Cancer can be expensive to treat and manage. In a literature review conducted by the Canadian Cancer Society in 2010, findings showed that most of the costs incurred by patients and their families were traced back to travelling expenses, out-of-pocket costs, and cancer drugs and prescription medicines. This section is meant to provide financial aid and resources specific to cancer patients and their families residing in Quebec.
