Advocacy

Our goal at PAN is to support people living with life-threatening, chronic and rare diseases by addressing the full range of their needs. Beyond providing financial assistance, we link patients with resources that can address the physical and emotional complexities of their disease, and advocate for improved access and affordability.

Education and Support for Patients

Managing an illness is difficult, and we know that people who apply for assistance from PAN may need support beyond co-payment assistance. Patients often have questions about their disease, treatment, side effects and medication adherence. And they may benefit from connecting with a compassionate community that can help them deal with the physical and emotional complexities of their disease.
