Review for The Step Sisters, Ashburn, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love this organization. On top of a cancer diagnosis comes all these financial concerns for deductibles and medicine co-payments. The medical world has diagnosed financial issues that cause stress"financial toxicity." No one should have to deal with the stress of financial struggles on top of a cancer diagnosis. Step Sisters help patients by relieving their financial stressors. They are not as strict with requirements to get financial assistance for patients, and they allow nurse navigators to screen and decide who is appropriate for assistance or who needs a lift me up with a gift card, house cleaning, or food delivery. They do not discriminate based on citizenship status or past year's income for financial aid. They also get us in contact with other organizations such as Thrive Causemetics to give patients extra things like makeup to brighten their day. They are the best organizations I have been privileged to work with to get patient's financial concerns met.
