According to Cancer.org, “Ovarian cancer accounts for about 3% of cancers among women, but it causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.” The treatments one must endure while facing this disease can toll on their body physically, mentally and emotionally.
In addition, ovarian 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.
