Advocacy

New Day partners with organizations from the public and private sectors that recognize the connection between cancer treatment outcomes and financial health. We also seek to expand stakeholder investment to truly solve the problem of CRFT at its roots. These alliances and our affiliation with Boston-based Family Reach, a national organization that provides support to families impacted by cancer, enable us to provide information and resources proven to help families who experience financial hardship as a result of cancer treatment.

We are proud to align our mission with the following organizations:

Michigan Coalition for Affordable Prescriptions

New Day is proud to support the Michigan Coalition for Affordable Prescriptions (MCAP), a group of advocates dedicated to ensuring Michigan’s public policies keep our prescriptions accessible and affordable for all patients.

To learn more about the work New Day and like-minded groups are doing to help families in the state of Michigan, please visit the MCAP website.

 

Michigan Cancer Consortium

New Day is a member of the Michigan Cancer Consortium, a statewide, inclusive, broad-based partnership of public and private organizations that provides a forum for collaboration to reduce the human and economic burden of cancer among the citizens of Michigan.

Imagine Session—Coming Soon!

Research proves that financial stability during cancer treatment has long term positive effects and saves lives. New Day intends to host an “Imagine Session,” which will bring participants from public and private sectors together to discuss how we can take common-sense steps to fight the toxic financial effects of cancer treatment.

New Day endeavors to establish an “ecosystem” of these public sector and corporate partners such as banks, utility companies, employment agencies, transportation and fuel companies, grocery stores, and other key sectors that are in a position to provide financial relief to families living with the financial effects of cancer treatment.

Our goal in creating this ecosystem is to:

  • Engage corporate sectors and bring awareness to the problem of financial toxicity
  • Outline sensible solutions that can be employed to alleviate the financial strain associated with cancer treatment
  • Develop creative “cause marketing” campaigns that help solve the problem while demonstrating to the public that the organization is a partner in the solution; and
  • Keep the topic in the public policy sphere
