Help Us To Help You During Your Treatment
At MSK, we care about your overall health, not just your cancer diagnosis. Cancer treatment affects you physically, mentally, and emotionally. It also can affect you financially. Costs related to treatment can make it harder to pay for cancer treatment, transportation, or housing.
It is important to talk with your care team about any problems with money and paying your bills. They can connect you to resources at MSK that can help.
