I’m fighting breast cancer and ins little help

Hi, my name is Jackie. I am 43 and have been married since Feb 2001. I have a son who is 21 and about to start his 2nd semester of college. I was diagnosed with breast cancer on 11/11/22. I am finding out my ins isn’t going to pay for much (I paid $600 before I was diagnosed and they limit what services they will pay. I applied for Medicaid, but make too much (I still live from paycheck to paycheck though). I have a cancer policy that pays some stuff also, but limits are low. Quoted price of 3 tests and they will be over $9,800. This is not covered by ins. I have started chemo, but since then I am having to take shots to boost my numbers, which isn’t covered either. I will need a surgery and scans again to see if they removed all signs of cancer. I do not know what to do other than ask here. I put $50,000 to at least get a start. Not sure what this will cost, and I don’t want to ask for large number bc I am not trying to profit, just save my life. I would appreciate any help I can get.
