The “Treatment Transport” program was created to break down the barriers that patients face in gaining access to their cancer treatments and support services.
A recent study by the National Cancer Institute revealed that costs for cancer care are expected to soar to $158 billion by the year 2020 – a staggering 27 percent increase. Experts attribute this to numerous causes, including increased cancer survival, a growing number of older Americans, and treatment advances. However, it’s not just the financial burdens of battling cancer that takes a toll on families, but the psychological and social burdens as well.
Boston Cancer Support is working to ensure that patients, who may otherwise miss their treatments and support services, have safe and reliable transportation.
