Clinical trial: Stage 4 breast cancer treatments include a variety of complex options. I suggest that you look into enrolling into a funded clinical trial for stage 4 breast cancer, which will provide options for reduced or free treatment (see: http://www.Cancer.Gov/clinicaltrials). In addition, please consult with a social worker to see what other options for coverage that may be available to you. Good luck.
