Senior Editor Melanie Haiken, who is responsible for Caring.com's coverage of cancer, general health, and family finance, discovered how important it is to provide accurate, targeted, usable health information to people facing difficult decisions.

I'm afraid this question is too hard to answer specifically without knowing more about the diagnosis, the treatment plan, and the type of chemo your doctor is prescribing. If you're uninsured or underinsured and are afraid you can't afford treatment, talk to your doctor, get lots of specifics, and then you can research options to help you pay for the treatment. Here are a few to consider:

Partnership for Prescription Assistance, an organization that helps pay for drugs. Their contact info is:

Also, some drug companies offer their own individual assistanc plans to help pay for the specific drugs they manufacture. Here are a few:
Bristol Myers Squibb

Eli Lilly Patient Assistance Lillly Cares Program
