More Than Pink: The Real Cost of Cancer with Greg Lee

Prior to becoming President of LIVESTRONG in 2016, Greg Lee served as its Chief Financial Officer for nearly 10 years, responsible for the integrity and operation of all financial, accounting, technology and compliance activities for the LIVESTRONG Foundation. LIVESTRONG focuses on the person with cancer, not just the disease itself. We discuss the financial impact of a cancer diagnosis/treatment as well as more than just the “out of pocket cost” that goes along with it.

“Being a financial person for much of my life, I’ve seen a lot of line item budgets, but I’ve never seen a cancer line item on a budget. Certainly if you did that it would single-handedly be the largest dollar amount in the budget.”
