    Since I was diagnosed with cancer in 2003, and had to undergo numerous MRIs, etc. and three knee operations in the last two years, I have had nearly $500,000 in health care bills. I have been fortunate in that I had just been covered by Medicare before the cancer was discovered. In addition, my private health care insurance took care of the costs not covered by Medicare: otherwise I would have had to go into bankruptcy long ago!
