 in response to lesadiana...   

Two more things ... one, The Salvation Army often offers assistance with med costs. And are you on Medicaid? If not, apply ... or rather, are you receiving food assistance? If not, apply for that too, ... once you get in the system, you become eligible for additional assistance, like with prescriptions. Here's a link to a page about basic financial assistance needs ...Finding Financial Assistance. If nothing else, it may have some other direction and resources for other things so you can save some money elsewhere. Best of luck, Cat

 in response to lesadiana...   I know this won't cover all of the med costs, but there are discount programs you can access online which are easy and quick to sign up with and they typically discount anywhere between 20 and 60% ... You can print off the "card" they give you online, and you only supply your name and birthdate for most of these programs ... no cost to you. Sun Associates is one, ... PSCard is another. You can Google these, along with Googling "prescription discount programs" and you should come up with about 5 good ones. Also, if your meds are offered in generic, you can go to Walmart or Walgreens (there are a few other pharmacies which offer this as well, but I know both of these for sure have this program), and you can get any generic for $4. Lastly, if the meds are more pricey and/or brand name, you can go to the drug manufactures website and apply for a free one month or one week sample (depending on the drug, program, maker, etc), along with applying for their low income assistance programs .. which typically covers most, if not all of the given script. I hope that helps some! Blessings to you! I hope your recovery and healing moves along quickly and easily! I've had multiple back surgeries myself and can completely relate! Cat

 in response to cateyes...   You are trying to convince everyone that you are among the very very few that would give to the homeless two to four years ago? I bet even Duffer wouldn't have done it because eerything was going a lot better then and why oh why would anyone bother with such dribble. How's that for saying what's on a person's mind Dufffer, I didn't mince words before , I'll not do it now.

Well to be completely honest. I need someone's help because I really want to meet Miley Cyrus in person and my family can't afford it. I have a lot of health issues and the part about where my family can't afford it, it is because we have stacks of medical bills. so if someone out there is willing to see this, please help...

 in response to cateyes...   This is Duffer,I do not know you but finally some one has the guts to say what the heck is really on your mind,I wasnt sure if I were the only one but now I got somebody to copete with,excuse me but I am 64 years old,been thru Hell and and back and am way to to play games. If I ask a question I want an answer,if I say something I darn well mean it,its just too much pussy footing around and no one really does what they say will do anymore,they will run around the barn,anything they can to pass the buck off on some one but they will sure as hell take the credit if it comes out right.As you said the rich only come out when they can be noticed,if at all.I would like to know what the rich do for thier for-fathers,probably hide them in a closet,sorry I get cranked up and dont know when to shut up.Hopefully you get my meaning anyway.

Inspiration
 in response to pinkbunny...   I would recommend writing a hardship letter to the CEO of the hospital, asking for forgiveness of this debt. They may either write off the entire debt you owe or just part it. Either way, you have nothing to lose by asking. I have done this for myself as well as for others with much success. If you need my help, I'll be glad to draft you a letter to send them as well as finding the contact information for the CEO. Just let me know.
