Financial toxicity is the harmful personal financial burden faced by patients receiving cancer treatment. It encompasses both an objective financial burden (increased monthly expenses coupled with loss of income) and subjective financial distress (how the financial crunch affects well-being). Financial toxicity is a real problem that results in poor quality of life and reduced chance of overall survival.
This financial distress is an unnecessary side-effect of cancer that New Day can help manage. With so much uncertainty swirling around the healthcare industry, New Day is a vital resource for families to bridge the financial gap and bring profound hope in the fight against cancer.
We believe families come first. Their needs and survival are our priority. No family should fight cancer alone or make unthinkable choices between medical treatment and providing basic necessities. Financial toxicity reaches beyond the high cost of cancer care, directly impacting the life expectancy of cancer patients.
