we sold. But I’m having health issues and supporting my 17-year-old son. Do I need professional help?Answer: We are so sorry to hear about your health issues, and know that dealing with a life-threatening health issue, a complicated situation with your personal life and a big financial question at the same time can lead to lots of stress. Fortunately, the Financial Planning Association developed a nonprofit called Family Reach that provides cancer patients with meaningful resources to help with their financial circumstances for free. “To qualify for the program, you have to have a cancer diagnosis, be in active treatment or have completed treatment within one year, receive treatment at a hospital within the US and be represented by a healthcare professional who can communicate with the nonprofit on your behalf,” says certified financial planner Danielle Miura of Spark Financials.
