Joyce Catozella-Green/Treatment

Joyce Catozella-Green is my ex-mother-in-law and I still consider her part of my family. She has triple-negative aggressive breast cancer .  When it comes to cancer, negative is a bad thing. Triple negative is really bad. She has to have surgery and chemotherapy and she's not sure yet whether she has to have radiation treatments. 

The only insurance she has is through Social Security, which isn't enough. She doesn't qualify for Medicaid. She has already had to pay well over $500 out of her own pocket in the last month, which is more than she gets a month from Social Security. Her family has been helping her as much as we can, but there's no way we can come up with the kind of money she needs in the short amount of time she has to get it in. 

Joyce is a really great woman who does whatever she can for her family and friends. She is also raising her great-grandson. He recently turned 13 and knows she has cancer, he just doesn't know how bad it is. He's having a really hard time with it and she is trying really hard not to let him know just how bad she feels. He has lived with Joyce, his Nana, since he was 3 years old and he really loves her. Please help Joyce get the treatment she needs so that he and all of her family and friends  have Joyce around for a lot longer.
