Forbes Magazine recently published an article on a recent study showing that 25% of cancer survivors are struggling financially. The healthcare industry in the United States is financially draining for anyone with cancer, of that there is no doubt. But as Forbes points out, it's also important to take a look at the job stress and loss of wages that impact so many people.
Caregivers may have to take time off, reduce hours, or can even lose a job due to the time required as a cancer caregiver. The person going through treatment will likely have to take time off or at least reduce hours. This loss of income would place a strain on many households.
