Provide Cancer Patients with Legal Resources
Nearly 1.7 million people nationwide will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Just $1 can help them get the legal resources they need.


Cancer Legal Resource Center (CLRC) is a program of the Disability Rights Legal Center (DRLC), a 501C-3 non-profit, public interest advocacy organization that champions the civil rights of people with disabilities as well as those affected by cancer and other serious illness.  DRLC’s Cancer Legal Resource Center provides information through its national telephone assistance line, outreach programs and community activities to educate and to support cancer patients, their families, healthcare professionals and advocates on matters like maintaining employment through treatment, accessing healthcare and government benefits, taking medical leave and estate planning.  For a person with a cancer diagnosis, these issues often result in worry and confusion, which can be overwhelming.  When left unaddressed, patients may survive treatment to find their homes, jobs or insurance coverage gone.  When information is readily and easily accessible, quality outcomes for patient survivorship improve as stress and anxiety decrease.
