metropolitan area which will add to your expenses.

Struggling with cancer is hard enough without having to delay or forego medical treatment because you cannot afford it.

Learn about your medical insurance, know what is covered and what is not. Talk with your doctor and nurses about your financial situation. Ask to see a social worker that specializes in financial assistance.

Many pharmaceutical companies provide drugs to patients with financial need.

There are also some wonderful people in communities around the world who will help.

Read through these materials regarding financial assistance.
Also, read about insurance and disability.
