Cancer treatments can be expensive and worrying about finances can get in the way of regaining your health. A program of the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance, Carol’s Wish can help and is available to all women diagnosed with gynecologic cancers, regardless of income, insurance coverage, or citizenship status.
Our expert financial advocates are here to help you navigate through the financial aspect of your medical treatment. One of our advocates will meet with you in person or over the phone to review your current medical coverage and clinical treatment plan and, if needed, work together to create a new, personalized strategy to minimize your financial burden going forward.
A program of the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance, Carol’s Wish was created in honor of Carol Dauer, who fought a three-year battle with ovarian cancer before passing away in 2017. Concerned about the extraordinary cost of cancer treatments that can be a heavy burden even for well-insured patients, it was her wish that nobody should receive substandard medical care for financial reasons.
