A diagnosis of cancer can be emotionally and financially challenging and affect the basic functioning of your everyday life. It has the potential to affect relationships with family, friends and co-workers, and influence a person’s self-image.
CancerCare is a non-profit organization that aids people affected by cancer with challenges they may encounter. CancerCare offers modest financial assistance for cancer-related costs to eligible patients as well as educational materials such as booklets and workshops to help them and their loved ones better understand the diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
CancerCare also provides online support groups as well as phone counseling to help patients and loved ones cope with a cancer diagnosis. All CancerCare services are provided by cancer professionals.
