There are many worries after a cancer diagnosis.
Financial hardship shouldn’t be one of them.

“I thought, I’ve done the hard yards, I can’t let money troubles break me.” – Vicki

Last year was tough for many, but even more so for people like Vicki, who heard the words “you have cancer”.

While she was dealing with her diagnosis during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, she noticed her bills started piling up. She was struggling after spending all her savings on specialist appointments and didn’t know how to make basic ends meet, but thankfully support was just a phone call away.

The impact of cancer is hard enough without the extra pressure of financial hardship, and no one should have to worry about whether they can afford life-saving cancer treatment.
