Who is at Risk for CRFT?

In a word, everyone. It doesn’t matter if you have health insurance or a hefty savings account. You will be financially affected by cancer.

Cancer patients are 2.65 times more likely to go bankrupt. Patients who declare bankruptcy have a 79% greater risk of dying from their disease.

In fact, cancer patients have demonstrated more anxiety over the cost of treatment than they do about dying from their disease.

This is unacceptable.


How Family Reach Combats CRFT

Understanding the financial impact of CRFT is critical for giving patients a fair shot at getting to the other side of cancer.

To this end, we have developed the Family Reach Financial Treatment Program, a comprehensive, solutions-oriented approach to CRFT that zeroes in on areas crucial for financial health – education and awarenessfinancial planning, and financial assistance. It’s designed to reach families at the start of cancer treatment and lead to systemic change in the way CRFT is addressed today.
