Default Cancer-and the bills!

My mom is battling Lung Cancer along with other major medical problems at home. She cannot afford to pay these people and is still taking chemo and more tests. She called today, doesn't know what to do and lives in KY., where and who will pay her bills. She has no real income, and is stressed out enough over this and battling with the fact that she needs to beat this terrible life threatening cancer!!! Does anyone know who will help pay such bills? What to do?

Get in touch with the local welfare / social services office, they can help with food and utilities, and Apply for a medicaid card.
For drugs, check out ,http://www.rxassist.org/, these companies will mail you the medications after your dr faxes them the form. also check out,
www. cancercare.org ($125 )

The jennifer Ireland Foundation gave us $1,000 toward medical bills.
www.21stCenturyCare.org ($50 gas card)
contact the American cancer society and get a PATIENT ADVOCATE.
Go to a catholic hospital, or if not, contact the billing parties and ask them for a hardship waiver, you'll have to fill out the forms and its a pain, but we've had over $20 thousand written off to date
