    Breast Reconstruction

    Presently I do not have the money to have a beast reconstruction, even though I has almost been five years, it would be nice to have my breast back and feel completely normal again. Is there any association that could do this procedure without having to pay?

      you might check with your local cancer treatment center and/or the local office of the american cancer society...you might also work with a social worker from the local cancer center re your resources and where in your community you can go for help with this expense. if you have insurance, but it will not cover the entire expense, you should also check with the surgeon's office re how to pay the cost that insurance will not cover...i am an ex-social worker and my job was helping people find resources...also, make sure your surgeon has definitely diagnosed your need for this surgery so that it will be regarded as a medical condition that requires a specific treatment for your health...diagnoses that are on record are very essential to help you get what you need.
