A cancer diagnosis can affect so many parts of our lives, including finances. We all know that even without cancer finances can cause stress in our lives.

Many caregivers feel overwhelmed by how expensive cancer treatment can be. You are not alone.

Some families go from a two-income household to a one-income household while others may lose their main source of income entirely. Even if your insurance covers all of the treatment costs there are still travel costs and other expenses to consider.

Many people have unplanned expenses related to their care. Additionally, cancer can bring up a number of legal issues for a caregiver and their loved one to consider.

Finance, insurance and legal matters can be a major source of stress for you and your loved one.
