Hi Edna, I just thought about cancercare.org, its worth applying for assistance, in fact they helped me with some financial assistance, and maybe they can connect you to some other resources. Here is the link: http://www.cancercare.o rg/get_help/assistance/index.p hp I found out about them through the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Additionally, contact the American Cancer Society in your area if you have not done so. I pray they can help, and I concur so much with what are you saying. Many people need help who are without insurance, who work, or just hitting hard times...we should not let people die needlessly, or force them into emergency rooms as a last recourse. Continue to press on, and fight. May God grant His strength to go through this, healed and whole again, in Jesus name, Amen *Edna, the link keeps breaking up, and i tried to edit this, but it does not take, just try http://www.cancercare.org and probe from their to the financial assistance section
I just seen your post, and I too was in a similar dilemma, with stage III uterine cancer, no money, and no insurance. I dont have any money I can send you, believe me, i wish i could send it. Go to your state departement of human services, and ask for medical assistance--then apply for disability. When I took these two steps, I was able to get treatment for the cancer with no insurance or money upfront. I told the hospitals and doctors my "Medicaid was pending" every time they ask about insurance or a payment. A social worker at the hospital informed to take these steps, and if I were you, I would talk to the social worker at your hospital about any charity programs they might have. No one offered to tell me these things, I had to dig it out, but it worked for me, and I was approved for medical assistance. God bless and you are in my prayers.
Hi Blessed 24/7, I wish I had money to give you, but I dont. I certainly will pray for you and I pray God will send resources and ideas your way. May He grant you His wisdom, strength, and overcoming grace as you come out victoriously. Isaiah 40:29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Hi Nice Lady: I just want to thank you for the encouraging words you wrote. It means a lot to me just knowing people care, and that is one of the best gifts of all! Take care and God bless you!! *I might post this twice, I am not tech savvy, and it looks like the first posting did not take.
Well, you know how life goes. We all experience trials. "The enemy will come in like a flood, but the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him"(Isaiah 59:19). My hope ultimately resides in Him, but I thought---why not give this a shot anyway? I have nothing to lose by doing so.
I have developed excruciating pain over and throughtout my body, and find it very difficult to function in all of this. Doctors may be considering placing a shunt in my head, and I do NOT want this! Shunts can be problematic! I am on disability, and its my desire to be able to return to work again and live a normal life again. And to top the sundae off, my car has begun to have problems with the heat/air, but more importantly---the defroster! Its humid in these parts!!! And I literally cannot drive it at times for that reason.
If anyone feels compelled to help, please contact me. I am placing my hope in God to turn this around, and I believe He will turn it around eventually. Sometimes He uses people to help others. Any help, no matter how small is appreciated.
