It may take 30 days to get them to look at my case. There is no priority based on my prognosis.
I'm sorry your insurance company is being an ass, I see that time and time again.

Insurance companies have to make things so difficult. I hope they work this out for you quickly.

They denied me again, so we changed insurance companies. Let us hope this works. Three months without any treatment.

I am praying for you and your situation. I was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer back in April so I understand what you are going through. There really is no rule book for what we are going through. So far it's just been one day at a time for me and my family. Hope to hear some good news on your end very soon.

I took my first chemo pill today.

I have been to MD Anderson in July to get that all set up. Thankful things are working out now.

Thanks for all the support.
