Hi Edna, I just thought about cancercare.org, its worth applying for assistance, in fact they helped me with some financial assistance, and maybe they can connect you to some other resources. Here is the link: http://www.cancercare.o rg/get_help/assistance/index.p hp I found out about them through the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Additionally, contact the American Cancer Society in your area if you have not done so. I pray they can help, and I concur so much with what are you saying. Many people need help who are without insurance, who work, or just hitting hard times...we should not let people die needlessly, or force them into emergency rooms as a last recourse. Continue to press on, and fight. May God grant His strength to go through this, healed and whole again, in Jesus name, Amen *Edna, the link keeps breaking up, and i tried to edit this, but it does not take, just try http://www.cancercare.org and probe from their to the financial assistance section

Thank you for all your comments & prayers, it mean a lot for me. I am trying to approach our government health offices, they are also helping us look for sponsors, they don't have much fund to finance my medication. I was totally dismayed to be honest with our government.I've heared about in US or other countries, they're government are really accomodating to help their citizens who are sick, they can rceive medication without spending a single penny. But here, you cant even enter a hospital without downpayment. It will be better for me to go to non-government organizations, i think they can help me better. Thank you.

I just seen your post, and I too was in a similar dilemma, with stage III uterine cancer, no money, and no insurance. I dont have any money I can send you, believe me, i wish i could send it. Go to your state departement of human services, and ask for medical assistance--then apply for disability. When I took these two steps, I was able to get treatment for the cancer with no insurance or money upfront. I told the hospitals and doctors my "Medicaid was pending" every time they ask about insurance or a payment. A social worker at the hospital informed to take these steps, and if I were you, I would talk to the social worker at your hospital about any charity programs they might have. No one offered to tell me these things, I had to dig it out, but it worked for me, and I was approved for medical assistance. God bless and you are in my prayers.
