    Health insurance issue

    Oh No

    Helping my sister who has Stage IIA Breast Cancer. Her insurance is terrible! Very poor coverage. Looking at having $36K out of pocket for this year and next! Have received assistance from chemo drug company and from the (not sure what it is called) white blood cell booster drug company for those costs, but overall, very overwhelming. Before her first treatment, with diagnosis only, the doctors and hospital have already billed over $55K.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Chemo started December 4, 2013. One week later, she has joint pain and nausea, but has not yet vomited. Very tired. Trying to work through the treatments.
