Review for Lazarex Cancer Foundation, Danville, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am currently employed at MD Anderson and have witnessed first-hand the amazing work Lazarex has done for countless number of our patients. Being on a clinical trial has been for many a last alternative in their cancer journey. Participating in a clinical trial requires extensive visits to MDA. This of course poses a barrier, as the patient now has to worry about the out of pocket expenses that will be incurred. It is not unusual for patients to be required to travel weekly when treatment is initiated. As one can imagine, this can be very emotionally overwhelming and taxing both physically and financially for our patients. Lazarex has been a saving grace for so many as it allows them to participate in a trial without having to worry about the financial burden. For many, it is contingent on whether or not they choose to move forward. I have witnessed the relief it brings to so many patients as it allows them to focus on their treatment and quality of life rather than how they will afford to pay for their out of pocket expenses. I have developed a wonderful and positive working relationship with the staff from Lazarex and can attest to how amazing, friendly, and helpful they each are. This is one organization that turns around and really uses their monetary donations for a good cause. They REALLY care, thereby giving our patients hope and a chance to be with their loved ones a little longer. I am so grateful for this organization and look forward to a continuous working relationship with them. You all are truly special!!
