Cancer is a devastating disease that affects millions of people worldwide. While there have been great advances in cancer treatment in recent years, many patients still face significant financial challenges in accessing the medications they need.
The cost of cancer medications can be staggering, especially for new and innovative treatments. Many patients have to pay high out-of-pocket costs, even with health insurance. For some patients, the cost of their medications is simply too high to bear, and they have to make difficult choices about their treatment.
Here are a few examples of how your donation helped support cancer patients this year:
Many cancer patients have to travel long distances to obtain prescribed medications. Your donation helped three patients from Tajikistan access medications unavailable domestically
Cancer patients in Ukraine face constant bombardments, destruction of hospitals and mobilization of medical personnel to fight in the war with Russia. Your donation helped to provide financial assistance to patients in Ukraine so that they can access medications and focus on their recovery.
We were able to spend over $5,000 to date to help cancer patients with medications, but we would love to do more! Please consider signing up for monthly donations to allow us to support even more cancer patients in these difficult times.
