Living with cancer can be financially challenging. When you are newly diagnosed, it is important to determine your eligibility to all financial programs immediately. Delays can have an impact on your finances because there may be waiting periods for some programs. It will be helpful to contact a social worker nearby to help you with this. If you would like to see a social worker, ask your primary oncologist or the AYA program for a referral.
