Dealing with cancer is hard enough. Your finances shouldn’t cause you extra stress. The Samfund and Triage Cancer teamed up to create this Toolkit to provide you with information and tools to help make sound financial decisions before, during, and after cancer treatment– not just in the wake of the financial wreckage cancer often causes. 

The Samfund is the first and largest nonprofit organization in the country to help young adults recover from the devastating financial impact of cancer treatment. Through direct financial assistance and free online support and education, we help young adults move forward with their lives after cancer.

Triage Cancer is a national, nonprofit organization providing education on the practical and legal issues individuals coping with cancer face, through a national Speakers Bureau, educational events, and online tools.  Triage Cancer also offers an educational blog.
