Cancer Financial Assistance for Louisiana Residents and Out of State Plus Chris update

So I have been filling out forms, licking envelopes, and slapping on the stamps for the last two days, I have found lots of resources, many for Louisiana Cancer Patients but also some for out of state . I will list them all below, hopefully it will help someone eles who just kind of had to start from scratch. 

Well Chris had an alright day today we took him for blood tests  and ran some errands. Although still fatigued I feel like he is feeling better this time than after the first round. I found out we have to go back early to Houston and do outpatient tests for 3 days before they actually admit him and start his BioChemotherapy. Blahhh so that means we will be gracing the halls of MD Anderson for at least 10 days this go around.  His appetite is still not back to normal but its getting better atleast. Well folks thats whats been going on.
We love you all and hope you have a nice weekend. Keep on praying.
