Joint Effort to Expand Health Care Access by Breaking Through Barriers

NEWPORT NEWS, Va., May 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Cancer Society and Patient Advocate Foundation today announced a strategic collaboration that will give millions of cancer patients and their families quick access to timely information and specialized patient assistance resources. This collaboration will help to improve the lives of cancer patients nationwide who are facing access to health care issues.

With support from the American Cancer Society, Patient Advocate Foundation will extend its ability to provide case management services, providing desperately needed assistance to cancer patients who have lost, or are in danger of losing a job or health care coverage, or who face other challenges that impact their access to care.

"A cancer diagnosis can be the most overwhelming experience a person may ever face in his or her lifetime. Coupled with financial instability, the journey can become significantly more challenging to manage," said Terry Music, interim chief mission officer, American Cancer Society. "Supporting Patient Advocate Foundation's programs and services allows us to connect patients to case management resources that can help to vastly improve the patient's quality of life by increasing access to healthcare, continuation of employment, and preservation of financial stability."

Through the American Cancer Society's National Cancer Information Center, clear, reliable cancer information is available to help patients understand their disease and make informed decisions about their health. Trained cancer information specialists are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1-800-ACS-2345 to answer questions about cancer, link callers with resources in their communities, and provide information on local events. For patients in need of services provided by Patient Advocate Foundation, a seamless referral process will be established to
