Ok so I have a question for you all... How has cancer affected you financially? I aks because it has really put us in a bind. Hubby has only worked 7 hrs. since Feb. I work pt at 27 hrs/week. I do get child support for now,and have just barely been able to keep our heads above water. Hubby carries the health insur. on all of us ( 2 boys and us). They told us they'd carry us though June. Anyone on disability? Hubby thinks it will ruin our credit if we get assistance or disabilty. (right now our credit is excellent) anyone know? We also have no life insurance except supplimental thru my work. Too late to get him any... No mortage insurance. No aflac. I ask because I wonder what to do after our insurance is cancelled. I told him to forget about going back to work and go for disabilty. Won't he get Medicare then? Anyone on this? What is coverage like for cancer patients? What do you pay out of pocket. What about chemo or RX? I tr not to think about it, but it really worries me. Hubby has spent the last 6 yrs building our home and it's only 1/2 done with no funds to spare... no savings to speak of.
