I was recently diagnosed with stage IIIa male breast cancer with and could use some help with my co-pay and co-insurance costs for treatment

I am a 49 year old male that was diagnosed on May 11, 2011 with male breast cancer. It was originally diagnosed as invasive ductal carcinoma that hadn't spread based on the core biopsy and the fine needle aspiration of the two suspect lymph nodes. I had a modified radical mastectomy with a sentinel node biopsy followed by the start of some plastic surgery with my own tissue to fill in the are with my own tissue. The sentinel node showed that 7 of 14 lymph nodes were impacted and I was diagnosed as stage 3a.

On Thursday, July 19, 2012 I had my first round of chemotherapy. Chemo kicked my butt. They give me a shot of Nuclasta on Friday the 20th which super charges the white blood cell formation in the bone marrow. This give a person wicked bone pain throughout the body.

Even though I have a cap on my out of pocket expenses for the major medical and lab work. The co-insurance and the medication co-pays are costing me a fortune and I can't pay them at the moment and maintain my home. I'm hoping that even if each of you send a small donation...it will all add up and help me pay my medical expenses and take some pressure off on the rest of the budget; freeing up some money so the mortgage and utilities can be paid. The billed claims without the primary surgeons fees and without the medical and radiation oncology are already up to over $64,000 for just the past two and a half months or so. Thankfully I have insurance but as I noted. It is not covering everything.

Please try to help if you are able to do so.
