Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online, interactive lecture. Cancer has a new side effect. Just like hair loss, pain and the distress that come with the diagnosis, and treatment, more patients now have to deal with financial toxicity. So what is financial toxicity? This is the expenses, anxiety and uncertainty when confronting large and unpredictable costs of cancer treatment. Please join us so we can talk about how financial toxicity affects your quality of life and what you can do about it. Community Lunch and Learn lectures are geared toward cancer patients, survivors, family, friends, and care givers/supports but anyone interested in learning more about cancer is welcome to join us. Every lecture has a question and answer section at the end so feel free to ask the presenter for clarification or more information. While these lectures are viewable online, we recommend watching them at one of our Community Lunch and Learn sites. Please contact us for more information and for assistance locating a site near you.
