“My mother is 78 and has breast cancer. She has Medicare, and is on a fixed income, but we didn’t know how she was going to pay for all the medications she needs to take. The Cancer Resource Coach provided me with information about patient assistance programs through the drug companies that make the medications my mom is taking. I didn’t know anything like that existed! We also explored other options such as prescription discount cards and state-run programs that applied to her situation too. My mother was really stubborn about not having to go into debt for any of this, and also didn’t want to have a “balance” with any doctor or health care provider. What a relief to be able to find not one, but several programs that were appropriate for her. She is less anxious now, and is able to concentrate on getting better. As her caregiver, it is gratifying to know that there are people out there who care about her wellbeing, and want to support her during this time of need.”
Cancer treatment is more than just medical treatment. Cancer patients and their families are emotionally and mentally challenged in the face of overwhelming decisions, but the medical system is not able to support them in this way. Cancer Care Connection is here to assist patients and their families beyond medical treatment so that everyone who is affected by cancer has what they need to obtain their best possible outcome.
