CPAN Advocacy Chat: The Financial Crisis of Cancer

Advocacy Groups | <b>COA Patient Advocacy Network</b>

A cancer diagnosis is life-changing. One of the biggest changes is adjusting to the financial burden.

A cancer diagnosis is life-changing. In addition to the emotional toll, patients rearrange schedules to accommodate treatment, adjust to new physical challenges, and reach out to friends and family for help. One of the biggest changes, though, is adjusting to the financial burden. On February 2, 2022, at 12 p.m. ET, Rose Gerber and Carla Tardif discussed about one organization helping those who need financial assistance with cancer.

Family Reach CEO Carla Tardif wants to ensure no family goes without due to cancer. Whether it’s food, housing, or transportation, no patient should have to choose between paying for treatment or these necessities. Family Reach provides emergency relief, financial coaching, and other assistance to patients whose income has changed due to a cancer diagnosis. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with cancer. Stream it on YouTube here.
