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

The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) offers a variety of support services to lymphoma patients, survivors, and caregivers. These free services include the LRF Helpline, which provides information about lymphoma, treatment options, and financial assistance resources, as well the Lymphoma Support Network for peer support and encouragement.

Individuals touched by lymphoma can also learn about novel and emerging therapies through LRF’s Clinical Trials Information Service.
