    Health insurance issue

    Oh No

    I was diagnoised a week before my insurance sign up at work, So I had no insurance. I was enrolled in a womens program that funded free mammagrams for women who qualified(which was me) These programs are through out the united states under various names. Part of a foundation that help fund this program was the Susan G. Komen. Medical was taken care of but not my every day expences, so I had to work during my chemo. thus keeping track of various things as medication, appointments, and found other organizations that help get me through.
