LegalHealth's model is ideal... When LegalHealth is able to reverse denial of treatment decisions they make it possible for patients to benefit from the advancements in cancer care that are available today. Legal intervention in workplace issues can mean that patients often continue working, providing not only income and medical insurance but the stability and normalcy needed with cancer. An attorney's help can also bring cancer care full circle, since lawyers are not only involved supplementarily during the care process, but can make the care process itself possible by enabling access to that care.— Carolyn Messner, DSW, MSW, CancerCare, and President, Association of Oncology Social Work
