Will the center work out a payment schedule for you? Depending on your insurance you probably will have continuing copayments as well as out of pocket expenses for medications.
The larger faith based hospital systems have assistance programs that ;may be able to help you if you use their system.
MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston might be a resource. Not sure what would be available in the Dallas area. Regional Teaching Hospital systems might also help.
