October is breast cancer awareness month, and for patients fighting the disease there are often financial challenges too, according to Molly MacDonald, founder of the The Pink Fund. The Pink Fund provides financial assistance to help patients meet basic needs. MacDonald says patients should speak with a hospital financial counselor to understand treatment costs. She also suggests building a cancer budget, saying there's more costs associated with the disease beyond medical issues, such as buying new clothes and hiring household help if needed. She says it's important to be your own advocate, or to find someone to do that for you, in order to manage medical bills.
