I was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma at the base of my tongue. Unfortunately, I did not qualify for government disability during radiation and chemo, but later after surgery I did qualify - it was a life-saver (no pun intended).

My son had some lumps removed and the turned out malignant. In order to find the source, they removed his tonsils and found the cancer. Things are moving pretty fast now, he will get the feeding tube put in tomorrow. He is still able to work some but since he has to have the radiation and chemo, he anticipates losing his income. He will still have rent, food, etc. Anybody have any ideas about resources
