My best friend has cystic fibrosis and has recently been hospitalized (again). Her lung function was down to 33%. Her doctor told her she needs to quit work and file for disability. She can't find a way to file, though, because everyone says she has to go without income for six months, which means no insurance to cover doctor's visits or medication. Plus, she is a single mother of a beautiful eight year old daughter and can't afford to go without income because she has to support her daughter. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to try to get disability without going so long without work. If my friend quits work, she has two or more years to live. If she doesn't, she has possibly six months to a year. I know she wants to get disability and spend as much time with her daughter as possible, but she is at a loss for what to do. Does anyone have a similar experience or some advice or a number to call to explain her situation and possibly speed up the disability process? I'd really appreciate anything anyone has to offer.
