The High Cost OF Chemotherapy

MY main post was I have lung and liver cancer and I was not going to take chemo, I think I'm more scared of Chemo then dieing. My family keeps begging me to at least try the chemo, But I have one real big problem with that Which is insurance CO-PAY My share of each treatment is $1500.00
plus any other test or drugs I might have to pay for up front. The treatment is every 3 weeks for 6 months. I'm on Social Security Due to a broken back and can't ever work again. I'm a white male age 61, Anyway There is no way in the world I can afford the CO-PAY, If I could I might give it a try.
I'm not afraid of dieing But I'm not in a hurry either.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
