Aligning Physical Health with Financial Health
You can help make cancer treatment affordable for everyone who needs it in Southwest Florida. With nearly one in two people directly affected by cancer, it’s not surprising many of them will also battle financial hardships as they fight for their lives. The cost of treatment can be overwhelming, but together we can help. The all-encompassing Compassionate Care Fund assists under-insured and uninsured cancer patients so they can focus on getting better.
Why Give? Karen Dias Shares Her Story
Karen Dias thought she had a simple ovarian cyst. Within six weeks of having it removed, doctors found a cancerous tumor. After a hysterectomy and a round of chemotherapy, doctors found another aggressive tumor weighing 7 pounds. She had three more rounds of chemotherapy and multiple surgeries to remove tumors throughout her body, including five baseball-size tumors in her liver.
“If the Cancer Center didn’t exist, I don’t know how I would have received treatment,” she said. “I spent six days a week at this facility, which is only 30 minutes from my house. We didn’t have to travel or move our family to a place out of town to receive the best treatment. The staff truly cares about the patients.”
