I do sympathize with your health issues, but Fidelity is a well respected financial institution and has been mentioned, the terms of your plan are determined by your employer and the IRS. Some 401k plans offer loan terms, but if you do not qualify or do not have sufficient funds to borrow or are trying to borrow too much, that may not be an option.

If your credit is decent, here's a website that rates medical loan providers, including tips on how to choose a lender. Sometimes a doctor will offer financing for medical procedures. And your health insurance company may offer programs to help you cover your share of the treatment as well. I would explore all of these options.
