Cancer isn’t stopping just because of the coronavirus.

Overflowing hospitals. Closed clinics. Delayed treatment. Cancelled surgeries. The challenges for cancer patients to get the lifesaving care they need has never been greater.

By itself, cancer is hard enough. That’s why we’re asking your members of Congress to include some critical provisions in the next coronavirus relief bill that is being negotiated in the House and Senate.

Will you join us in asking Congress to support people impacted by cancer at this critical time? 

Cancer patients and survivors need your members of Congress to support the inclusion of these provisions in the upcoming package:

  • An opportunity for cancer patients, survivors and others who have lost their job or need health insurance to have a special opportunity to enroll in an Affordable Care Act health insurance plan.  Without this, they may not have access to affordable health care during this critical time.
  • Make it more affordable for cancer patients to take their cancer medication at home in a pill form rather than require them to go to a health facility for an infusion if their doctor approves the change.
  • Ensure lower-income cancer patients and survivors who can't afford private health insurance are able to enroll in their state’s Medicaid program and that it’s funded to meet the rising demand for care and treatment caused by this pandemic.

These are extraordinary times. And the struggle for cancer patients to maintain their lifesaving treatment has never been greater.

Please sign on today to help cancer patients get the support they need.
