Patient Advocate Foundation’s Colorectal CareLine is designed to provide assistance to patients who have been diagnosed with colorectal cancer and are seeking education and access to care.
The Covid virus created an unprecedented situation which has made it very hard to clearly understand what my furloughed husband’s right to FMLA protection is. The uncertainty about which action to take was creating great added stress to his recent cancer diagnosis. The patient advocate agent I spoke with took the time to understand my husband’s personal situation and clearly cared … she got back to me within hours with a very clear-cut answer explaining what his rights are … knowing how to proceed has lifted the stress from our shoulders and allowed us to concentrate on his treatment and getting well. Until reaching out to the Patient Advocate Foundation all other organizations contacted had given us equivocal answers that left us with the same doubts and fears about what to do! I can’t praise the Patient Advocate Foundation and its people enough and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for their caring concern, thoroughness and excellent, informed help. Thank you and God bless!Denise, wife of patient | colon cancer
