Cancer is not only a major disease, but along with it comes a financial burden, pressures, which not only depress the patient but are a major concern for their family members. Not all are able to afford the costs incurred due to the disease and its treatment.
Majority of the people diagnosed with cancer face this trauma ‘How to pay for the treatment’, who will take care? How will the family survive and eat?
Such questions usually haunt all those diagnosed of cancer and more than them their family members, who actually not only have to support the patient emotionally but also financially. But who will support these family members?
Although government provides these patient financial aid, majority of them are not aware whether they are eligible to attain the aid or not.
But thankfully these cancer society and charities have been well established. They definitely play a major role in helping such people. They not only provide these patients with financial services but also have nurses who provide these patients with proper care even at home.
People are free to discuss their problems with charities that offer financial advice service. Still many people fail to discuss their problems. Macmillan Cancer Support has collaborated with The Breast Cancer Haven to offer free support for anyone with cancer.
