  • Need some help

    Hello everyone. Haven't posted on here in a while but it's been very hectic for me. After losing my job (was in the auto industry and got laid off, big surprise) and having to move to where I lived as a kid in North Carolina due to New England being a bit too expensive to live on unemployment. Well, long story short I lost my insurance too, which is my problem. I was supposed to do my last follow up 3 months ago, which makes almost 9 months since my last visit and now with no insurance I'm kind of lost. Plus I'm having other problems that are possibly related to the surgery and carbo so not sure what to do, anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    The first thing I'd try is contacting LIVESTRONG SurvivorCare to get some help with finding a way to continue your follow-up care while you're out of work.
