Hi, I am new here, but my wife has been in for treatment for stage 1v lung cancer. She was given a complete response to treatment, but now it has moved to her bone and they are doing radiation.The Dr says he expects that this will stop it in it's tracks.
Up until now we have had insurance and we continue to pay for it thru the cobra act, as soon as that happened the charges skyrocketed. I thought it was because of the rising cost of health care, but it a strange coincedence. So after seeing this, I contacted the social worker at the clinic. She said she could help but immediatly wanted to conduct a wallet biopsy. Good grief what does last years income have to do with now? We are getting SS disability and drawing from her retirement, minus $1200.00 a month for insurance, then minus the other usuals,pills,gas,house,heat, water,etc. My question does anybody have any ideas on where to talk with somebody before our ships sinks. I don't want to talk to my wife about this, she has enough to deal with. Thanks to any or all who respond.
