Medvantx Helps Lung Cancer Patients Get the Medications they Need
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, and Medvantx Inc. would like to raise critical awareness and stand together in support to fight the second most common cancer in the world. It is estimated that 1 in 16 people will be diagnosed with lung cancer in their lifetime and that 236,740 adults in the United States will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year.
Caring for Patients
Treatment options for lung cancer vary according to age, cancer type, extent of disease, medication tolerance, and patient preference. Medvantx partners with top pharmaceutical manufacturers to provide Patient Assistance Programs (PAP) to improve lung cancer patient medication adherence and ensure timely access to therapy. Our multidisciplinary team is dedicated to help streamline the prescription fulfillment process, improve patient health outcomes, and assure no patient is left behind due to financial barriers.
Medvantx works with pharmaceutical manufacturers and health care providers to seamlessly execute the prescription fulfillment process and delivers directly to a patient’s home or physician’s office. Medvantx dispenses numerous prescription medications targeted to help treat lung cancer every day. Our partnership with four of the top 10 PAP providing pharmaceutical manufacturers enables Medvantx to touch the lives of over 8,000 patients annually battling lung cancer nationwide.
Reducing Your Risk
Smoking is the primary risk factor for lung cancer and is the cause for 80% to 90% of lung cancer related deaths. Regardless of how long you’ve been smoking, quitting is the most vital step you can take towards a healthier life and the benefits of quitting are both immediate and long term.
We understand quitting isn’t easy and the best attempts are planned. For over 40 years, the American Cancer Society has hosted the Great American Smokeout, an all-day nationwide event which encourages people to plan to quit or quit smoking altogether. On November 17, 2022, Medvantx challenges you to join thousands of people across the country to take the first step towards a healthier smoke-free life.
