Good afternoon everyone
I was recently diagnose with TNBC 6mm stage 1 , no spread to lymph nodes, grade 3 BRCA 1 positive. So I had switch to perdiem so I can complete my clinical rotation for my Master's program and was receiving health insurance through my school. My plan was to study for the boards and begin working but this gift I didnt ask for came 1 month before graduation. Now im worried because my school health insurance expires in August and I need coverage to help me pay for treatments. Talk about bad timing for all this to happen. I had big plans for after graduation: to get married, start a family;now everything is at a halt. Does any one have advice on where I can get help! I'm feel so depress thinking about this. My mom passed away due to breast cancer and I dont want it to be me.
Thanks guys! And stay strong 💪

I Am Healed,

I'm so sorry you are dealing with all of this at such a young age.  I'm glad they caught it early for you.  Are you under the age of 26?  Is your dad still alive?  If so, can you go on his insurance?  If not, check out the ACA to see if you qualify for enrollment.

Here are some other organizations you may want to contact to see if you can get some advice or assistance.
