  1. My aunt was diagnosed with cancer and required a bone marrow transplant. Cancer is not only emotionally draining but also financially.
    HealthWell Foundation is probably the best I have come across.

  2. Thank you for your visit, Josephine! I am glad to hear your aunt got the help she needed. It is so important to provide these services for cancer patients!

  3. I am 53 years old and recently diagnosed with recurrent metastatic ovarian cancer. I was in remission nine years. Last April 2018 i was terminated from my job after 25 years in healthcare due to cognitive impairment with short term memory loss. I am on Social Security Disability. I have to drive almost 300 miles one way to get chemotherapy treatment. I am only insured on a Medicaid spend down of $1,800 a month. Are there any programs available to help me?
