I Have A Colon Cancer Question?

Postby Grover » Fri Sep 29, 2017 10:19 am

A friends mother has been diagnosed with colon cancer. She is a person with minimal funds and relies on a state medical card for most of her bills. She is not rich and I need as much info about programs that help with the massive financial burden she will have. I am trying to find as much info about this as she has no computer and I have always gotten great input from here. If you have any info on organizations that may be of help, it would be appreciated. Thank you.

If you live in a City where there is a County Hosptial they usually take patients with no insurance, it's usually a (Charity hospital).
Check with her dr's....does she just need surgery (that's what happened to me with colon cancer). Is she going to need radiation or Chemo? You didn't put too much information down.
Best of luck to you and your mom

She should also discuss directly with her doctor and treatment center. Many will reduce costs. Also, most drug companies have 'indigent patient' programs so she can get drugs for free. Here is a new web site with more information on colon cancer issues

That is going to depend on where she lives because each county and state has their own programs that they offer.

Her best bet would be to ask her oncologist or check with her local hospital or county welfare department.
