A diagnosis of cancer can be a tremendous burden to cancer patients and their families. Besides hospital bills, cancer treatment can include many expenses that insurance doesn't cover, such as medications, transportation, or child care. If lost wages compound this situation, then the diagnosis of cancer can also become a financial crisis. The list now includes drug reimbursement and assistance resources. Breast Cancer Options has compiled a resource list to help you find options.
