During times of financial instability and economic distress, the financial burden of medical costs can weigh heavily on cancer patients. In response to these financial challenges, the Cancer Financial Assistance Coalition recently launched www.cancerfac.org to provide guidance on financial assistance and local resources for patients, caregivers, and health care professionals.

On the site, patients can search by ZIP code, cancer type, and the type of care they’re looking for—housing, health insurance, drug assistance, transportation, scholarships—and instantly receive customized information.

Formed in 2007, the CFAC is made up of 12 national organizations, including the American Cancer Society and CancerCare.
