In October of 2012, I moved to Tucson with my son, my husband , my daughter and her husband, already lived here... I was preparing to make my last years my very best years.. I am a retired Nurse,, an advocate for ''what is right for all living things., A voice for those who have no voice or are seldom heard, the starving children of the world....I had a Physical in September2012, I was in good shape and my condition was stable as to my ailments of Blood pressure, CAD etc. I was feeling great! During the Christmas Holidays here in Tucson, I noticed a ''somewhat balooning mass over my left breast toward my left underarm... I called my Primary Care Doctor,who I had just retained here in Tucson..She assured me there was no lump detected when she examined me in late oct/November 2012..I was already scheduled for a revision of my spinal cord stimulator ,which I had had in for years for pain from a an automobile accident.. I thought it prudent to notify my Neurosurgeon and my primary care physcian of the mass...A Digitalized Mammogram was ordered, a few days later a biopsy was done..I had Cancer! I continued with my scheduled back surgery, and then address the ''lump'' in my breast,,, I had one rather large area removed, and a gland from under ny arm...Pathology revealed a few days later, that it was necesssary to go back in, that there was still cancer cells.. I did a second surgery on the same area of the Left Breast. A few weeks later(just last week ,actually) Iwas Cancer free in my left breast with no reason to believe there was metastises elsewhere. NOW, I find The treatment necessary will be some form of chemo and radiation therapy...all of that is in the planning stage..My Surgeon told me, ''It will come back if you don't follow up with treatment... THAT is where I am today...I have Medicare ONLY, and the co-pays and other related expenses for two different Hospitals here have become a real strain on my children here'finances...I am a young 68 yo with a husband who is a Stroke and colon cancer survivor of 5 years... Our funds are drained....I cannot afford the therapy...so..do I die or does someone care enough to help.....
