Financial Resources

My best friend is 23 and she was recently diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer. We've checked out the grants and financial aid page on StupidCancer, but can you guys tell me about any financial resources that you've actually pursued and have been helpful to you??

    Hi Tabatha,

    Your friend and I were on the same boat. I didn't have enough time to pursue any of the financial resources I looked into, so I ended up taking out a loan through my bank, maxing out my credit card, and draining my savings.

    As far as a financial resource that actually seemed attainable, the Livestrong Foundation looked promising. I also got help through Walgreens Heartbeat Program to cover some costs of prescription medication for my fertility preservation (if she goes that route).

    Sorry I couldn't offer more. And btw, you're an awesome friend for helping out like this.
