Working Together to Support Patient Communities
Patients often need support that goes beyond financial assistance. At HealthWell, we value our relationships with patient advocacy groups and national health care organizations. We work with these groups to support patient communities. We refer patients to one another, and, together, we raise awareness for various diseases.
“The HealthWell Foundation’s new AML Fund is a much-needed resource and will be an important addition to the tools ACCC offers through its Financial Advocacy Network to lessen the economic burden of cancer for patients and their families.”
— Dr. Mark Soberman, President – Association of Community Cancer Centers
“The Macular Degeneration Association (MDA) is delighted the HealthWell fund will be able to help those in need with out-of-pocket costs for treatment. Because of this fund, more people living with macular degeneration will be able to access the treatment they need that previously may have been cost prohibitive.”
— Lawrence Hoffheimer, Chairman of the Board – Macular Degeneration Association
“The financial burden that breast cancer patients face can be overwhelming and too often forces them to make choices between paying for medicine or food. The HealthWell Foundation’s grants will go a long way in alleviating some of the financial burden and allow people living with breast cancer to focus on taking care of themselves.”
— Jean Sachs, Chief Executive Officer – Living Beyond Breast Cancer
