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
Thank you for all your comments & prayers, it mean a lot for me. I am trying to approach our government health offices, they are also helping us look for sponsors, they don't have much fund to finance my medication. I was totally dismayed to be honest with our government.I've heared about in US or other countries, they're government are really accomodating to help their citizens who are sick, they can rceive medication without spending a single penny. But here, you cant even enter a hospital without downpayment. It will be better for me to go to non-government organizations, i think they can help me better. Thank you.
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.
I raised my child alone,I work 2 jobs just to raise my daughter. Two years ago a tumor was discovered in my breast, i tried to ignore it but it grows bigger until the doctor advised me for a removal. Last year i had an operation,the tumor was removed here in our local hospital, the tumor was sent to the city for a biopsy. The doctor told me that the result is cancerous. A chemotheraphy is needed because the cancer has the possibility to spread all over my body.I just ignored it because i know it's impossible for me to raise $5000 just for the chemotheraphy sessions (excluding medicines,transportation expenses & allowance to stay in big city because we dont have chemotherapy here in the province), i continued to work for us to survive until last December that i felt weak and began to notice swells in my head & my stomach. I become weaker & weaker each day. I dont know where to ask for help until i heared this site from my cousin. I want to fight the cancer for my daughter, I was wrong when i gave up, i know its not yet too late for me to undergo medications. My life is in your hands, for those who read this, im begging you to help me. Im knocking to your hearts, please share even a small amount for my medication.Pls. email me to show your support in any way. Please contact me with my cousins number +639173065231, we dont have a phone at home, she's the one encourage me & told me not to be ashame to beg here. Im very hopeful that there are people with good hearts out there and are very willing to share their blessings! May you be blessed by a sevenfold times because of your kind and generous heart!(pix above is our place, a peaceful place in Southern Leyte)
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.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! I'm new at this, but don't count it as an accident at all. I came across this web site after praying and asking God to give me direction and show favor. After writing serveral messages and deleating them, I pray this one last. I'm a single parent and it seems most of us out here are struggling. I can go on and on about what I need and don't have, but I have nothing right now, enough said right? So I'm in need of everything you might say. My son is wondering exactly what is going on, and it's hard. However, in spite of it all, I'm Blessed! This is plea for you to share any way that you can. I hope you first will pray my strength to continue to go through any more trials, for I know they will come. Please pray and ask God to give you the decision on your heart and, if you decide to share, please share! I'm also open to ways of increasing my finances, I'd greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading and I pray even if you cannot help, let me know you read my message. Be Blessed!
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.
Good Lord Almighty! You don't know what problems are until you hear the problems other people have and then your own seem so stupid and minor. I wish I had a million dollars that I could help everyone on this aid page. Good luck to you and I will pray for you. May God bless you and help you! Sincerely, Nice Lady
Hi, this is from Nice Lady. It seems that the economy has become so bad lately that every State is having the same problems. My heart goes out to you for your little boy. It must be heartbreaking to see your little child suffering. I was blessed with very healthy children. We just seem to be having constant financial problems and not making ends meet. May the Good Lord bless you and yours. Sincerely, Nice Lady
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.
I am a mother of five, two of which still live at home. I was a patient care assistant and last June I had a very bad broken dislocated ankle. I had four surgeries and after the second one I developed a staph infection which resulted in the plate being removed too soon and therefore all the bones shifted to where I can't go back to my normal kind of work. I will need surgery again to correct the problem, but due to the staph infection, I can't have surgery for years down the road. I have to change careers and have been out of work since June 2006. I was able to get unemployment, but only $l60 per week. My husband was subcontracting to a builder and lost his job also due to the business getting slow. We are trying so hard to get a job and are only living on $600 per month. Our rent is $800 and we are currently working it off with our angel landlady. We have exhausted help from family and friends and we are starting to get pretty scared. It is a struggle to get through each week buying food and paying utilities and paying for gasoline to find jobs. Any kind of help from anyone would be so greatly appreciated. My husband and I are in our fifties and this is also making it difficult to find jobs plus my disability makes me a liability to companies. PLEASE SOME GUARDIAN ANGEL OUT THERE, WE NEED HELP
