A recent survey by the CancerCare Patient Access and Engagement Report of 3,000 cancer patients demonstrated the financial burden of those receiving treatment.
- 38% of respondents postponed or did not fill a prescription
- 31% cut their pills in half
- 21% missed a utility bill
- 17% missed a rent or mortgage payment
The Susan G. Komen Treatment Assistance Program provides financial assistance, education and support services to low-income, underinsured or uninsured women undergoing treatment for breast cancer across the country so they can complete the full course of treatment. To date, the program has helped nearly 30,000 patients since its inception in 2003.
So we're bringing all the pink power and raising money through 10/31 to give these women hope. You can also donate directly to our fundraising page here.
