    Thank you for your email, the only one I have gotten. I hope you do get well. I have tried every resource and I get no where, I really just do not think anyone cares anymore about other people.
    Please get well!

    I have witnessed several non profit organizations which claim for many years of how they offer and provide financial assistance to those in need and have collected countless thousands to millions of dollars in State, Federal and Private donations and grants but have in FACT, continued to keep the money, providing little to nothing to those in desparate need both of money and medical. They tend to refer an applicant to other agencies who in turn refer the applicant to yet another and the entire thing goes in a circle over and over again. The money actually goes to the non profit personell and they usually reside in the best of houses. Often they have a brand new building costing millions simply because they want it to work in and to spend the money . There is no help! Even the Salvation Army will provide maybe $25 . They use the title of a non-profit business to their own personal private financial gain and nothing more. This is the reason there is no help for anyone in need.

    You are correct, Candace.

    The situation is corrupt at it’s core, and there are many examples out there if you chose to do any research at all. This site was originally created by Tonya Sue Carther, with my help and support. She wrote articles while dealing with her own cancer, and was taking action as best that she could at the time, which was to look at the world and resources available to her with hope and optimism.

    Many of the articles on this site were written by her, and are either links that have expired, to services that no longer exist. I have been so busy that I have not been able to really go in and vet every past article and link, and as a results, over the years since her untimely death, the comments left by people in needs and searching for help have created a self perpetuating cycle in ‘organic search’ (Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc)

    Michelle, someone I met through this site volunteered to help clean up the site, but in the end, the job was just too large, and it would have involved deleting many of the comments on the site. So we went ahead and she has created a new site, with finacial services that she has either personally used and/or vetted. The site is called Cancer Resource Mama and here is the link.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment,

    I was diagnosed in April, 2013 with Stage 4 small cell lung cancer. I have been bombarded with multiple medical bills that were not covered by insurance for one reason or another. Many of our “normal” monthly expenses are falling behind. I have been looking up grants to possibly give us some help but have not had much luck, besides I am tired from not only the chemo drugs (which has given me an inflamed bowel) but a few months ago I was also diagnosed with having Lyme Disease. Can you give me any guidance in getting help with any of this? It would be so greatly appreciated! Thank You

    I need some sort of monetary help at this time. I was diagnosed in April, 2013 with stage 4 small cell lung cancer. I am getting chemo treatments as my platelet level allows. I am not able to work outside of the home. My medical bills are mounting higher every week. With my husband’s pay from his work I am having a very hard time paying even our monthly household bills. We also owe back property taxes which we usually pay a little late with our income tax refund. Couldn’t do it this year because of IRS penalties on the closing of my husband’s retirement funds. Our broker never returned our phone calls and no one informed us of any penalties for this. We closed them out to pay back bills which came off my husband’s pay check via garnishment, which made it even harder to pay our normal living expenses. My Husband was off work on disability due to having more than 8 surgeries for about 3 and a half years. We have tried to refinance our house and other vacant property at a lower rate. Our payments could have gone down over $100.oo a month but was denied because of the back bills that went to credit collection. Is there anyone legit that could or would be willing to help us get past this. I can only do so much at this time and could use any help I can get, including donations or fundraisers to help us get out of this mess. We would be very willing to relocate to our now vacant property if we could get help (ideally volunteer help) that would be great. However, it would also be great if someone could steer us in the correct direction for getting grants and volunteer help. Right now we have alot of fighting in our lives but are unable do it on our own with my husband’s pay and our credit scores. If you or anyone has ideas or would be willing to help us out with this PLEASE contact me thru my email, please put grant or volunteer help in the subject line. Thank You for hearing me out!

    My daughter has stage 4 breast cancer. she had to quit work. We found out that there is a program with SSDI that if you qualify, you can gert benefits sooner. It is called the “Compassionate Assistance Program. When you apply for SSDI, make sure you find out if you qualify for this. It is a six months wait if you do no qualify.

