Other ideas to explore

Ask your doctor or a member of your cancer team for a referral to a social worker at your clinic or hospital. Sometimes social workers know of local resources, and they often know a lot about requirements for help from your state.

You might be able to find other public and private resources on your own, including:

  • Federal programs for military personnel or veterans
  • State programs for seniors, disabled, or low income people
  • County, city, or community programs
  • Churches and religious or charity groups
  • Patient advocacy groups

You might want to look online, in your local phone book, or talk to others about resources in your area. Ask these organizations about drug assistance programs. Even if they have none themselves, they may be able to help you find an agency that does.
