Have high medical bills and can't pay rent

Post by CSheen » Sat Apr 09, 2011 1:05 pm

I am needing help to pay the remander of my rent for this month. I work and am usually able to meet my bills but this month we discovered that my daughter has cancer and she was operated on imediately due to a large tumor that was blocking her airway. After the surgery the incision site became infected an that forced us back into the hospital. Because she is a minor and has other health and mental issues she was not allowed by the hospital to be left alone causing me to miss work. I have been trying various organisations to find help because i have already received an eviction notice with no luck. I am becoming desperate she is quarantined in our home at the present because of radiation treatment to try and eliminate the cancer and i have no money to go anywhere else. I have tried the catholic family service and some of the other rent/utility recources in our area. What else can i do so that i can keep this home that my daughter needs? Lubbock texas

Sorry to hear that about your daughter. Terrible news. Cancer support groups exist, and non-profit agencies can help patients and their families pay resulting medical and health care bills. Be sure to ask the hospital and doctor for any type of payment plans.
Also look into the following which may be able to provide financial help for bills, debts, etc. while dealing with the cancer. CancerCare Co-Payment Assistance Foundation is one non-profit. Life Beyond Cancer is another. The programs are referenced here.

I need help paying rent this month. I have not ever needed help as bad as I do now! If I get evicted, me and my two kids, ages 5 and 7 will have no where to go! My youngest son is Deaf and can not go to every school. He must go to the school by the apartment I just moved into 4 months ago. I lost my job on 6-29-11 and was denied Unemployment. I need soap. I need to wash clothes. I finally got good stamps, I have no income! and can not work because my back/arm/shoulder/wrist/elbow hurts so bad, i almost feel like I'll pass out. I've been to chiropractor and a Crainal Therapist. I went to emergency room couple nights ago but was let go soon after I got there. I was referred to an orthopedic and nuerologist. Since I was denied medicaid, I have no way of seeing these doctors to help me get well. I need help with my rent for one month. August has got to bring me some work/income. Any help will be appreciated! Thank you,

Instead of going to an emergency room and potentially paying thousands of dollars for those hospital bills, try a free community clinic in your state. Most have highly trained doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals who donate their time to help the low income and uninsured. Almost all medical care is free if you can't afford it. Free clinics across the nation help millions of people every year with medical and health care needs, including dental and even prescriptions.

I am in desperate need of assistance with paying rent, and medical bills. I have never been in a situation like this and I need help ASAP. I work two jobs and go to school full time at North Carolina. At this point I feel like i'm about to have a nervous break down because of stress. I pray that things get better, but I REALLY need help right now, please help me with any assistance that you can offer. Thank you for your time, have a blessed day!! Please email me information and you can reply here to my email.

Do you have a medical condition that requires ongoing care in North Carolina. If so, try a clinic or medical center in the state. They can provide the low income and people with limited or no health insurance with free medical care, dental services, and other aid. Get information on North Carolina clinics. Maybe do have programs for students, and college students too. They may have relationships with credit counselors who can help you pay off those existing debts and bills too.

I’m 29 years old and live in Ventura County. I've been working since I was 13. The first time ever I’m dealing with some financial troubles. I lost my job when I was three months pregnant awith my third child and been trying to find a new one ever since. But as you can imagine it’s been really difficult. I’m so backed up on my bills and even had my car repo and had to move back in with my parents. Which their house is pretty full already I sleep on the couch. I’m desperate for some advice on what I should do now. My biggest concern is my car because I've already invested a lot of my money into. I’m now almost four months pregnant and scared I’m constantly stressing about money and thinking about the medical bills I’m about to take on. Where should I go about trying to solve my financial troubles?

The local Ventura Catholic Charities can often provide resources to pregnant women. The services may cover everything from medical needs to much more. They may have information on local mechanics that can offer discounted repairs for your car. Sometimes a garage will waive (or reduce) the labor. But parts you will still need to cover. They also often have details on employment programs, shelter for women, local community clinics, and other support. http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... s_*.html
