I have cancer and can't get any financial help!?
I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer last year and am still undergoing treatment.
I have three young children and my partner works full time. I can't get a job, I'm not entitled to incapacity benefit (not enough NI contributions). we struggle to manage and would be working if i could.
Anywhere else i can turn?
Sadly I think not...my Aunt was very ill with Cancer last year and as a single parent there was hardly any help available to her...she had to manage alone and is now in debt...speak to your citizens advice though incase families get some help in your area..
when you find out please let me know. i recently came off of cobra insurance because i was only allowed to carry my insurance 18 mts., since my husband and i both have medical problems. we had to try to pay bills and pay the high price of cobra insurance. now that it is gone i have had my Dr visits cut back, blood work and ct scans that i normally get every 2 months. neither my husband or i qualify for medicare or medicaid. i will in 12 more months. that is if we don't make too much money through disability and my husbands social security. they don't take into consideration that we have meds to pay for and Dr. visits to pay for and the responsibility of bill that were acquired before i came down with cancer. what is a person suppose to do. i guess they just don't care. sorry, i hope your situation gets better. sounds as if you are alot younger than i. i just turned 49 and my husband is 62. in the US you have to almost be living in a card board box to get help. then again maybe that's what they want.
I do feel sorry for you.....especially when you hear of others receiving benefits fraudulently...check out this link...and best of luck
Why are you not entitled to Incapacity benefit? There must be some other help available, Good luck anyway..
MacMillan cancer relief would be my first thought. The link below is for their financial help.
Little Big Boy
this country pisses me off, we give all the money away to imigrants and scrotes that can't be bothered to work, and good people like yourselfs with an illness like yours don't get a bloody penny.
Good luck and hope your treatment goes well.
MacMillan cancer support nurses as already said are bang up to date on all aspects of cancer support http://www.macmillan.org.uk/ I would have thought you'd be entitled to Disability Living Allowance.
Good Luck - Hope you're well on the way to recovery
Macmillan or marie curie. This is not on you, are really genuinely ill and can't claim. Go to your nearest CAB. Wish you well and my thoughts are with you and yours. x
Do you have a McMillain nurse? They are very very up to date with what financial help and support you can get.
i am so sorry, the others are right, macmillan give you all financial advice and will tell you what you are entitled too.
you should get something, it is always the ones who work and get sod all, its maddening.
i wish you all the very best with your treatment, and keep fighting. it xxxx
