    Oh No (Money): Hello every one. I don't usually ask for help on social media websites but I need some help or advice.
    Last Oct.30th my husband found out he has stage 4 colon cancer that has spread to his liver and to one of his lungs.
    We don't have insurance and he is the only one working. I am looking for a job and filling out job applications.
    He was able to get part of his chemo drugs for free, but he needs the IV drip but that will be at a hospital, that costs 600.00 dollars a month and it is hard to pay for that right now.
    He has been denied SSI and medicaid.
    I have no idea what to do or where to go now. This has really been confusing and hard.
    If any one has any ideas on what to do to get my husband started his chemo it is would be very much appreciated.
    I don't usually ask for help but this is a very hard time for us and not sure what to do. Thank you all for reading this. :)

      Hi Photon, sometimes it takes a little bit to get the hang of using the site. Let me give you a couple tips. this is a great question and lots of people will be able to help you. First, you posted it as an experience in your cancer journey, an experience is sort of like a stop along the way during your cancer experience. While people will see it if they come to your page and look around, the "general public" of the site won't see it.

      If you will please repost this as a question, by clicking on the questions tab at the top of the page, then fill in the information in the boxes that you see there. Everyone on the site will see what you post and be able to offer lots of help.

      If you need help let me know.

    Thank you. :)
    I think I did some thing wrong. My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and I came here looking for some support.
    I am a spouse but some times I care for him, did I come to the wrong place?
    Thank you.

      You are absolutely in the right place!! We have quite a few Caregivers on here for the same reason you're here. Us cancer patients appreciate you Caregivers more than you know. It takes a special someone to care for a cancer patient. I think sometimes this whole process is harder on the Caregiver than it is on the patient. At the top of your page you will see a "questions" tab. That's the best place to post questions or concerns you may have. The entire community will see it and will provide you with lots of feedback. Thanks for being a Caregiver and again, Welcome to WhatNext!!
