I was diagnosed with cancer in 2006. but befor that i had pains bumps (lymph nodes) on my chest and face. i started having really bad pains in the middle of the night. late 2005 it got worst in worst then started getting bumps on my chest then by may i had them on my face. lost alot of weight. i would go to the hospital every time i would get pain they would just give me pain killers. i didnt have insurance. i went to about 4 or five hospitals and nothing none of them found anything wrong i got cat scans and blood drawn and everything like that. nothing was found. it got so bad at one point i was in the hospital for three days everyday blood was drawn and test were done. they let me go with some pain med. i didnt know what to do my dad got so desperate he sent me to mexico. were there in less than a week they found i had cancer. i came back and went to another hospital with proof... in spanish and they said it was not valid. and they discharged me. after all these hospital visits im in dept still have bills of 1000s of dollars each hospital i refuse to pay them since they let my cancer well leukemia get worst if caught at an early stage i would not have needed a bone marrow transplant said my doctors at city of hope were im currently a patient. im in remission and im healthy but the cancer can still return. I need to know if i can at least get rid of the hospital bills. thanks in advance for taking the time to read and respond.
