I was initially told that it was all in my head... so I like to say I started my own investigation using Google, Harvard health, and other people's stories of being told they were crazy or faking. My research also helped me find a doctor that really took my concerns as real and eventually diagnosed me with this condition.

I have multiple sources of information. I don't trust Drs at all and view them as a necessary evil. I get a lot of info from patient forums and by reading articles. Of course there certainly isn't any financial help available to cancer patients. I lost everything I had fighting this disease. All the foundations spend money on is research, there isn't any money for cancer patients, hell no! I lost everything we had in an apartment fire and my family and I are completely homeless. There are no resources whatsoever for people like me. The disease has even taken our dignity.
