However, at the end of 2014, my oncologist claimed that there was growth in the tumor site and that she is recomending radiation treatments. She also confessed that there is a new biologic treatment, or "biological response modifier therapy" that is not covered by my insurance. She told me that it would cost $80,000.00. I really don't have that kind of money. I had to retire early from my position at UC San Diego, UCSD-TV about a year ago. My retirement funds were taxed to the hilt and the rest is almost gone.
If anyone could help me with the expense of this treatment, my wife and I would be eternally grateful. This is really my only chance for a cure.
