shes dying, so just give up on the meds, you arent responsible for her bills, so just let her go quietly and let the county bury her.this will ruin everyones life if you let it. im really sorry, but i had to deal with this with my mother too.

You need to be realistic.
She has metastatic lung cancer to the brain.
Therefore she has terminal lung cancer, stage 4.
You can get your mother medicaid.
You probably need to try to sell her house.
And you may want to get Hospice in to help take care of her.

In a country that can wage war costing billions, this situation is disgusting. My sister, God bless her died the same way in 1995. She rec'd the best of care and all the drugs needed. It didn't cost the family a cent. In Canada we have socialized medicine and hospitalization. We all have Canada Pension Plan which more than covers funeral expenses. I'm sorry dear, this is no help to you or your mom. The suggestions by the others, who are probably Americans, would know better what you have to do. God bless you, your mom and family, I wish I could at least say something more than God Bless & all my love Doug W. Halifax NS

i went through this same thing 1st thing is try to spend all the time you can with your mom it's hard i know my mother had lung and brain cancer she just passed in July
you can get her on Medicaid for her health ins and meds also there is alto of web sites like American lung and the one that helped us out alot was cancer-care another thing we did was had a benefit dinner sold tickets $5.00 a plate of BBQ pork the VFW helped us it raised over 3,000 dollars alot of churches will also up
stay strong and make happy memories for yourself and your kids with their grandma I'm glad i did they told me my mom only had 4months to live she was never sick she lasted 11 months you and your family will be in my prayers good luck and god bless

You need to go to the case management department of the hospital where your mother has recieved treatment and ask them for help completing an application for public assistance and a medical card in the state where you live. They can help you get food stamps
They can also assist you with filling out the paperwork to obtain free or reduced price medications thru the drug companies.
Also, please go to your township and fill out an application for assistance making her house payments.
You also can go to the local welfare department to find out where to get an application for energy assistance, so her utility bills are paid this winter.

The Salvation Army or a local church may be able to help you. Ask the hospital to assign a case worker to her. They will find help.

Go to the red cross they will help with food and rent and electric also go to the city hall where you live and they will help and also go to the human services in your area, no income the welfare will help with everything. I am sorry for your Mom, I will pray for her. Good luck honey.

Social Security or SSI can be a big help along with Welfare and local churches. Look in your local phone book under government offices. My mother-in-law has stage 4 lung cancer as well. I have taken on most of her care so I had her sign a Health Care Surrogate and a Power of Attorney so I can fill out all her paper work and go to her appointments with these companies for her. The Social Security office was amazing. They processed her disability claim very quickly and were such a big help. Good luck to you and your family.

talk to the socail worker at the hosp or clinic where your mom gets her treatment , they can help

Let your needs be known to your minister or priest - they will do whatever they can to get help for you.
