I second what Kris said. Lauren owns her car and did at the time she applied. She also had money in her checking and savings. I remember the lady saying that the car did not count. The money she had needed to be under a certain amount and that was it. I don't remember Lauren having to give a blow by blow of her worst day. She had to list all the doctors she'd seen and a list of medications she was on. I think they verified everything with her doctors. Maybe it is different in every state. It sure sounds like it from our experiences.
I am pretty sure it is against the law to fire someone for having cancer. If it's not illegal, it sure is heartless. Sherry, I would check into the SSI again. All the best and I will do some digging on the matter.
My beautiful daughter, Lauren Patrice, will live on in my heart forever.
My comments, suggestions, and opinions are based on my experience as a caretaker for my daughter, Lauren and from reading anything I can get my hands on about Cholangiocarcinoma. Please consult a physician for professional guidance.
