What We Do

Who We Are The NCLSN promotes increased availability of free legal services programs so that people affected by cancer may focus on medical care and their quality of life. Why Legal Services? Cancer survivors face devastating legal and economic consequences. Legal services programs assist with insurance disputes, public benefits, housing, employment issues, future care and custody planning, immigration, and advance directives.
