A diagnosis of childhood, adolescent or young adult cancer can leave families reeling financially, as well as emotionally. On top of dealing with the initial shock of the diagnosis and the fear of what’s ahead, one parent may need to take a step back from work at short notice, leaving the family on a reduced income at a time when you’re facing the additional costs associated with treatment, such as travel, accommodation, food and childcare, among others.
It can be difficult to navigate your way through the assistance that is available to families during treatment or to figure out what financial products (such as insurance) you may have yourself that could help.
