Default Original Medicare and Breast Cancer

I hope someone can answer my questions. I'm disabled, under 65 and have just been diagnosed with breast cancer. I have the original medicare. No supplemental.

I'll need at least one surgery, radiation, mri, etc.

I know I will never be able to afford to pay for my treatment since with medicare covers only covers 80%. Radiation alone is so expensive.

I don't qualify for medicaid and have been looking into medicare advantage plans. I don't know if this is my best option or not. I'm in Pennsylvania

Also, does anyone know how I would go about getting medicare to grant me a special election? One of the medicare advantage plan companies told me that since I need this insurance right away, I should call medicare and ask for special election.

I need advice. Thanks in advance. This is a real nightmare for me.

Decisions made with respect to your health can only be made by you, so I can only offer what I would do if I were in your shoes..

First, I would not allow my immune system to be destroyed by radiation, especially after undergoing x-rays and mri.

Secondly, and I don't suggest this lightly, I strongly recommend essiac. This is a concoction of 4 very powerful (anti-cancer) herbs that are mixed in a proper ratio to each other, and was discovered by a nurse in the early 1900's. Her name was Rene Caisse, which is essiac spelled backwards. Do some research on her and her cancer-killing product.

I would also suggest a good quality vitamin-mineral product, and no, not something you can buy at walmart. Do some research on doctor Joel Wallach, (plenty of youtube videos) as he has reversed pretty much every health issue there is.

Finally, I know it must be difficult with all the stress, etc., but remember, cancer is a condition, not a disease, and conditions can be easily reversed.

Do whatever you need to do to de-stress. Take extra vitamin C, D3, and 10% Lugol's iodine. Change your diet to include more veggies, especially those from the cruciferous family, and cut out the sugar, high fructose corn syrup, fried or processed food, including fast food. Drink green, white, or red tea with your essiac, and you can reverse this.

The body is designed to repair itself if you give it the raw materials that it needs. That means 16 vitamins, 60 minerals, 12 amino acids, and 3 essential fatty acids... in optimal amounts.

Cancer takes a long time to progress, so it will take some time to reverse as well.

I agree with pinballdoc... and to the essiac tea, taken at least 4 to 6 times a day you seriously need to add a lugols iodine supplement.... If it were me Id take 200 mg a day for the first 3 months then reduce to 50mg a day.

Also, if it were me I would do MMS. MMS is curing a lot of cancer in advanced stages. www.jimhumble.biz https://genesis2church.org/mms-protocol-list.html and cancer testimonials here: https://genesis2church.org/cancer.html

Granted they are having slightly more success in treating breast cancer with the slash and burn method than they use to but mostly due to earlier diagnosis. I would not do it.

Hello Amber and welcome to the forum. I'm very sorry to hear that you've been diagnosed with breast cancer, and I wish you the best in your journey toward health and full recovery.

I'm not on medicare yet, and don't know much about it. There has to be some offices you can contact locally with answers to your questions. If I come across any information that may help you, I will definitely post it here.

Contacting medicare about the special election sounds like a must for you, at least you'll know if it's possible, and if so, what forms and information are needed. I know it's a nightmare for you, hang in there, and you'll find a way to make things work. Take care.
