My best friend was just diagnosed with breast cancer 4 months ago, her husband just got laid off today from the job he has had for 8 years (to complicate this he only has a high school education & it was a good position he would have never gotten if he hadn't worked his way up in the company), she is already having to file for bankruptcy, she is about to lose her home because it is being foreclosed on due to her APR adjusting to over 9%, her husbands car just got totaled today on the way to pick up his stuff from the job he lost, and to boot she will not be able to afford COBRA health insurance to cover the radiation treatments that she is going to need, as well as all the other continued care she will need due to the cancer.
This is not made up, this is a sincere attempt to get my friend the help she so desperately needs right now. She is so overwhelmed. I know this sounds too sad to be true, but it isn't, it is what is what she is facing today. Did I mention she is only 33 & has two little boys ages 1 & 2?
So much has happened to her in the last few months that I will make any call I have to or bang on any doors to find her help.
We live in the Los Angeles, California area. If anyone knows someone who can help, please e-mail me here or leave your contacts on this page for me.
I am considering calling some local news stations, but I'm sure the response would be luke warm. Any advice or suggestions on how I can help my friend?
Many thanks in advance to everyone.
