In reply to question from Marion about insurance, we had three appeals and three denials. Fortunately I work for a hospital that helped us immensely. As far as radiation therapy went, the hospital picked up the tab under their balloon insurance policy, as we had already started radiation when we were denied (they had approved it initially). The chemo we had to pay for but we got the drugs at the hospital cost. Again, we were denied after we had started treatment so I believe this was instrumental in the help we received from the hospital.
Also, hopefully all of his cancer was removed, as this is the only way to stop this type of cancer, and since we are on top of things, I think we can be prepared for what may come down the road and are living for the moment right now and enjoying our wonderful luck, which is actually what it comes down to - very lucky to have found this in it's very earliest stage.
