      Big question here is has she had cancer? If she hasn't had cancer the American Cancer Association and LIVESTRONG may be out. However some of the more specific women's health groups may be more willing to help. My next question is why has she had so many tests done. How old is she. The colonoscopy is a costly test that is only recommended every five years, unless there is something otherwise suspicious, Another thing how close is she to reaching her deductible. It seems to me that if she has had all these tests that she should be really close to that deductible even to the point that they might pay for part of the ultra-sound. I assume that she has already talked with the group who will be doing the imaging about monthly payments.
      My congregation raised $40,000 for a young man to go out of state for a clinical trial. If she is a member perhaps she can get help from her church.

      I do understand the cost, but don't put off the ultra sound too long. I had a suspicious spot that turned out to be precancerous. I did pay part of my bill in a few payments.

      I know it's rough, but it has to happen. Get that test done and go on payment plans. We had to do that for both my cancer and my son's accident. Send $25 a month until it's paid for. She can ask the center for discounts and other things, like financial aid, if they quality. And if it is cancer, they will be paying that $3,000 very quickly. All these doctors, surgeons, and other people will be on payment plans too. We need better healthcare in this country. We shouldn't have to make a choice of a doctor appointment or food on the table.
