USA Today, October 13, 2008

One in eight people with advanced cancer turned down recommended care because of the cost, according to a new analysis from Thomson Reuters. Among patients with incomes under $40,000, one in four in advanced stages of the disease refused treatment. At CancerCare, a national group that provides social work and small grants for transportation expenses, requests for financial help also increased 30% this summer compared with last, said CancerCare representatives.
