I was diagnosed with Stage I melanoma when I was 17 and now I'm 22. Since my initial diagnosis 5 years ago, I had a recurrence and had a major surgery in February to remove it from my ankle. During the surgery they found metastasis to one of my lymph nodes putting me at Stage III. After surgery I developed new tumors, one right next to the skin graft and one on my shin. there also some smaller spots. I've been on immunotherapy for 3-4 months now and although my PET scans show that I'm not in Stage IV territory, the immunotherapy doesn't appear to be shrinking my tumors. I feel so sad. I'm having to pay $350 a month to pay for a surgery that didn't cure me. I have to pay for immunotherapy once my deductible is reset for the coming year which is sure to drain me of so much more of my income alongside the $350 towards a debt I won't be able to pay entirely until May 2018. Whenever I talk to people my age about it they never know what to say. How do you cope with full time college, a full time job and cancer treatment simultaneously? How do you deal with financial stress? I'm honestly very on edge a lot of the time. I really want someone I can doing mutual venting with that has similar stressors in their life.
