In September of 2015, I was diagnosed with Metastatic breast cancer. My insurance pays for a lot of my medication. However, because I am a retired Texas educator at least two times a year when I have not met my deductible the co-pay is very expensive for my xgeiva injection. I am seeking assistance for my prescription medication. Wanda Stephens

I was diagnosed with stage 4 Breast cancer with bone mets over 3 years ago, I am starting to work less and less, our water Bill got turned off this week, we managed to get it turned back on, it cost us over 300 which we could not spare to pay the full amount. I have spoken to an attorney months ago, They cannot help me, I have to quit my job, but in order to survive, I have to have treatment monthly, there was no guarantee of how long the process can take, there for, making it not possible to "just" quit, I am on FMLA, so secure my insurance, which half I have to pay. It has gotten to the point, I am working 40 hours a two week period, maybe sometimes a few more, and sometimes a little less, I do not get paid for any time off, Sometimes we cannot buy food, electric, water, I find it unbelievable that some one with stage 4 cancer with bone mets cannot get help, and those who are on welfare get everything they need. My husband makes 3,000 a month! that is nothing, I cannot get on his insurance because the deductible is 6,700.. Our rent is 1070.00. We have a car payment of 467.00, I was paying that with my job, but with me hardly working, just another thing that is overwhelming us, I cannot help I have cancer, I am not lazy, never have been, I also struggle with depression, and take medication for that... I do not know what to do, the stress certainly does not help my health.. I pray somehow we can get a little help.. Sincerely, Terri Pierceall
