    PLEASE LOOK FOR MY SECOND POSTING... I FOUND THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT IN YOUR TOWN THAT WILL DO BREAST SCREENINGS (MAMMOGRAMS) ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBERS INCLUDED. Sharon Roberta, My other "Sisters" here have given you good advice about where to check for care. Right now, what you need is a mammogram. I would also check with the closest American Cancer Society, Planned Parenthood, Susan G. Komen.Org. The latter two, generally have funding for free mammograms. October, is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You have proven in spite of so many tough breaks in your life to be one stong cookie and a complete and total survivor. I wouldn't go pushing the breast cancer panic button. So many times, these can turn out to be nothing more than a scary time! Please start checking these places TOMORROW! I want you to get in to have a mammogram somewhere asap. We care about what you are going through right now. PLEASE keep in touch with us. We will help and support you as much as we can out here. Take care and God's blessings, Sharon

    I did not have insurance or a job when I was dx in Jan. my hubby lost his job three weeks later so I applies for Catastrophic Care thru the hospital and they wrote off my first surgery bill and then I applied for Medicaid and got it for the second one and my rads. Just talk to EVERYBODY because they will help you. Prayers for you.

    Check on cancer.com , breastcancer.com and also with any hospital near you. The hospitals are equipped with people who can point you in the right direction . Ask to talk to a social worker or patient rep. In the mean time try stay calm about the lump. You don't know what it is yet so one day at a time. Please let us know how you are doing. Hugs and prayers
