      Hi Simpson,
      Have you tried talking with your healthcare institution about your bills? In some cituations, hospitals will allow you to set up a payment plan to pay those expensive bills in smaller increments. Some hospitals will even write it off, depending on how dire the situation. It never hurts to inquire, just to see what your options are.
      Let us know how it goes,

      if they are medical bills talk to the doctors/hospitals and see what they can do to help...if they are daily livig bills due to cancer treatments contact the ACS in your community to see if there are any organizations that can help,...or a patient navigator at your hospital...where I live there are a few supports for people in Tx that we have listed in a BC directory that is published every year....

      Hi Simpson, You can contact Cancer Care. They offer financial assistance for Cancer patients. You can call them and they'll send you an application-it's income-based. Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
