      This isn't something I know first hand about, but I would start putting in application for medic aide or what ever its called in your state. Its the insurance state aide and if you have cancer they will usually kinda fast track it in. My daughter in laws uncle had cancer and that's what they did because he had no insurance. Check with the social worker at the hospital on where you go to apply, also they should be able to tell you where to contact the different cancer orgs that might help. Hope this helps some. Good luck on your journey

      Do you have any government hospitals near you? There is one in Dallas called Parkland and they offer government insurance to people who qualify. I am currently in nursing school as well and thats how i was able to get insurance coverage. I believe all government hospitals offer this insurance. Do some searching in your area and contact them. My surgery was completely covered as well as chemo , meds, etc.

      I didn't have insurance when I was diagnosed because I was in my last year of my college degree. I got signed up with medicaid and went to MD Anderson here in Houston, Texas with no probelms at all! It was oddly easy! Good luck!
