You might ask about clinical trials, I think they are free. Also some pharmaceutical companies can help with costs. You need to talk to his doc for sources.

and don't have insurance. They have a state medicare program, and I am sure NY does too. They pay for everything if what you make isn't too high. Check into that.

I would also contact your state representatives. Sometimes getting a politician involved can really speed things up. The last thing one needs at a time like this is financial stress! Good luck and God Bless.

Hi Valerie,

I too was in a situation such as this. I applied for a few things. One of which was my state's health insurance plan. Perhaps he can apply for Medical assistance/Medicaid.

NY has a health insurance plan. I have copied the link below:

You may also want to check into the National and local LLS (Leukemia Lymphoma society). If there is funding, your boyfriend may be eligible to have treatments paid up to $5,000 nationally and $150.00 locally. The national can also reimburse insurance payments up to $5,000.

Good luck.

My husband has NHL and we do have insurance but we were able to get a check for 150.00 from the lymphoma society. It is not much I know but it is a little something. I can not image the worry you have on top of his diagnosis with the bills. They are so huge !!!
I shall pray for you both. Please ask your oncologist about a form to get money from the lymphoma society. If they do not have the information ... look on line.
