Additionally, cancer patients and survivors are often unable to find adequate and affordable coverage in the individual market. The Wellness Community (TWC), an international nonprofit, has been providing support and education programs to people affected by cancer free of charge over the last 27 years in over 100 locations.

This program is made possible through unrestricted educational grants from Genentech BioOncology and Eli Lilly and Company.
