    Hi there. Geekling asked that I get in touch with you because you may want to go to a cancer center that specializes in your type of cancer. I did the same thing when I was diagnosed. I'm not rich by any means and needed to fly from Southern Indiana to Rochester, MN. I found a wonderful organization that arranges flights for cancer patients. They are called Angel Flights. Their web address is http://www.angelflight.com/. They were wonderful people. They found pilots to volunteer their planes, time and fuel to help cancer patients get the care they need. If you need any other travel type info, please let me know. It is a scary and overwhelming time in your life. It helps to lean on people who have been through similar situations.

      If you can calm yourself, it is best not to worry . You can't change anything right now. I had a cone biopsy years ago due to dysplasia. The great news is that they identified it and you can move forward with treatment, if needed. I was diagnosed with a very rare, aggressive cancer of the uterus that likes to spread like wildfire. I found a lump in my back. Of course I worried for a while, but decided the worry was bad for my body. The grapefruit-sized tumor was removed and it was benign. So try not to think the worst. It's really hard on your body. I'll be praying for you.

    Oh No (Money): Disability claim denied. I had a feeling it would be denied on the first go around. Now to find a lawyer to appeal. I'm not sure how much longer I can get by this way.

      There was an article in the newspaper a few years ago that said about 85% of first claims are denied. When picking a lawyer, be sure to get one who does this regularly.

      How is this going? My cousin had to hire a disability claim lawyer, and was successful. Let me know if you want the referral information.
