The Cost of Cancer

The cost of cancer directly impacts patients and their families. I look closely at why it costs so much to go through cancer and how it can affect the patient and their family. Having cancer is hard enough on a patient, let alone having to worry about the financial issues they will struggle with. I suggest interventions to reduce the harm that the high cost of cancer inflicts on patients and families.
