Livestrong touts free services as cancer clinics turn away patients

Livestrong "has mobilized its free cancer support services to help anyone confronting challenges getting access to drugs understand their options and advocate on their behalf to ensure that a needed treatment is not withheld," the foundation said in a release Friday.

The foundation — once the pet cause of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong — provides counseling for cancer patients, as well as help finding treatment centers and navigating insurance policies.

“We stand ready to serve any person in the U.S. affected by cancer, through our comprehensive, free services that help cancer survivors and their families cope with the financial, emotional and practical challenges that accompany a diagnosis," Livestrong President Doug Ulman said.
