Chronic and life-threatening illnesses often require thousands of dollars in medical treatments. If the diagnosis is cancer, that figure could easily rise to the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Since many families simply can’t afford to cover these exorbitant costs, bankruptcy might be the only solution. If you’re struggling to pay off medical bills, consider talking to a bankruptcy lawyer about your situation.
The family featured in this video could very well need to consult a bankruptcy attorney about their difficult finances. When you watch this clip, you’ll meet Hunter Swain and her father. Hunter is a young girl diagnosed with leukemia. She’s still fighting the disease, but needs about a dozen different chemotherapy drugs—all of which are prohibitively expensive.
