Transportation Challenges During Breast Cancer Treatment

Transportation Survey Results
Thank you to those of you who participated in our latest survey.
Nearly half of patients (48%) with breast cancer surveyed by The Pink Fund said the cost of transportation was a barrier to receiving treatment, with more than 60% missing an appointment or being late to one because of transportation issues.
Moreover, the survey found that 67% of respondents are in need of transportation assistance to and/or from treatment and that 80% would need a ride service to treatment three times or more each month.
