Pocket Guide to Patient Advocacy In Cancer

Having cancer or any serious life-changing disease is overwhelming. At a time when you’re anxious and afraid, you are faced with navigating the complicated health care system to get the treatment you need. You and your family also face practical challenges, including paying for and getting to treatment. “Getting told you have cancer is like getting hit by a bus,” says cancer survivor Lou Lanza. It’s almost essential to have some that can help you get back on your feet.

You don’t have to—and you shouldn’t try to—do this all on your own. A patient advocate can help make your cancer journey easier.
