According to Cancer.org, “Colorectal cancer (commonly known as colon cancer) is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States among men and women and is expected to cause about 49,700 deaths during 2015.” The treatments one must endure while facing this disease can toll on their body physically, mentally and emotionally.
In addition, colon cancer can be expensive and many people 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.
