Hi, my name is Melissa "Missy" Birdsong. I have recently been diagnosed with Stage 3 Endometrial Cancer. I had original only been diagnosed with Stage 1 Uterine Cancer and told the possibility of it spreading were none to zero. Well after a specific hormone treatment for several months and getting other medical issues under control. I was scheduled for surgery on 10/12/14. Well the cancer that was caught very early and had virtually no chance of spreading did just that. The pathologist working on my case after surgery found that my cancer had spread (mastitis'd) to other parts of my reproductive organs. I am not the kind of person to ask for help but my family and I are really struggling now due to my current diagnoses as well as a current lose of insurance. I had insurance via my husbands (James) employer until 11/11/14. He changed jobs to be able to be home with me more often (he is a truck driver) and now we have to wait at least 3 mo for him to be eligible for insurance. We do qualify for Cobra insurance from his previous employer which is what I am needing help with. Currently I have until 12/20/14 to come up with the Cobra payment of $3,303.11 which will cover me until my husbands insurance from his new job kicks in. I have exhausted all other options, I am disabled and do not qualify for Medicaid or Medicare. I hate being a Debi Downer in this request since I typically am a fun loving outgoing person, but the thought of not being able to get my chemo txs because i don't have medical insurance is extremely depressing and not an option due to being stage 3. Any thing you can help with would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!
