Today’s episode of Dog Cancer Answers is about a really sensitive subject: what happens when you can’t afford cancer treatments?
There are two ways to think about this, and we cover both.
First up is the many ways that you can get help with finances. Not all of them might apply to your situation, but there ARE some options you can explore.
Second, we talk about the very real GUILT that comes with not having the funds to cover cancer treatments.
And I have some ideas for how to handle that, and a couple of stories to share that just might … hopefully will … make you feel a little bit better.
Not a LOT better.
The only thing that would make you feel a LOT better would be for someone to magic away your dog’s cancer.
But just a little bit better. I hope.
