This is the Ann Whitten Colon Cancer Fund. These funds will be used to pay expenses not covered by Insurance

My friend is Ann Whitten, She was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in October 2010. She had surgery in 2011 that removed her transverse colon. She also had 11 chemotherapy treatments. Her immuine system could not handle the complete regime. Her insurance company United Health Care left her owing more than 9000.00 in co-pays and out of pocket expenses. She has a 25/75 plan with a 1600.00 deductible and a 8200.00 out of pocket expenses. Several of her doctors are refusing to see her in their office because she owes them so much money. Cancer patients must have test once per year to see if the cancer has spread. Since she owes her doctors money, She is having problems getting these test. Her specialists are now asking for the co-pays upfront, which she cannot pay at this time. Any help she could receive would be greatly appreciated. There is a lot of help available for breast cancer patients, but very little for colon cancer patients. God bless anyone who can help.
