Does anyone know of any organizations that could help me financially while going through treatments? I am a single mom.
Before you enter the survivors section, in the first page click on cancer.org (lowest square) and then click on Support Programs. In Quick Finder, click on Finding and Paying for Treatment. Click on Managing Insurance Issues and then click on Health Insurance and Financial Assistance for Cancer Patient.
I know there used to be links for financial assistance for cancer patients but I lost the information.
Hope you find something.
