Kenneth Halperin’s Work for the City Bar’s Cancer Advocacy Project

By WRSH on May 13, 2015 - Comments off

Kenneth Halperin VolunteerWhen not handling personal injury cases as a partner of Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP, attorney Kenneth Halperin volunteers with the City Bar Justice Center’s Cancer Advocacy Project (CAP) – a non-profit 501(c)(3) that provides pro bono legal services to individuals who might not otherwise receive the legal guidance they need due to financial straits.

The City Bar is an affiliate of the New York City Bar Association that provides numerous avenues for attorneys and legal experts to give back to the community, creating a valuable resource for information and assistance for those who may have difficulty affording quality legal representation. The Cancer Advocacy Project, in particular, helps cancer patients, survivors, their families, and caregivers in the following areas:

Estate planning – Drafting wills, powers of attorney, healthcare proxies, etc.

Health insurance issues – Appealing unjust health insurance coverage decisions

Workplace rights – Challenging cancer-related discrimination in the workplace

Medical debt – Identifying sources of financial assistance to avoid or overcome debt

The individuals and families that receive assistance through CAP are in great need of compassion and empathy, in addition to trusted legal advocacy. In many cases, upon diagnosis, cancer patients are faced with more than just emotional and physical challenges, but also the inordinate financial costs of even the most basic medical care.
