    Hi, I saw this on here and wanted to share one that I was able to use. The social worker at the oncologist office helped me with this. It is PAF Copay Relief Foundation. You have to have insurance with a prescription copay. This paid for my chemo treatments, tamoxifan, pain meds and nausea meds.www.copays.org The phone number is 1-866-512-3861. Your doctor has to submit medical information and of cours you have several forms to fill out. I received a $2000.00 grant. I used $1600.00 of it. It took quite a bit of pressure off of me. Especially with radiation being so expensive. If you call them getting through at the first of the month is hard, they are busy paying claims. However don't give up, I know several other people that have been able to get help as well.
