Abstract
Medical non-adherence in breast cancer survivors can be attributed to out-of-pocket (OOP) expenditures. A cancer survivor is defined as anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer and is still living. Some prominent variables that affect OOP spending are income, age, weight, ethnicity, etc. The relationship between OOP spending and these variables will be examined using a variety of multi linear regression analysis and their supporting tests. Discovering variables that help us understand why certain survivors pay more per year on health are valuable because we may then be more aware of when a survivor is more likely to be medically non adherent.
