      Medi caid. It's a federally funded program and if you apply and let them know you need chemo, they will accomodate you almost immediately. I got mine within 3 days.

      I think there were some great resources listed in the previous answers. A non for profit community hospital treats anyone diagnosed with cancer. They may require some money upfront until some other resources come in but in general patients are not turned away. I am sure you have began the process of medicaid/Social Security Disability Insurance/Social Security Supplemental Income. A social worker can assist you with the beginning process of all of these forms. The oncology dept where the chemotherapy is being given can assist with "Patient Assistance Programs" to find what programs you loved one qualifies for, that can assist anywhere from pain meds, pre chemo antiemetics and the chemo itself. Keep asking those who are in charge of you brother care where you can get a start and eventually someone or many someones should be able to give you insight and contact information to expedite this process. You brother is so very lucky to have you in his corner.
