The cost of being diagnosed with cancer is unbelievable. There are numerous studies identifying the “cost” of cancer as it relates to medical bills and research. Unfortunately, there are few organizations that look at the “patient’s cost” of cancer aside from the medical bills. Many cancer patients find themselves drowning in debt from utility bills, rent or mortgage payments, and personal loans to just live through the treatment process. Often times, patients seek financial assistance from non-profit cancer organizations and discover that they do not assist with utility bills, groceries, transportation, and/or day-to-day needs. They may also hear, they do not have the right type of cancer to receive the assistance offered.
