在诊断乳房X线照片，几个活组织检查和两个MRIS之后，我在2月正式诊断出阶段IBC。5月12日我有一个双边乳房切除术。从那以后我没有工作过。我也决定重建，我刚刚在8月18日星期一的交流手术。我的作品的性质呈现不可能执行所需的任务。我用瘫痪的退伍军人在护理中工作。粉红色基金的回复我一直在两个月。幸运的是，我的医疗账单来自伊利诺伊州癌症患者的国家资助计划。不幸的是，我的日常账单不是。这就是为什么我呼吁他们。 The Pink Fund had decided that they are unable to assist me because they do not consider "reconstruction" "Active Treatment". I believe that I have already been through "Active Treatment". Isn't a cancer diagnosis, a biopsy and finally surgery and recovery considered "Active Treatment"? Anyway, the passage BELOW is taken directly from their website, and "reconstruction" is not mentioned. Fine. If they do not want reconstruction as part of their grant program, so be it. All the rest of the qualification guidelines are clear. And I qualify. Has anyone else had a problem with the Pink Fund? I personally received a phone call from the founder to discuss this discrepancy. Still, I was denied. I am looking for financial assistance for cost of living bills only. I have a return to work date of September 15th. Any ideas anyone? Thank you!!
- 积极治疗is defined as the period after a positive diagnosis of breast cancer has been made (with a diagnostic biopsy), and during which therapies are being administered, including surgical procedures (e.g., single or bi-lateral mastectomy, lumpectomy, axillary dissection or sentinel node biopsy), chemotherapy or radiation. For the purposes of The Pink Fund, active treatment does not include long-term hormonal therapies (including Tamoxifen, Fareston, Arimidex, Aromasin, Femara, Zoladex/Lupron, Megace, and Halotestin).
