URGENT TREATMENTS NEEDED! In 2018 I was diagnosed with Stage 1 Renal Cell Carcinoma and had my right kidney removed, I have been clear on scans until now. I am now diagnosed with Stage 4 RCC that has spread to both adrenal glands so now the cancer is traveling. I will be starting chemotherapy treatment, taking 2 pills a day of Inlyta and infusions every 3 weeks of Keytruda. I will be on this treatment indefinitely. I am self employed which means my insurance is very expensive costing me $580 a month. Even with the insurance I have expensive copays for every scan which is $250-$650 each, I will be getting scans even more frequently once chemo starts next week. With the possibility of being unable to work, the high insurance costs and copays I am worried about how I will pay for my treatments as insurance does not cover 100%. Treatments are a $2000 copay for each injection and a $3000 copay a month for each bottle of pills. Medical bills are already piling up and I am just paying them as I can, because unfortunately due to all of the medical costs I have depleted our savings. My wife and I help by volunteering for dog rescues and we are usually the ones giving money to all the rescues to help save these animals and now I am in desperate need of saving myself. I am beyond grateful for any help you can give and if not monetary, prayers and positive thoughts are appreciated.
