Breast cancer affects you emotionally and physically, and it may also impact you financially. For instance, you may have unexpected expenses and need to take time off work. There are resources available that may help you cope with your financial challenges. Your social worker or patient navigator will be able to give you the resources available to help with your finances. They may also be able to answer questions about drug coverage benefits, disability benefits, and social and community support options.


Speak to your social worker, patient navigator or other members of your health care team for more information.
