Information on Program offered by ACS


Recommended Posts


I found a number on the American Cancer Society's website that has a program for "Taking Care of Money Matters" during cancer. Apparently they have a program or workshop that is available and you have to call to find out if it is available near you.

It addresses:

The need for family openness in discussing and finding solutions to financial and investment matters

The importance of practicing basic financial planning; for example, all adults should have a will and other essential paperwork in place, make a budget, and monitor cash flow

Warning signs that finances are out of control

Advice on handling work-related issues, such as disclosing medical information to an employer and the legal rights of cancer patients and their survivors.

Inclunding Information From:

Licensed Certified Financial Planners

Hospital Billing Representatives


Insurance Agents/Specialists

Bankers and Bank Trust/Loan Officers

Social Security/Medicare/Medicaid Representatives

Certified Public Accountants

Comprehensive Health Insurance Plan Representatives

Tax Consultants/Specialists

I'm not sure how good the program is as I haven't called yet....but I thought I would post the Number... it is 1-800-ACS-2345
