CancerCare and the LegalHealth division of the New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG) have joined in a collaboration called the Palliative Care Advocacy Project, funded by the Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation, to establish free legal clinics for New York City CancerCare clients (persons with cancer and their caregivers).
LegalHealth, a division of NYLAG, focuses on assisting clients with health care-related legal needs. LegalHealth attorneys will provide assistance with government benefits, immigration, insurance disputes, debtor/creditor issues, employment matters, housing, custody planning, estate planning, and advance directives.
The CancerCare LegalHealth Clinic is held telephonically on the first and third Thursday of the month. Appointments are mandatory.
