So one thing I haven't written much about cancer is the financial impact it can have. We have been truly blessed with an outstanding health insurance plan provided by LP so the impact on us has been relatively minimal. Our particular plan has a $2,000 out of pocket maximum which we hit about 15 minutes after the doctors first said the word cancer.
Vanderbilt has a really great web platform that enables me to keep track of my labs, communicate with my providers, etc. but it also has a billing interface. So, just for grins, I took a look at what my illness has cost so far. If I just typed the numbers in nobody would believe it so I copied them off the website.
