“Making legal services available to people with cancer is an essential part of holistic patient treatment. Many nonmedical issues can arise after a cancer diagnosis that hinder medical treatment – whether it’s access to healthcare, living conditions, or employment and financial issues. Often these issues are something a doctor just cannot help their patient with, and many times can be far too overwhelming for a doctor to address. Making legal services available to health care providers gives us an invaluable resource with which to help our patients. Having attorneys there to help resolve nonmedical patient problems can result in better medical outcomes for people with cancer and certainly help to improve their overall well-being during a very difficult time.”
