Through the launch of new funds, we have strengthened our presence in the oncology copayment assistance space. We are honored to say that we now have more than 20 oncology funds with active patient grants.
While it is always disheartening and emotionally trying to receive a diagnosis of a life-changing disease, a cancer diagnosis is particularly devastating. Not only does the disease itself take a physical toll, nausea and vomiting from chemotherapy or breakthrough cancer pain that happens even though a person is taking pain medicine regularly can be debilitating as well. That’s why we are particularly honored to be able to provide assistance through our Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea or Vomiting Fund and our Breakthrough Cancer Pain Fund. We will continue to look for ways to support the cancer patient community through new funds for the treatment and management of the disease.
