A cancer diagnosis can be costly and require long-term care. As part of the treatment, you may have to make regular trips to your treatment center. Your expenses may include, among others, payments for the transportation and the care you receive. If you are participating in a clinical trial, you may have additional cost-related factors to consider.

Take chemotherapy, for example. If based on your cancer type your medical team recommends chemotherapy, you may get chemo once a day, once a week or even once a month. The treatment may be given a few days in a row or in one day. It all depends on the drugs you're getting and the type of cancer you have. The time span of treatment varies from person to person and it depends on the type of cancer you have, the treatment goals and how your body works with the drugs.

A treatment center facility that is located far from your home may mean transportation assistance and extra expenses. Examples of transportation and travel expenses include airplane fares, bus or train fares, gas, tolls, parking or taxis. Finances are often a source of stress and anxiety in these situations. Sometimes, costs can even keep people from completing treatment, increasing health risks. If possible, it is encouraged to rely on family or friends to transport you to a treatment center facility. Patients' morale generally improves when family members or supportive friends play an active role in their treatment. However, no matter the situation, transportation should never be a roadblock to getting cancer treatment. And you've got enough burdens already without worrying about getting to a treatment facility.

The first step to access the best option for you is to talk to your care team. If you cannot get to a treatment facility on your own and you need a ride, talk to the social workers that may be available at your treatment center. They may be available to provide transportation from certain locations or help you identify other transportation resources.
