Even though there are many different kinds of assistance available for cancer patients, cancer patients are rarely able to seek them out. Information about resources is scattered across the Internet. It is exhausting and time-consuming for cancer patients in active treatment to find relevant resources. In addition, each organization has its own application and application process.
One organization, Cancer One Source , is working towards the one stop, one step model for cancer resources. Their goal is to enable patients to apply to multiple assistance programs with just ONE application! Currently, two programs are offered: Genetic Testing and Post-Mastectomy Sites and Services.
