According to Stanfordhealthcare.org, “Uterine cancer is the most common kind of gynecologic cancer in the United States, with an estimated 52,630 women diagnosed in 2014. The most common type of uterus cancer is endometrial cancer, which is highly curable if found early.” The treatments one must endure while facing this disease can toll on their body physically, mentally and emotionally.
In addition, uterine 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.
