      Had similar thing. Was laid one year before diagnosis..on Cobra, with about 6 months to go and looking at the next year of treatment. No way to get my own insurance at that point. The Social Worker at our hospital told me of a state program for Breast and Cervical Cancers. It was Medicaid for a year and now they have me on United Health Care Community. Depends on the state of course, but the Social workers have heard and handle this before. Best of luck and hugs to you

      Wanted to see how you are doing and how your appointment went with the surgeon?

      I met with a surgeon Friday 29. 2 hours! painted every scenario which was good. but... no decisions can be made until I get an MRI. The decision in treatment depends on so many factors! The MRI will show intricate cancer cells and traces. Is it effecting the left breast? Has it spread into the chest cavity? Any more in the right breast? Learned about radiation, chemotherapy, lymph nodes! MRI is tomorrow. Desert Cancer Foundation is paying for this in full. I emailed them with my dilema and was answered promptly. I met with county health system today and am covered for alot with reduced cost but need to use their doctors, hospital choice, etc.. that's ok with me but the process is starting all over cause I have to see an ob gyn of theirs tomorrow then he will refer to surgeon, then he will refer to oncologist etc... time consuming! I have all of my films with me to save time. and hopefully will have fast results with MRI.
