Please join the Fibrolamellar Cancer Foundation for an on-line discussion on “Cancer Care Resources from A to Z: Financial, Legal, Medical, and Insurance Resources for Patients.”
A cancer diagnosis comes with many challenges, including financial ones. There may be steps to take to protect your finances and your family after a cancer diagnosis, including choosing and using health insurance effectively, rights and appeals, navigating patients’ rights at work and school, managing medical bills, disability, and caregiver protections.
The discussion will be led by Sandra Vassos from the Fibrolamellar Cancer Foundation and our featured speaker, cancer-rights attorney Monica Bryant from Triage Cancer. Join us to learn more!
