I have Breast Cancer and have been out of work since 5/25/2018 recovering from a double mastectomy. ($7920 in just out of pocket medical expenses, this does not include lost wages)
I just found out 7/6/2018 three days before I was supposed to return to work that I will need to have chemo; 4 rounds 3 weeks apart for a total of 12 weeks.
We are unsure how much treatment will cost but I know that we are looking at approximately $18,000-20,000 in out of pocket expenses and 16+ weeks of lost wages at the end of it all.
Due to the nature of my job, my Oncologist has stated that I CANNOT work during this time.
