Patient Advocate Foundation

I'd like to thank Kelsey for letting us all know about this very important organization: Patient Advocate Foundation.

What is one of the most difficult areas to navigate in our health care system is trying to find the money to pay for the exorbitant cost of medications. Essentially, if one meets the criteria, PAF "...provides direct payment for co-pays, co-insurance and deductibles for patients who need financial assistance."

As I write this, the ovarian cancer co-pay relief fund is currently closed BUT - and I can not stress this enough - funds re-open often so it is important to check back frequently. Additionally, one can sign up to receive alerts when the fund re-opens. The funds for this rely on donors, so if you have the means to support this worthwhile organization, I would urge you to do so. Given that many of our dear women can not work while receiving treatment, this truly is a life saver for many.

Currently, the Cancer Genetic and Genomic Testing  and funds for Cervical Cancer are open. To sign up for alerts, please follow this link.
