    Hello every one. I don't usually ask for help on social media websites but I need some help or advice. Last Oct.30th my husband found out he has stage 4 colon cancer that has spread to his liver and to one of his lungs. We don't have insurance and he is the only one working. I am looking for a job and filling out job applications. He was able to get part of his chemo drugs for free, but he needs the IV drip but that will be at a hospital, that costs 600.00 dollars a month and it is hard to pay for that right now. He has been denied SSI and medicaid. I have no idea what to do or where to go now. This has really been confusing and hard. If any one has any ideas on what to do to get my husband started his chemo it is would be very much appreciated. I don't usually ask for help but this is a very hard time for us and not sure what to do. Thank you all for reading this. :)
