LECTURE DESCRIPTION

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.
