      My first year diagnosed with non small cell lung cancer, Stage IV, I was on Avastin, Alimta and Carpilatin, every 3 weeks for one year. The first treatment did make me nauseous but Zofran helped with that. The only side effect I had was mouth sores, which also was treatable. The treatments got much easier after that. After a year, I was put on Opdivo, an immunotherapy drug, every 2 weeks.

      My first chemo round was cisplatin and Alimta, once per month for four months.
      My biggest concern was hearing loss. You will not lose hair.
      For me, I had no adverse side effects during that time however, two years later I developed a constant high pitched sound in both ears which is permanent.

      There is a website called NeedyMeds at www.needymeds.org. On the home page go to patient savings and drop-down headings will appear. Go to diagnosis specific and then search by diagnosis. Select the letter C and then select cancers. Up will pop all national organizations in alphabetical order first and will list what services they offer. Many offer financial assistance. Then scroll past the national ones and down to your state and see what is offered there. Best of luck to you.

      In addition to checking the website Carm recommended, you could call your doctor's office or clinic/hospital and ask if they have a Social Worker or Financial Counselor available for their patients.

      The American Cancer Society 800 phone number can also discuss financial resources. Best wishes to you!
