Havent started treatment yet. Still exploring which radiation technique is going to be best. Either gamme knife or proton thearpy if im a canidate. Nothing chemo can really do.

Going on my third cancer diagnosis before 30.....ya the finacials is worst than the medicine in my opinion. Social workers are awesome at fginding charities, benevolent benefactors, and all manner of donations. The American Cancer Society is a huge resource. Their are a ton of resources out there. I have never been denied treatment because of outstanding bills. Just worry about getting better and getting the care you need!

Thanks for the encouragement :) I'm going to do my best to just focus on getting better for now. I'll absolutely be sure to contact the social workers within my healthcare network. I'll research the American Cancer Society too! This is all great information and I can't thank you enough.

It's amazing you've conquered cancer twice already and I have no doubt you'll knock it out again.

And auntbertha.com is a database of all sorts of charities. All will get better!

  1. If you're a puker who's forced to drive like I am, a store plastic bag, with a handle looped over each ear, allows you to puke and still watch the road! I recommend double bagging just in case.

  2. A disposable diaper filled with water and stuck in the freezer make the BEST ice packs! They're dry against your skin, don't leak water on bedding, stay cold forever, tabs can be used to fasten to problem areas.....

That's all I got for now!
