I became very first diagnosed with cancer tumors whenever I had been a senior in university, getting ready to get a working job and start paying down my student education loans. I became lucky to possess college administrators who advocated in my situation, and my loans were quickly deferred. But the majority of of the 70,000 adults that are young with cancer tumors every year into the United States aren’t therefore happy. They continue steadily to rack up interest because they place their everyday lives on hold to undergo lifesaving cancer tumors remedies.
That’s why we urge Congress to pass the Deferment for Active Cancer Treatment Act of 2017 this session. This important but piece that is under-the-radar of will allow cancer tumors clients to qualify under current guidelines for education loan deferments as they undergo therapy.
Deferment isn’t brand new.
