1. SSI [social security disability], is based on need [low income and assets] and also if there is no response to medical treatment. [if your Gastroenterologist confirms that there is significant weight loss despite adequate measures, you may be eligible for assistance]
2. You may contact your local city, county, state bar association or local legal aid office who can review the specific facts with counsel.

Best wishes for an outcome you can accept.
