Financial Assistants Program 


Recently diagnosed, you are probably experiencing an array of emotions as you try and figure out your next steps.  Being diagnosed by your medical staff with breast cancer is one of the worse shocks you can image.   For many, managing the cost of cancer treatment is difficult which can cause distress and worry which makes it challenging to follow the doctors' prescribed treatment course.  According to the ASOW, Association of Oncology Social Work recent survey, almost one half (46%) of patients who have experience a financial burden from their cancer have cut back on necessary living expenses to pay for cancer treatment.  The number of cancer patients dealing with financial concerns about their care, especially out-of-pocket cost, is on the rise and Fighting 4 the Tatas understands this all too well.

IBC Awareness and Research  


The world needs to know about Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) and learning the basics of IBC could save your life!  


1st Problem

Not many know that there are different types of breast cancers out there, and one of them is IBC.


2nd Problem

The medical community are often mis-diagnosing IBC as a breast infection and once they figure its not an infection the patient has lost ample amount of time to start a treatment plan, therefore IBC is found in the late stages which drives up the mortality rates.  


We want to help spread the word that this particular breast cancer has no lump and is not detected by mammograms  IBC symptoms can develop very suddenly, is aggressive and deadly.  Research is also just as important as awareness to help find a cure.
