[Pinkfreud, I?m impressed with your research skills, but if you don?t
wish to answer, feel free to open to other researchers?]

What hospitals or facilities will offer cancer care to someone without
health insurance at at nominal cost?

Recently, a friend of a friend was found to have a somewhat rare
cancer when surgeons were performing a hysterectomy. This woman does
not have any medical insurance and is in dire
financial straits because of the upcoming chemotherapy.  My friend has
asked me to determine if there are centers near the patient in
northern California, Nevada, or surrounding states that may offer
low-cost cancer treatment rates for experimental treatment.

Can you locate any medical facilities that may
assist someone with cancer who doesn?t have insurance?  I?ve heard
tell there may be such a place in Texas where a patient can undergo
experimental testing for
minimal medical charges.

Much obliged for the assistance,

Thank you very much for mentioning me by name. I truly do not think I
am the best Researcher for this task, since I am not familiar with
healthcare options in California. I suggest that you cancel this
question and repost it without my username so that it will be fully
open to all Researchers.
There is no answer at this time.

There are various experimental laboratories  - it all depends on the
exact type of cancer - "rare" cancer types usually will have alot of
positive response from labs to do free tests..
