“Cancer legal advocacy programs are an essential resource for patient navigators in eliminating barriers to timely screening and diagnosis of cancer, cancer treatment, and supportive care. This is particularly true for poor and uninsured people. Patient navigators rely on organizations, such as those members of the NCLSN, to assist patients with legal issues affecting their ability to receive and benefit from treatment.”

Harold P. Freeman, MD, Founder & President/CEO of the Harold P. Freeman Patient Navigation Institute
