Tailoring support to patients’ daily needs. Together.
We offer personalized support to help patients with some of their day-to-day challenges.
How Care Champions Help
When your patients need support for their day-to-day challenges, we want to be a place they can turn to for help. That’s why Pfizer Oncology Together provides patients prescribed our medications with a dedicated Care Champion. Our Care Champions, who have social work experience, are ready to listen to patients and then connect them to resources that may help with some of their daily needs.
We can connect patients to resources for emotional support and other day-to-day challenges they may face*:
Local, online, and diagnosis-specific support groups and programs that connect patients with people who understand what they’re going through.
An independent organization’s helpline that provides patients and their loved ones with short-term counseling and emotional assistance.
*Some services are provided through third-party organizations that operate independently and are not controlled by Pfizer. Availability of services and eligibility requirements are determined solely by these organizations.
To help patients manage life with their diagnosis, Pfizer Oncology created LivingWith™. This free app is designed to help your patients connect with their loved ones, ask for the support they need, remember important information from doctors’ visits, and stay organized, all in one place.
The LivingWith™ app is available to all patients and their loved ones, and is not specific to any products supported by Pfizer Oncology Together.

Transportation and Lodging
We can connect patients to an independent organization that provides these services to patients who qualify†:
Free transportation to and from treatment-related appointments through volunteers who donate their time and the use of their personal vehicles.
Lodging in a homelike, nurturing environment when receiving treatment away from home.
†Services are provided through a third-party organization that operates independently and is not controlled by Pfizer. Availability of services and eligibility requirements are determined solely by the organization.
If patients are leaving work for a time during treatment, or preparing to return to work, we can send them information that may help make the transition easier. Topics include:
- Deciding whether to share their diagnosis with co-workers
- Understanding their rights as employees
- Dealing with burnout as a working caregiver
If patients want information on living with their condition, we can direct them to a variety of materials such as:
- Nutritional information
- Communication tips for talking with healthcare providers or loved ones
- Toolkits specific to their prescribed medication
- Brochures with information on topics such as dosing and side effects
