The Lung Cancer Initiative Access to Care gas card program provides assistance to lung cancer patients while seeking treatment including clinical trials. The goal of the program is to lessen the financial burden for patients to receive appropriate lung cancer treatment by providing gas cards. To be eligible for a gas card, the applicant must be a resident of North Carolina and currently undergoing treatment for lung cancer. An application must be completed and signed by both the applicant and the healthcare facility.
As a lung cancer survivor, I felt this need to find a tangible way to support patients on a very local level. It's been gratifying to see how successful this gas card program has been at getting people to treatment."
