Cancer Patients

From All Rights (Kol-Zchut) (www.kolzchut.org.il)

This portal contains extensive information about the special treatments (such as chemotherapy) and social rights of those battling cancer.

Cancer is not just one specific disease; but rather, the term may be used to refer to any one of more than 200 different types of cancer. Cancer is characterized by rapid and uncontrolled reproduction of cells in the body. The difference between the different types of cancer depends on the organ in which the growth develops, the type of cells from which it develops, and different microbiological processes. As the result of impressive progress in cancer treatment in recent years, cancer is now generally treated as a chronic illness. A cancer patient must not only fight the disease, but the patient and his/her family must also be aware of all of their rights within the healthcare system, in addition to all options for financial and emotional support.
