    Just and fyi I heard on news today hosp are starting to pay peoples premiums for them instead of letting them become

    uninsured. It is cheaper for them to pay out $500.00 a month on a person than 1,000 & $1,000 each month they come into E.R. uninsured not sure about all the details but before my insurance runs out I would talk to my social worker about it. Remember I live in Mich so it may be different elsewhere? Lets hope not. Have been through no insurance with hubby for years and I was disabled before the cancer so I couldn't get a job with insurance either. Anyways good luck its worth a shot.

      It didn't say it was just in Mich worth looking into. Also if you don't mind accepting an email when I get over this little chemo hump just had it today I do have some resources I can send you or if you have a fax mach I can fax them to you. I also found alot of info in the Lance Armstrong books if you go to his livestrong web site sign up and they will mail you the books for free and there is alot of info and help in them also. I know how you are feeling like lost in the shuffle again. Plus make sure you check with the hospt about that before your insurance plan runs out. Good Luck
