Putting Families First During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
September 9, 2020 by Wendy Herndon
Each year in the U.S., about 16,000 children face a cancer diagnosis.1 During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month this September, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic holding the country’s attention, this immunocompromised community deserves our support more than ever.
No parent wants to think about the possibility of his or her child getting cancer, especially considering the physical effects of the disease. However, even with health insurance, many may be unprepared for the considerable effect out-of-pocket expenses associated with treatment can have on a family’s finances. Brokers and agents are positioned to offer benefits advice to help families be better prepared if the unfortunate occur.
