CAGNO’s patient services program provides vital prescription medications and necessities to cancer patients who otherwise would have to do without. These include individuals who do not qualify for government assistance and cannot afford medical insurance. Those necessities crucial to the comfort and recovery of local cancer patients include chemo-therapeutic agents, antibiotics, anti-nausea and pain relieving medications as well as colostomy supplies, bed pads and other sick room equipment.
CAGNO strongly believes that education is a key tool in lowering cancer incidence and mortality in the Greater New Orleans area. By offering a variety of classes in cancer prevention to area schools and businesses, CAGNO is successfully achieving this goal.
