Dear Mr. McIntyre,

We are contacting you because we are at our wits end with county and state agencies. Last January, my husband, Alan C. Lane, underwent emergency surgery. He is also a cancer patient. We had no insurance and we are raising two grandchildren because of a deadbeat father (our son) who gives us absolutly nothing towards help with them. For 6 months that it took for my husband to be approved for disability, we survived with help from friends, family, and churches. We did recieve food stamps for that period. It took almost 3 months to aquire Medicaid for Alan. However, the children have been on Medicaid for a long time. In October our first disability payment was received and they said we were no longer qualified for food stamps. We asked for a hearing and was eventually granted a small amount of food stamps. Now they cancelled his medicaid. Therefore because of the fact that Alan is still under care for cancer, we can't afford any medications, and I Charlene, still being under heart cardiologist's am unable to afford any of my medications. We get $1,506.00 a month for a family of four and they say we are not qualified for help? Two months ago I was disabled after undergoing open heart and bypass surgery and am not able to work. I have been a housewife for 30 years and do not qualify for any disability income, so my husbands is all we have. My husband is 61 years old and has worked and paid taxes all his life and now in our senior years we are not eligible for any type of assistance? Could you please explain how this system is supposed to work?

I would like to thank you for any help or suggestions you might have regarding a situation like this. We live in Brunswick Co. at 4927 Carol St. Southport NC 28461
