Prescription Savings Miracle

Today I am thankful for and loving the internet and my brand new Prescription Savings Card. I had breast cancer 2.5 years ago and am still on medication therapy for another three years. I have no insurance and the medication is $200.00 a month. Well, Obviously with a family of eight things are a bit tight, especially with me staying home with the baby for now.

I have been researching online getting help with this medication and came across this free prescription savings card at Today I wet to Walgreens to pick it up for $51.86. Nope, I said. Then I called Target, an entire months supply of Tamoxifen for a whopping total of $9.00 at the Target pharmacy! How's that for savings!!!!!!????? WOO HOO!

In addition, my prescriptions ran out so I had to go in for an office visit and liver panels but my wonderful, brilliant oncologist simply refilled my prescriptions for me once I explained our financial circumstances to their office. YIPPEE!!!

Oh yeah, I guess I'm also thankful for being a two and a half year cancer kicking mommy of six youngens!!!

Never worry about anything. Instead, in every situation let your petitions be made known to God through prayers and requests, with thanksgiving. ~Phil 4:6

My next feat....I'm a year overdue for a mammogram. I know, that's shameful! But that's my next research project. If anyone out there knows how to apply for the free ones, I'd love some info. (Yeah I know I have the button on my sidebar!)
