Thyroid Cancer and No Insurance?

I was just wondering if anyone out there knows of any type of assistance available. I've been trying to look around online but I can't find anything. I recently got let go from my job and my insurance is going to drop at the end of this month and I have all of my one-year tests and check-ups coming up next month. They offered for me to keep my insurance through COBRA, but its so expensive that I can't afford it even with my unemployment checks. I really am just at a loss, so if anyone knows of any organizations out there or anything like that, i would really appreciate any info.

    depending on what state you
    depending on what state you live, some may have med ins pools. For Calif, they have one but the waiting list is at least a yr. also call American Cancer Socitey at 800-227-2345 24/7 for further suggestions.

    I have insurance through my local social service office. It's optima health, an hmo. But so many doctors refuse to take it.
