Winning the battle against
cancer can sometimes depend on the availability of good diagnostic tools, medicines, and
All of these things are costly and not always
available to all who need them.
For people without insurance or adequate
coverage, and for those who are suffering the added anguish of financial catastrophe due
to cancer's costs, there is help.
Many pharmaceutical companies around the world
have outreach programs whereby they can provide certain drugs, or funding for them.
Several organizations exist which also provide
assistance in medical and transportation costs associated with cancer treatments.
It is always a good idea to talk with your
medical team about a possible referral to a therapist or social worker who specializes in
treating cancer patients and their finances. These specialists are a wonderful resource
and will be able to help you cut through the red tape.
Do not hesitate to ask for this
You deserve it!
