Michele, 46, mother of two young boys has breast cancer. It's already reached the lymph nodes. No coverage to pay 4 cancer treatments!

    Michele is 46 years old & has just been diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. It has already reached her lymph nodes. Michele has 2 boys, 10 yrs. &  11 yrs. of age.  Her doctor has told her that the cancer is moving very quickly and she must begin chemotherapy ASAP at a cost of over $7,000 per session.  The cost for just the chemotherapy treatments will be over  $50,000.  According to her oncologist, Michele  will need 8 rounds of chemo.  The problem is that Michele is "under insured". She has no coverage for any cancer treatments or for any major medical.   The out of pocket costs for all her required treatments is shocking! All the doctors want the money up front before she can even begin any treatments.  Her treatment path is as follows: STEP 1. She needs to begin chemo ASAP to (a) stop the growths from spreading any further;( b) reduce the size of tumors.  STEP 2: Surgery, once the tumors are reduced.  STEP 3: Radiation to follow the surgery.  STEP 4:  Medication.  This is a huge financial challenge for her & her family with estimated costs reaching $100,000.00 very quickly.   She's not eligible for PCIP due to the time frame in which she needs to be treated.  PCIP states that one must be completely without insurance for at least 6 months AND HER VERY SIMPLE INSURANCE ONLY COVERS DOCTOR VISITS, UP TO $100/DAY.  On the basis of this simplified health insurance plan, she is being denied assistance from ALL foundations who assist cancer victims.  It's simply outragious!!  She doesn't have 6 months to wait for treatment!  She needs immediate assistance!  PLEASE donate to this very serious cause and help to save her LIFE!   THANK YOU AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES!   :-)
