Why Giving Matters

In addition to their diagnosis, women facing breast cancer face serious financial battles. The past few years have brought significant changes to breast cancer research, diagnosis, and treatment; however, these medical advances have come at a price.  The financial and emotional burden a patient carries throughout the treatment process can be detrimental to their recovery.  Even for patients with health insurance, raising medical costs and increasing deductibles and co-insurance rates have created financial hardship.  The average length of treatment for cancer is 7-8 months.  The average patient with insurance pays out-of-pocket medical expenses of about $1,500/month.  Studies have shown that most American families do not have adequate financial reserves to weather a major health crisis.
