      First If your American Cancer Center can't help you, I would go online and look up organizations that help those who have terminal cancer, just type in organizations that help those with terminal cancer and you will find help, also look in your phone book under Community Resources and you might be able to find more resources, on your meds, sometimes the med company may help those who can't afford their products. In regards to your kids, no matter how young they are they need to be told about your situation and be very honest with them they can take it and if you need help there are books at most libraries on how to talk to children about cancer. If you have other questions email me, I use to be a nurse so I can offer more help if you still having trouble.

      If you still haven't found help thru the American Cancer Society you can go online and type in organizations help with those who have terminal cancer and you should find lots of resources. With your medications most drug companies will help those who can't pay for their medications if not go back online and type in help with paying for medications and you should get a list. With your kids no matter how young they are you need to tell them whats going on and tell them the whole truth if you don't know what to say you can find books on the subject at your library, but you have to tell them and they will get it and understand why you can't buy certain things(but there are organizations that will help buy christmas toys or birthday stuff or clothes, school supplies etc... I hope this helps but if you still have questions email me and I will try and help as much as I can, I use to be a nurse until my cancer got worse and I no longer can work and with the "leaving your kids soon" isn't necessary right because I wasn't suppose to live past 25 and I will be 49 in a couple of weeks so don't give up until your last breath.

      Now is the time to find out where you sign up for toys for tots or other community resources for holiday meals or toys for your children as its in November when you actually sign up. You don't want to wait for the last minute. Look online or check with the social worker at your hospital to find out what's available in your area. I will keep y'all in my prayers and remember God knows what you need and will provide :-)
