Danville-Pittsylvania Cancer Association, 2020 CFDRR Competitive Grant Recipient
According to DPC: The CFDRR grant helped provide 1,128 prescriptions to assist approximately 320 cancer patients in our community needing prescription assistance. The cost of cancer-related prescriptions creates financial concerns for our clients, which can inhibit their cancer treatment. Our assistance allowed clients to have access to medications prescribed to improve their level of pain, nausea, and other discomforts, as well as provide some with a chemotherapy pill. Additionally, it helped to relieve much of the stress and worry about financial concerns regarding the high cost of their medicines, and ultimately improved their quality of life.
