We aren't well off financially and only have one car. So now we have paid around 400$ in the last month for just gas money to get to his treatments in Milwaukee from Plymouth. My husband drives me there then goes home. We have been in the hospital for 5 day stays or in and out two or three times a week. It's unpredictable. We are scared of falling behind which is already happening. Our utilities remain unpaid, we are worried about rent, and the groceries. I'm constantly cooking for Dexter to find him something he likes so he will eat to keep his weight on for chemotherapy. We are praying for a miracle. We need help. I don't want to end up homeless or with utilities turned off.
Also he is on a new medication everolimus. It treats late stage cancers. The copayment for this is $150.00 on top of the $150.00 for the nuelasta shot he gets. the everolimus is a 14 day pill that he takes between chemotherapy, so it not even a month passed until we owe another 150$ just for one medication. My husbands insurance will only have these meds ordered through an out of state specialty pharmacy called accredo, but since they are out of state they will will not bill our state insurance.
