I was diagnosed with tongue cancer in late November 2017. My wife and I are both self employed . I have a wonderful business and personal relationship with a computer firm handling my computer service calls . My wife does interior design consulting as well as painting. Due to my care she has missed out on painting and design consulting opportunities. Since the diagnosis we have spent $1500 in co pays and $1000 in traveling expenses to Penn in Phila , 80 mile round trip . We also have a $1500 deductible to pay on my hospital stay Jan 9th - 12th . We have medical supplies that where sent to us at home. The insurance company is covering a percentage of the home supplies. We have spent  $750 to date on Ensure products for my dietary needs. We will need these products though May/June 2018. My treatments start Feb 5th to March 23rd , Beyond March the $80 copays continue with visits to the specialists. Visits every 3 months the first year,every 4 months the second year, every 6 months the third year ramping down to the 5 year mark. My wife and I are faced with 7 weeks of limited income and upcoming travel and medical expenses. We have two teenage girls and their needs to consider also. Any help will ease some of the strain as we face 7 weeks of daily radiation/ chemo Thanks so much for taking the time to read my bio
