Thyroid cancer expenses

Hi everyone! 2 months ago I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. This cancer, however fairly common and very treatable was somewhat different in my case. After several scans, ultasounds and biopsies they determined that my cancer was within a thyroglossal duct cyst, a very rare and controversial circumstance. My doctor opted to remove just the tumor and fore-go a total thyroidectomy for the time being. Here I am post surgery and so far I am healthy and cancer free although I am needing routine scans for the next few years to make sure that it does not reoccur. My hospital bills from the surgery and scans are beggining to roll in and I am finding it hard to keep up with all the payments. I have health insurance with a very high deductible and low percentage of coverage but since I do have insurance, the hospital will not offer me any financial assistance. So here I am asking all of you to help share this story or make any kind of contribution big or small. My hospital stay for the surgery alone was about 11,000 and my insurance is only covering about 60% Any help is greatly appreciated even if it is simply sharing the link. Thank you to all of my family and friends.
