If you’ve ever been through cancer treatment — or are close to someone who has — you have likely witnessed not just the physical and emotional strain of the disease, but the financial fallout as well.
Thank God there are lots of organizations out there who have made it their mission to help cancer patients navigate these rocky waters. Good people. Really good. I know because I’ve talked with many of them first hand. They are top-notch, compassionate, and willing to help in any way that they can. And they’ve offered me help. Real help.
My blog post for The Pink Fund this week is dedicated to those organizations and people who are devoted to reaching across that great divide, grabbing hold of a cancer patient’s hand and helping to guide him or her to the other side of impending financial crisis.
If you or someone you know is battling cancer and needs financial assistance, be sure to pass my blog post from The Pink Fund on. You’ll give them two gifts — the chance for help when they need it most and the opportunity and ability to focus on Job #1: Getting Better.
