Larissa’s Fight With MBC

$4,600 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 43 people in 1 month
Since March of 2016 I have shared my journey facing metastatic breast cancer. I’ve been fortunate to have received help when I discovered I would start fighting for my life in 2016 at 30 years old. I received both financial donations and support in other forms, like those who so generously helped my husband Martin and I make memories wherever and whenever we could. The New Year, 2018, will be dramatically different, because the price of my health insurance is going to soar. I also discovered that not only will we have to figure out how to pay $1,100 a month for health insurance, but my treatment hospital — Dana Farber — will not be considered in-network anymore. This means that on top of the $1,100 monthly payment, we will have to pay $4,500 out of pocket before my insurance will kick in   When I’m able, I am the energizer bunny, trying to do good while I still can, whether it’s helping spread awareness about metastatic breast cancer, helping empower people with disabilities, or simply trying to keep a roof over our heads.   The change in both the costs of my insurance and the removal of Dana Farber from my health network has me very worried about how I’m going to sustain the medical care I’ve received the past (almost) two years. Cancer is financially devastating. We spent close to $15,000 on medical care in 2016, then in 2017 we had a little break where we only spent about $10,500. But 2018 is looking like it’s going to cost us about $18,000. We are so thankful for everyone who has helped us during our journey, and I’m deeply embarrassed to ask for help again. But today, when I sat in my doctor’s office as she told me that my cancer is on the move yet again, I could barely process the bad news because I immediately thought “How can I pay for this?” It sucks to worry about how to survive this new bump in my journey while drowning in medical bills. Asking for help $4500 to help get me through the initial out of pocket expenses.
