    Relationship issues

    Oh No

    Why doesn't he go to the doctor? This has been going on for 9 months! Why is he calling me selfish when I want him to get better so that we can move forward with our life dreams? Why is he pulling away from me? I only want the best for him/us!

    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    How do I juggle a business, grandchild, a house that is very uncomfortable, a sick spouse, finances, the feeling of being alone and a potential loss of our dreams?

    Money

    Oh No

    Have had health insurance since the 70's and the one year in my life with no insurance and look what has happened. Am in the middle income too many assets to qualify for some programs. Could loose everything we own if this and the business is not handled correctly!

    Where to go for treatment, where to find a competant doctor

    Decision Point

    Cancer, first thought is MD Anderson, which is a long way from my business and my life. Expenses. What do we do? How do we know that we have a good doctor? Are we making the right decision on how to proceed?
