After receiving life-changing news, your body is now subjected to grueling treatment which leaves you the most tired and most sick you have ever felt. Unable to work, you are given a maximum of 15 weeks sickness benefits (the average chemotherapy patient requires at least 16 weeks) to recover. You quickly realize that many medications you need are not covered by insurance. On top of that, your bills don’t stop because you’re sick. Now, your energy is focused on making sure you can afford to eat that week, pay for your housing, or get that medication you need. This story is told too often.
