I’m a breast cancer survivor. I need breast reduction and augmentation that the insurance will not pay for because I never received a mastectomy.

I am a breast cancer survivor. I need breast reduction and augmentation that I never thought to get at all after having all treatment which included surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. 

It was never an issue for me to be different and not “fixing” my healthy breast after all the treatments until now.  I have necrosis and it causes me much pain. I need to have my breast fixed and done as it is part of allowed augmentation of the breast. 

I can not get it done without having an issue with my other breast. The insurance will cover the cancer free breast but not for the other one to be reduced to match it. If I would have had a mastectomy then it would have covered it but I chose a lumpectomy, which does not cover the other breast to be reduced. 

It will cost over 15,000 dollars for the reduction surgery for the healthy breast. I have reached out to everyone I know and can not receive any kind of help nor can I receive a loan or anything. I can’t catch a break for a person who fought to survive to live. 

Please help me in getting this money to proceed to the next step in this  endeavor. 

Please look into your heart as I could be your sister, your mother, your wife, your aunt, or your best friend. 

I could really use your empathy, kindness, and contribution. 

Bless you and may you never have to deal with this as well.
