Hello everyone still trying to pay off loan for my breast cancer surgeries. I still have more reconstruction to finish when I can afford it.
I want to thank everyone who has helped.
Please put this out there on facebook so I can reach more people.
Well went back to Kaiser still have huge co pays. I have spent over $7000.00 for hysterectomy and breast cancer surgeries.
Need current testing to be done but don't have the money for co pays. Would also love to finish my reconstruction on my breast.
Thank you for all who have helped me.
Wow I was hurt at work and not getting enough to cover bills. I called to see if I could use rollover hours or vacation and was told no. Need help to make up pay I'm losing on disability. Please help if possible anything helps. Thank you so much
Still trying to pay off my loan for Breast Cancer Surgery. I would like to afford to finish reconstruction and have painful built up scar tissue removed.
Now I also have truck I'm trying to keep running needs front end work and back breaks.
Still trying to pay off my Breast Cancer loan at the bank for all the surgeries and infections. Now have current bills that were not covered by financial aide at Emanuel Hospital. Still have not finished reconstruction or gone back for built up scar tissue pain.
Had to go to doctors last week I'm sure another big bill coming. I was having trouble with my asthma and infections. I'm still looking for help to pay off loan for medical bills and current bills.
I can't believe these medical bills. Our insurance through work is killing me. I did my followup for breast cancer in August and I'm still getting medical bills. I thought mammograms were suppose to be covered as preventive care. Wrong!
If anyone can post this all over facebook or tweet it please do so to keep me in my home. Need Help Now!
Need help paying current and past medical bills. I wish I knew how to put this out to more people.
Need to have my heart checked out because of heart murmur getting louder. (Doctor Request)
I can not afford to go doctor for current heart issue or followups.
I'm so tired of being in the hole over medical bills. I'm suppose to have my heart checked out because of heart murmur getting louder. I just can't afford it with my works insurance and out of pocket cost. I'm so frustrated and upset right now.
Why can't people who need help paying off medical bills with Breast Cancer get no help. I just want to pay off loan I had to take to save my life from Breast Cancer and current bills.
If I asked for a trip or something crazy I would have no problem getting it.
Went to my one year out appointment. I had my mammogram and met with my cancer doctor. All went well!! Not looking forward to that bill but happy I'm alive and cancer free.
Would still like to finish reconstruction when I can afford it.
So frustrated trying to juggle bills month to month with no help. Planning on having yard sale to help me get ahead and finish my reconstruction. So upset to have to sale my things to finish up my reconstruction and feel better about myself.( Feel like a woman again)
Still trying to get money together to get caught up and finish my reconstruction. All these bills are killing me right now. I can't even afford to go on vacation this year. Didn't get much vacation time because of all the time I was off with surgeries and infections.
I just to say thank you for all the help I have been getting. I hope to have money to finish my reconstruction and follow ups this year.
I'm still looking for help to finish my reconstruction. I really wanted to be done with it. I still want to find out if I carry the gene for breast cancer too for my daughters safety. Why is everything so expensive?
Well with moving cost and no help with finances. It looks like it will be some time before I can finish my reconstruction. I really wanted to get it done to feel whole and better about myself. I will keep praying about finances maybe it will change soon.
I wish I could finish my reconstruction. I don't even think I will be able to afford my mammogram this year on my good side. I also wanted genetic testing to see if I carry the gene for breast cancer. I worry about my daughter getting breast cancer too. Why is there no help with the insane cost even with insurance?
Hope someday to finish my reconstruction maybe after I win the lottery, I wish.
So upset I can't finish my reconstruction because I can't afford any more medical bills. Doctors scheduled appointments and I had to cancel them. This is so depressing to me.
My doctors office called they want me to get in and finish my reconstruction. I want to get it done but I just don't have the money. Last year I had to take a loan to cover my medical costs. I can't afford another loan.
Well I have more procedures to come make a nipple and tattoo outer part to match other side.
I would love to get tattoo to kind of make my scar across back not look so bad. I was thinking of a flowers coming off the huge scar.
Getting worried about upcoming procedures might have to cancel no money to pay medical bills for the new year.
More reconstruction to come in Feb. I have to have nipple done on breast cancer side includes a tattoo.
I really need help through next year for medical cost.
I'm tired of worrying about bills every month. Disability does not pay much at all.
Writing update was put back in the hospital last Thursday for infection again. I was just released on Sunday with 2 different antibiotics and pain medicine.
Just got back from my first post op. appointment. Dr. Carr said I have lots of swelling but no infection.
At home broke again while healing. I 'm sad we won't be having Holidays this year. I'm just happy no more cancer and no more surgery I hope.
Surgery is over now at home sleeping a lot. Pain okay on the right side lots of pain on the left from the lift.
Tomorrow is the big day I go back to surgery. I'm praying this is last surgery I have to have.
Went to appts. today I'm cleared for surgery. The time off is really going to hurt me again. I still have not caught up with bills from the last time off.
Have 2 pre opp. appointments tomorrow. I hope my blood pressure is good since I have been so stressed.
Have my first pre opp appt. for next surgery this Thursday. Getting a little nervous.
I just paid on some more bills today. I thank the people who have helped me out. I don't wish this on anyone. The cost of Breast Cancer is insane and not getting much help has really hurt.
Getting frustrated more medical bills today. Will it ever end?
I'm getting closer to sugery date. I had a scare with expander last night. I woke to wet shirt I'm hoping it's okay wating to talk to my doctor.
Well I have my next surgery date it is November 14th. I am hoping to have current bills paid by then. Please donate to me so I can get them Paid.
Hello everyone thankyou for looking at my site. I'm happy to say I have stayed positive through out everything.
Bills bills and more bills. I never expected me being treated for breast cancer the reconstruction and infection would reach over $100,000. I still have more reconstruction next month.
Found out at doctors yesterday more reconstruction will done in November.
I want to thank everyone who is helping me put this out there. Having Breast Cancer and dealing with the bills has been very stressfull.
No one, certainly not me, ever expects to hear the words, "you've got cancer." I heard those words in April of 2012 and I'm still reeling from the impact. A diagnosis of breast cancer brings many issues to bear. Dealing with the loss of my right breast, being hospitalized for a severe infection , and financial problems are among the many situations I'm dealing with.
Like most families, I pretty much live pay check to pay check.
I was definitely not prepared for the devastation caused by my diagnosis. The surgery and recovery went very well, but I was not prepared for the infection, fatigue, pain, emotional distress. Don't get me wrong; I know I'm fortunate to be alive! I am thankful everyday I live in this modern time of medical breakthroughs.
Please help me raise money for this important cause! I'm grateful for any & all donations - No $$$ amount is too small or too great. Help me to get through this time as with much grace and dignity as possible. We all know that life is filled with uncertain circumstances; WE as a community can do our best to help, and one thing you can do is pass this link onto your social network!
Also, please continue to pray for God to continue providing the means to pay incoming medical bills, etc. What an amazing God we have, and he sure has provided in ways that we could never have imagined.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your support....your love....your kind words...and your prayers. You have ministered to our family in such a special way these past few months.
"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
