      I have stage 4 and have stopped working for about 6 months, currently on the GSK combo. I have successfully obtained copay help through Chronic Fund foundation, for those of you needing help with prescription copay, their approval process is 24hrs. I submitted online application, 2 days later, I was approved. For those of you needing financial help, this is a good place.

      I am unsure where to go for help with my mortgage? I don't know

      if I should tell my lender about my diagnose, I am still current on my mortgage, but finding it harder & harder to make the payments. Has anyone reached out to their lender and obtained a successful outcome?
