I was diagnosed with MBC August 2023 after I had a chest tube placed and biopsy was done. I was devastated and felt like I had been a death sentence. I was started on treatment and that one didn’t work so it was changed. The new treatment is working better per the oncologist.
I have since retired and have been as active as I can be with exercising and working in my garden. Both of those things help me get into my happy place. I have a great support system with family and friends. The only thing i haven’t found is a support group where I can share my feelings--things I don’t want to share with the others as they might not understand and that is why I feel like I am treading water.
This is my story.
Have you been successful in getting financial assistance to help with your medical costs?
