Family Reach is an official charity partner of the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon
We help patients and their families combat Cancer-Related Financial Toxicity (CRFT). Basically, CRFT refers to the overwhelming costs that accompany a cancer diagnosis. Yes, there’s the growing stack of medical bills. But more than that, patients and caregivers often have to stop working during treatment.
This loss of income, coupled with increasing out-of-pocket expenses, makes it difficult for families to pay their everyday bills (think: mortgage, gas for the car, groceries, Wi-Fi, and so on). And that’s where Family Reach comes in!
