This large directory offered exclusively from Cancer Horizons has resources covering everything from financial help for breast cancer patients to help for cancer patients without insurance and even extending to financial help for cancer patient’s families and caregivers. The directory covers help for pediatric cancer patients, help with prescription medications and co-pays, legal assistance where needed, young adult cancer patient financial help, and even life insurance funding or life settlement resources.
If you have a life insurance policy and can’t keep up with the premiums? Did you know there numerous options including getting a life settlement from a reputable carrier that will buy the policy from you and give you a lump sum of cash to get caught up on bills and actually live your life! If you are losing your policy from non-payment, we urge you to seek alternatives before the policy is terminated and you walk away with nothing.
If you are losing your home because of cancer – We ask that you explore the offerings found in the Mortgage, Rent & Utility section to see if there is a group that can advise or even assists with emergency cash based on your circumstances. If you also are at risk of utilities being turned off please check out the resources available to see if you possibly qualify.
