As a LIVESTRONG Navigator, I try to identify the needs of anyone affected by cancer and provide them with the best resources available. A client can contact us in person, online or over the phone for free counseling and assistance in a variety of areas, including emotional support, fertility preservation, health and wellness programs, financial counseling, clinical trial matching and health literacy.
Though all of these areas are very important to address, financial and insurance issues seem to be the most common. When someone is struggling with a cancer diagnosis or caring for a loved one, they shouldn’t have to worry about financial burdens. That is where we come in.
