According to the American Lung Association Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in both men and women. It causes more deaths than colorectal, breast and prostate cancers combined. In 2015 alone, it is estimated that 221,200 new cases of lung cancer will be diagnosed.
Cancer can be expensive and many lung cancer patients find themselves in need of financial assistance at some point in their journey. Even when covered by health insurance, cancer patients face mounting out-of-pocket expenses that force some to alter their lifestyles such as cutting back on food and other living necessities. Some cancer patients avoid filling prescriptions, or even skip doctor appointments due to lack of financial assistance.
Are you or someone you love suffering with a lung cancer diagnosis. Start an online fundraiser to raise money for research so others don’t ever have to suffer. Or show your love and support by raising funds to help ease the financial burden and give that person the time they need to devote to their treatment instead of worrying about the financial burden that fighting disease like cancer can cause.
