Cancer patients and their doctors should be fighting cancer, not insurance companies.

Too many patients are suffering undue health risks, anxiety, and financial hardship as they confront restrictive, complex, and unfair insurance review and appeal processes that drastically delay or make it impossible to receive treatments their doctors prescribe.

"Proton beam radiation will target my tumor and not surrounding tissue, and to me is the clear choice. Unfortunately, my insurance company doesn’t agree with me or my team of medical experts and has denied coverage."

Patients and family members are the most powerful advocates for fair and timely proton therapy access. You know best what needless delays and denials of treatment can mean for patients who are fighting to survive cancer.
