My cancer fight

My name is Patricia Caputo, and I  have been diagnosed with Stage Four Breast Cancer that has Metastasized to my ribs, spine, bones, and stomach lining.  I have also been diagnosed with Lepto-meningeal Carcinomatosis. (Which is cancer that has developed on the meningeal surounding the brain.) The Meningeal cancer Is not curible, but it is treatable.  The Breast cancer  that has spread,  is treatable.  The medical bills are astronomical, and Healthcare is very expensive.  I have to pay every month to  AARP United Health Care to make up for the other 20% of each bill I receive (and have received).  It is overwhelming.  Most of the bills are not covered because of "pre-existing conditions."  Some others are denied as "not medically necessary".  

I appreciate everyone that has or will support my cause.
It gives me hope and gives me strength to get through this.
