I have Stage III HER2-pos Breast Cancer. I have Medicare, it pays 80%. Is there not good doctors and treatment for people who don't have secondary ins. or cash growing in the backyard?

    The American Cancer Society has a lot of great information concerning financial matters, support, and so much more. There are offices in most major cities, or you can reach them on their website which includes a toll-free number. Best wishes to you Bettyann on your journey.

    If a diagnosis of breast cancer isn't already lousy.... then you have to worry about how you are going to pay for the treatment. We had catastrophic coverage because the insurance premiums were so expensive. My husband and I had to buy our own coverage. The premiums were high and so were the deductable. Diana is giving you a great suggestion. Contact the American Cancer Society. They gave us a gas card so we could get to my appointments. They also had other programs and suggestions to help you out. If you run into expensive prescriptions you can't afford, I found if you contact the drug manufacturers, they sometimes have programs for low cost drugs or free. That was a huge help when I needed a special drug to combat nausea. Our community also had a benefit dinner and auction for us when I was diagnosed.... what a huge blessing that was!!!

    Funny u mentioned it. I had my lumpectomy in Argentina where my husband is from because I didn't have insurance or money tree in my yard. I just came back last week in hopes to find oncologist to help me with chemo treatment cause I have her2 positive if all else fails I might have to go back to Argentina to begin chemo treatments !!! It only cost me to do 9 tests from cat scan to sonogram to bone scan , and lumpectomy surgery all total cost me is $2900, yes as in twenty nine hundred dollars!!! Unreal!!!! Not only that, they all treated me so wonderfully !!! These doctors are original people not after my money like here do!
