Celebrating A Year of Impact, Progress, and Community
Confetti will soon be flying and toasts will be made as we prepare to ring in the new year. But it wouldn’t be the Family Reach way if we didn’t reflect back on 2019 and share our gratitude with everyone who made these successes possible.
The topic of financial toxicity and cancer patients is finally in the spotlight – but it’s up to all of us to enlighten those discussions and keep pushing solutions forward, just as the Family Reach community has been doing for more than 22 years.
It’s through our partnerships, collaborative advancements, impactful events, and ongoing awareness efforts that we will continue to shed light on the financial barriers of cancer that families across the nation face daily. Thank you for believing in our mission and paving the way for progress.
Take a look at some of our favorite, most poignant moments from 2019 below and know you played a part in making change happen. Cheers to an incredible year!
