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 50 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 continues to kick my butt, but I am going to kick cancers butt.

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 am having difficulty keeping up with co-pays and and monthly bills.

I've had issues with infections at the incision line and other areas of skin. I've been on antibiotics and trying to ward off infections. I am averaging about 1 to 2 doctor visits each week for one thing or another.

If you can help at all it would be greatly appreciated.
