My bf called me with very sad news . His mom just found out she has liver cancer. She doesn't have money for treatment because she so doesn't have cancer. I can't stop crying. I love this woman. Shes the only one in his family that stood up for me when I told them I was breastfeeding. I consider her a mom.

Omg I'm so sorry. I'm just upset. It was hard to decipher what my nLbf said. I think even with treatment it won't help. I wish I could help her.

If she has cancer she can get medicare or medicaid totake care of her health.  My step mom had the same problem she had no money and no insurance.

 How old is she? If she is under 65 but has a disability and has been receiving social security benefits, she may be able to qualify for Medicare. If she's not 65, she needs to apply for Medicaid if her income level is within her state's guidelines. If treatment will be beneficial to her, I hope she can find a way to get assistance. No one should have to accept a terminal diagnosis if it's only because you can't afford treatment. This breaks my heart. Does she know how advanced the cancer is yet?

Idk how old she is. We just know she has liver cancer. We don't know the severity of it. I told her i can donate but she refuses because of the kids.
