    Well, I applied for Social Security Disability Insurance and was fully prepared to be denied and I was approved!! I can’t believe it. I have heard horror stories of people having to appeal multiple times and obtain an Attorney. I applied about 1 month ago and just received my email this morning. It says I became disabled in July 2019 which is when I was diagnosed originally. Sounds like I will get a check next month and if I’m reading it correctly back pay to January 2020? I’m just excited I will get almost the same as my monthly amount would be if I we’re at full retirement age. I’m cu

  2. Hey Everyone, So Fed gov't apparently passed a new law where healthcare providers now must share the test results with the patient at the same time they send it to the ordering physician. MyChart (online patient portal) had this link - I haven't read it cuz all matters to me is now I get the result even faster. According to the little blurb on MyChart, this law went into effect on 10/25/20 and I've gotten all (CT, PET, blood work, but NOT mammo, hmmm) super fast. The CT tech said the doc *could* block it, though, so there's that... MB

    Glad to hear you're doing so well, Patrick! I'm a big believer that the better shape you're in otherwise when you're diagnosed, the better. It may not necessarily make you more cancer-resistant, but it sure helps you bounce back from/withstand the treatments. Keep on keepin' on!

    Terrific news! Yup, I was diagnosed in July 2020, so no back pay for me and I won't get check until Feb (for Jan 2021). From everything I've seen/heard, Stage IV is automatic approval and it happens fast (though there's still the 5-month waiting period at the front end). Congrats--it will be nice to get that big check before the holidays!
