Managing Financial Aspects
of Cancer Care

A major part of dealing with cancer is tackling the financial aspects of care. In some cases, a cancer diagnosis can change a family’s financial situation. People with cancer and their families need to rethink their financial planning in order to accommodate costs of treatment, tests and medication. Caregivers face the additional task of managing the medical records, bills and balances. At this already stressful time, it is important to anticipate the kinds of expenses you will be faced with and find effective strategies to plan and cope.
