Everyone’s life has been touched by major illness
There are millions of survivors among us. Our family members and friends have suffered from cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc. The intrusion of these diseases into our lives leaves a trail of incomprehension.
These diseases have a way of reaching out and touching just about everyone; some harder than others. Depending on your age, you may have been personally touched already, and survived. You may have friends or relatives that are currently battling these common killers.
A toxic side of cancer treatment
Avoiding financial disaster can add stress to patient’s battle against the disease. Not only are cancer patients 2½ times as likely to declare bankruptcy as healthy people, but those patients who go bankrupt are 80 percent more likely to die from the disease than other cancer patients, according to studies from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle.
Our mission is to provide financial assistance for patients of the doctors at the Toledo Clinic who are currently undergoing treatment and are in financial need. If you are a patient of a Toledo Clinic Physician and are having trouble with expenses over and above your medical treatment, we can help. The Toledo Clinic Foundation can help with rent, transportation, utility bills, child care,etc.
