I had the very best news, that I have been praying for. I just got the phone call that said I was eligible for a part of medicaid for Montana Breast and Cervical cancer. My coverage will go back and pick up the bills i have accrued and continue while I am all done with treatment. That won't be for 5 years as i will be on a estrogen inhibiter. Thank God.

I won't be able to go to Colorado as planned for rads..but my daughter will come to Billings Mt. and spend time with me through this. We are just so happy that bills will be covered. What a worry and stress this has been for me.

Changing the subject but The Heavenly Hats Foundation donates the cutest hats for medical patients. I think I got the address from a post Re gave us a while back. I filled out a few questions on line and they sent a "Hat Package" I received several new hats all different kinds and very cute! I thought i would post this address for you who could use them. It is founded by a teenager you can e-mail at [email protected] or you can hold a hat parade to help other patients. the website is WWW.HEAVENLYHATS.COM

Just thought i'd let you know and God Bless
Jackie

    Wonderful news
    Jackie,

    I am so happy that some of the financial mess that comes with cancer is now allieviated. What a relief, indeed. Stress is something we definitely don't need right now.

    I love Heavenly Hats, too. They sent me TWO packages filled with cute winter hats, bandanas, and summer hats, plus a scarf. What wonderful people. After that, I sent them a donation and had my mom and all her friends donate to them as well. They are a very worthy organization.

    Happy Dance!
    Oh, Jackie, I am so thrilled for you! What wonderful news, and what a burden lifted.

    Thanks for the hat information. I am running a bit low and will definitely check out the website. I recalled something about it but could not remember where or when. So, thanks to you and to Re.

    What great news Jackie.
    What great news Jackie. It's so stressful to fight this disease as it is that adding the worries of insurance coverage or lack of can be even more demoralizing. I'm glad you were approved and everything is working out for you. I never knew about the hat site but I will be looking into it and seeing if they accept donations also. Hugs, Lili

    Jackie, I am so happy you
    Jackie, I am so happy you are getting your tx covered. I honestly can't imagine how people manage paying for it themselves since the meds are so expensive. And then if you can't work, you need your income covered. Worrying about all that would have me curled up in a ball on the floor. :) There has been some really sad cases. And I'm going to check out your heavenlyhats, our hospital could probably use some.
    love

    Jackie, what good news about
    Jackie, what good news about your treatment coverage. I guess prayer does work, as you have been at the top of my list regarding this insurance business. Also, thank you for the information the hats. I have several friends who are just starting treatment, and will pass this along. Hugs to you, and let's celebrate.
