after many rounds of chemo including chop and four rounds of rutuxin i didnt go into complete remission and now the doctors want me to have a stem cell transplant with full body radiation at fred hutchison medical center. i have to live in seattle in an apartment for up to three months after the initial hospital stay (3 weeks). how can i afford to do this? i wont be working and im afraid of losing my house and truck for which ive worked very hard for. im not sure what to do or if the insurance company will help pay for the apartment. is there any help or does anyone have any suggestions for me? anyone ever go through this? im pretty much lost and i dont think SSI will help me.
