Costs of Cancer
May 4 2018
While the emotional and physical impacts of Breast Cancer are well known, the Financial Impacts are rarely
discussed. Cancer survivors and their families are more than twice as likely to go into bankruptcy than people without the disease.
Even with insurance, women with Breast Cancer, and their families, face mounting costs and are faced with wrenching decisions about
how to pay for their care- or even whether to take the treatment due to the costs.
This project was started as my master's thesis and continued after graduation.
