Hey guys and gals! My name is Dana and I'm 25 years old. I was diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer last July/August 2004. I've been receiving very, very expensive treatments and am currently getting Social Security disability income (which is not a whole lot to begin with) but am having to pay for expensive COBRA health insurance through my previous employer. I've been amazed at how little help I can get, such as receiving a medical card, to help with my life-saving treatments, just because of my age and that I don't have any kids or am not pregnant. I just wanted to know, I guess, that I'm not alone, and if anyone else has been able to find a program to help with bills and the cost of treatments (that I could be receiving for the rest of my life). Thanks, and sorry to vent, I'm just a frustrated gal..... Take care everyone!