    In 2010 the love of my life lost his mother to Multiple Myloma. 2 weeks after we buried her he was diagnosed with Stage 3 Lung Cancer. He had a full Pnuemectomy of the right lung and only has his left lung which is filled with COPD. He will be on Oxygen for the rest of his life, he also lost complete vision of the right eye due to Gluacoma & Catarac because it was to dandergous for him to go thru any surgeries. I have been with this man for 21years as of this monday. My Fiance Michael has been a very strong man and I hate having to see him go thru this. With the grace of GOD he is in Total Remission but will never be 100% but we were in danger of losing our home that we fought racist people in the beginning and here it is 16 years later the racist and internet bullying has started again but now our home is falling apart and we can’t seem to get any help. I am not looking for sympathy or a hand-out just a point in the right direction because every where i have tried is getting me nowhere. I have been doing everything all by myself and i don’t ask for anything and i will always land on my feet but with my own physical illnesses i am doing as much as i can. It has been over 20 years and i am finally begging for any kind of help. Thank you

    Dear Admin,

    Thanks so much for creating this site! I have breast cancer stage 4 (estrogen receptive) and am would like to find a grant to pay for an illustrator for a graphic memoir I am writing. I am a fairly accomplished poet, having written a best-seller in 2009, but know very little about how to make this book happen. Any idea where I might apply for grant. Best wishes, and peace to us all. Kathy

    I left out the part about her having stage IV breast cancer and she is undergoing chemotherapy and needs more surgery.

  26. lisa July 10, 2014 at 8:08 am #

    Lord, I am in the same boat at 51 years old and scared to death but know I cant afford to die right now. 2 weeks ago found out my mom had it then I started swelling up and had to go to ER and found I had a very large mass in chest that was wrapped around my main vein and was pressing on heart and surgery was not an option..I have had 3 days of chemo so far. Now, as for financial part I don’t have a clue what to do or where to turn. I left hospital yesterday and no one gave me any guidance at all and I don’t know just know as for working that is not an option but still have bills and no way of paying them. My son had heart attack last year at 33 and the last thing in my life after the death of their dad when they were small was to ever have my kids worry about me and look at this. Due to economy last few yrs let life ins lapse. Well, anyone with any advice please let me know and I have never been anyone to ask anyone for anything but now guess I have no choice but to try and do something. What? I don’t know.
    Any advice will be appreciated. Also scared they are fixing to tell me I have co pymts for all of the radiation and chemo and I don’t have a clue as to how I will pay this.

    I have had ovarian cancer twice since 2008 and just had major spinal surgery. There is a business in my neighborhood that gives free service (cosmetic/lazer, etc.) for only breast cancer patients. Do you know of grants available for ovarian cancer survivors for this type treatment or any type of treatment. I have lots of brown spots and uneven skin that I have tried lots of things over the counter and can no longer do that because of lots of medical bills. I was put in remission in Novembe4r 2014 and now am trying to recover from the major spinal surgery but still cannot walk good. My follow up visit is on June 17th. I just feel so depressed as having cancer has caused a aging process that I was not ready for. My sight has worsened. Last time I had glasses changed was in 2012. Had cataract surgery on both eyes just before. Insurance does not pay for progressive lens glasses and at that time my glasses cost me $521.00.

I feel terrible cause she’s living in fear and I want to give her a surprise cruise, and a great memory that will last forever with her and i. If there is anyone out there willing to help grant her the wish of going on a cruise, or even just a amazing vacation. Or if you known of a website or a sweepsteaks I could enter her in please let me known. Like I said my nRaytowncMissouriomas Carter I am 26 and I wish, and pray for everyone out there surviving cancer, battling cancer to keep pushing and stay strong, the lord loves us all, and you are all in my prayers 🙂 my phone number is 816 745 0924 I live in Raytown Missouri and my address is 7813 crescent avenue raytown mo 64138. If there is anyone out there willing to hell, or have any information on how I can accomplish this for my mother please contact me. God bless all of you. I love all of you!!!
