It's really important that you tell us where you live (city and state) so we can do some research for you.

In the meantime, though, I found a page from stopbreastcancer.org that helps people find resources when they don't have insurance. Here is the link; scroll down to "If You Don't Have Health Insurance:"


There are cancer-related assistance systems around the country. Just let us know where you are and we'll see what we can find in your area.
