Review for HealthWell Foundation, Germantown, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Ovarian cancer is sneaky, by the time one realizes something isn't right, usually it is advanced. I am one of the lucky ones in that I have a great team and so far have beaten the odds. However it is also a cancer that recurs...and a newish drug can lengthen the time between the recurrences and yet more chemo.

Unfortunately the drug is way expensive and that is where HealthWell is a life with a relatively simple application (supported by tax returns etc) HealthWell is covering my costs...and for that my husband and I are so grateful - we could not possibly afford them.

The staff at HealthWell have been very helpful and we did not have to wait long at all - every day counts.

Thanks for helping me stay alive longer.
