Shelleym Posted July 27, 2004 Share Posted July 27, 2004 Hi all. My mother was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer last week and I am truly in need of support! Her oncologist wants to start her on chemotherapy right away, but she wants to do it on an outpatient basis. The chemo schedule is 3x/week every 3 weeks over 18 weeks total. She lives by herself, but I don't know how much longer she will be able to do that. Oh, and she lives in another state with no relatives nearby. HELP! I want to help my mom, but at this point I just don't know what to do. She is 69, has smoked more than 50 years (but quit during her hospital stay, thank goodness), and her only insurance is Medicare. Today her case worker notified me that she is ineligible for Medicaid, so now I don't know what we're going to do about her treatment and living arrangements.
