The truth about breast cancer is that the financial burdens can be just as devastating as the physical ones.
This is why the Breast Cancer Support Fund (BCSF) exists – to bridge the gap between the financial reality faced by breast cancer patients and the limited financial assistance available.
Cancer-related out-of-pocket expenses, such as medication not covered for treatment, over-the-counter medications, transportation costs, hospital parking, prosthetics, wigs, food, restorative therapies and medical devices add to the burden for patients who are sick, vulnerable and fighting for their lives.
