The organiser says, “Nearly 17 million people living in the US have a cancer diagnosis — and that figure is expected to increase to 22.2 million by 2030.

“Today, many of those patients are struggling. Nearly half of those in the US facing cancer exhaust their life savings within two years of diagnosis. Too often, patients with exorbitant out-of-pocket costs simply abandon treatment.”

The workshop is free and registration is ongoing. Interested applicants can apply here.
