Cancer Legal Resource Center
The Cancer Legal Resource Center is a terrific resource that you should remember. A cancer diagnosis and treatment may bring a host of legal questions and concerns related to employment, health care, finances, and personal/family planning. Many people already have an attorney who has helped them with other things, and others are able to identify and pay for a lawyer when they need to do so. However, all too many people, especially during the crisis of serious illness and the parallel drain on finances, can't manage the expense. This is where the Cancer Legal Resource Center can be so very helpful.
Here is a blurb to explain their mission and then a link:
About the CLRC
The Cancer Legal Resource Center (CLRC) is a national, joint program of the Disability Rights Legal Center and Loyola Law School Los Angeles. The CLRC provides free and confidential information and resources on cancer-related legal issues to cancer survivors, caregivers, healthcare professionals, employers, and others coping with cancer.
A cancer diagnosis can carry with it a variety of legal issues, including insurance coverage, employment discrimination, access to health care, and estate planning. These legal issues can cause people unnecessary worry, confusion, and stress, and can be overwhelming. When these legal issues are not addressed, people may find that although they have gotten through treatment, they have lost their homes, jobs, or insurance.
