Cost of Cancer - Kaiser Foundation Report

The Kaiser Family Foundation, a health policy organization, and American Cancer Society recently released a policy review of the financial barriers cancer patients face in the current system of health care and insurance. Below is a link to the mini-documentary on the topic as well as links to their policy report. We need to get this information to our policymakers in Washington DC to ensure health care reform comes soon and is of adequate quality to ensure cancer survivors no longer fall through the cracks.
