Hi, my name is Kathy. I was diagnosed with Stage 2 cervical cancer. I have no insurance or money. I am scared - knowing I will die - lack of treatment. I cry all the time. My stomach hurts, and now having bowel problems. Please pray for me. Because God is all I have to get me from this life to the next.

The Hill Burton organization 800-638-0742 gives grants to people who need medical care, but don't have insurance. An organization called Cancer Care 800-813-4673 also assists people without health insurance. The links below can help people obtain free or reduced prescriptions. I hope these resources are able to help you get the care you need. http://www.needymeds.com http://www.freemedicineprogram.com http://headaches.about.com/cs/rxassistance http://organtx.org/rxassist.htm http://www.helpingpatients.org http://www.phillsmith.com/drugs.htm http://rxcaresforme.org

Maybe This Can Help

Hi Kathy The same thing happened to me, only my scare is ovarian not cervical--I went to the ER with no money or health insurance--When the ER dr told me I had to stay overnight for a biopsy I was almost in tears worrying how to pay for this. The ER dr. put me in touch with the hospital social worker-he gave me the number to public assistance which I did not think would help me because I have a job. I was so wrong! I called the number, went in to talk to a case worker (also brought my medical records from the hospital!) and they were as nice as could be. I now have coverage with Medicaid( I left the office with coverage!) which has eased my worrying unbelievably. I had to swallow my pride but this was a matter of life or death. MINE! And I did it--please don't give up-exhaust all options and then be persistant and do it again. Also many hospitals have grants that are there for people who cannot pay-tell admissions when you go and get the forms---it never hurts to apply! Good luck with everything!--I wish you the very best!....Christine

I have been getting my Cancer Medication from Canada for over a year. Locally what I was paying was so expensive I was expecting to have to sell my house because I couldn’t save enough for the taxes. Getting my medication from Canadian Prescription drugs has enabled me to stay in my home.

My best friend had no insurance and had radation and chemo.  The both of them unfortunately didn't help.  My friend is a wonderful person that had stage 4 cancer.  My best friend  was in the hospital three times and went to the Sletten Cancer.  I feel that it is up to you and she passed away a week ago owing lots of many.  The hospital even served her was papers a week before she died.  I thought that was tacky.  Go with your heart and what your husband says.  Because I miss my girlfriend and cancer is a terrible disease that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.  Wheez
