This is What a Gorgeous Single Mum is Trying To Manage

Hi Rosemary,  

My name is *Mary Smith I am 44 years of age & I live in a rural area of Queensland called Bauple which is situated about 2 1/2 hours north of Brisbane.

In May I was diagnosed with breast cancer & had a right breast mastectomy & lymph nodes removed.

The cancer had spread to 2 out of 21 lymph nodes & am now undergoing 6 months of Chemo.

I am a single mother of my son Jack which is 10 & until my diagnosis was running a successful cleaning business, which with some government assistance kept the ball rolling.

I have had to give up my cleaning business at least till all my treatment is done & hopefully all will be recovered.

At the moment all the bills are piling up & getting very stressful, as the government income I am on is no where near enough to cover the incoming bills & general living expenses.

I have currently got a phone bill which is accumulating each month & is now up to $683.26, as well as I am a couple of

months behind in rent & also in need of some car maintenance. 

That's just the tip of the iceberg & just having enough left for general living expenses is getting harder & harder.

If any financial assistance is available to help with any of these things would be a major help to relieve some of the extra stress of my current situation.

As anyone going through cancer knows the added stress of financial problems just adds more stress to your recovery & I sometimes feel like it's all getting too much at once to handle with.

Another Gorgeous Lady - Who is Still Fighting Cancer

I have been fighting breast cancer since september 2006 and in the last few weeks been rediagnosed with my 2nd secondary brain tumor and am waiting to see how they can treat it.  We are very close  to loosing our house as we go back to normal repayments of $1640.00 as of jan 24 due to my illness we are receiving dissability and carers pension from centre link and find making the repayments difficult and very stressful.  do you know of anything else we can try so we can keep our house and hopefully reduce stress and i can recover thanks Athalie.

Helen's Story

Hi Rosemary

trust this email finds you and your family well.  

My journey was very complicated and although I know I'm not alone, I do wonder if there are others out there like me that lost several jobs leading up to the diagnosis and then had to fight not only my cancer, but also try to keep us (hubby and I) from going bankrupt.

In the end we lost my house to trade out of the bankrupcy - rather than go bankrupt.  I felt going bankrupt was an easy way out and whilst I could have fallen on the whole "cancer sword" so to speak and plead with my creditors to let us off I chose not to as I don't believe that does justice to the many women out there also travelling the "journey".  Luckily for us the people who bought the house have allowed us to stay and rent which was a god-send considering I was right in the middle of treatment.

My husband and I live now on $175 a week so we can meet bills and a couple of loans (that were kindly extended for us) and my medication costs.  I have not long finished treatment and had to return to work within 2 weeks of completing chemo.
