Cancer Care Types Wichita Cancer Foundation 1

Costs of Cancer Care

A cancer diagnosis can not only have a catastrophic effect emotionally and physically but also financially because of the vast medical care needed and the cost of such care. Many also lose their jobs because of their inability to work when they are sick. Without insurance, the cost of their care directly brings extraordinary debt or financial ruin forcing patients to have to choose between their families and fighting to save their lives. The goal of the Wichita Cancer Foundation is to keep patients from having to make that choice.

Your Support And Donations Wichita Cancer Foundation 1

Your Support

The majority of donations received by the Wichita Cancer Foundation are directly allocated to local cancer patients to help pay their insurance premiums. With the average health insurance premium costing $625 per month, it can take as little as $3,750 for six months of medical care. This shows that all donations can make a real difference in patients’ lives.
