Here is the good news: Julie’s PET scan came back clear and the cancer has not spread, her genetic testing came back clear, she can do her online teaching job from home, and she has health insurance.
Here is the not-so-good news: As is the norm for health insurance, Julie has an out of pocket maximum each calendar year. Julie has already paid that amount for her treatment this fall. More bills, however, will start coming in again the first week of January 2018. Plus, there are additional expenses beyond the medical bills, which include post-surgery supplies, special dietary needs during chemotherapy, and gas money.
Julie is grateful to be surrounded by a great team of oncologists and surgeons as well as family, friends, and colleagues who are on the journey with her as she’s treated for cancer. Teachers in Arizona are on the bottom of the national pay scale for educators, so if you feel led, please consider making a contribution to help Julie meet her medical bills in 2018. Let’s bless Julie!
