Hi everyone. I was diagnosed last week with colon cancer. I am scheduled to have colon re-section 12/22 and was told I will be out of work about 6-8 weeks. I have great insurance that is going to cover medical bills, but I only have 2 weeks of vacation time to help pay other bills. I don't want to end up homeless after surgery. Does anyone know where I can get answers for short term medical disability or other forms of help.
By the way, I live alone and parents are on Soc.Sec. so there isn't anyone else that can help out.
