THE FIGHT CONTINUES I am 46 years old...I was diagnosed in February 2016 with CLL ( Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) which for 90% of patients only need treatments sometimes between 15to 20 years after initial diagnosis...I unfortunately am in the other 10%...and its the more aggressive form....I needed my first treatments of Rituximab in December to Januarury of this year 2018 NOW...THE BATTLE CONTINUES.... On (12/19/2018) I start CHEMO..it will be twice a month for 6 months ..The combination of chemo drugs will be Bendamustine and Rituximab...and as soon as I start chemo..and because my immune system will be real weak...i will need to take (2) Zovirax 400mg pills twice daily for 6 months to help prevent any outbreaks of shingles/herpes/ or other crap and also (3) Bactrim DS pills 3 times a week to prevent/fight any bacterial infections.....THERE I SUMMED IT ALL Up. As I fight this,  I am tired and sore a lot of times and don't have the energy to complete something....I am an outspoken man...wear my heart on my sleeve...but I am also a proud man that hates to ask for help... Being unemployed...since Aug 3, 2018 due to a hand injury/surgery I do collect workmans comp which is not exactly what i was making while working and I have had no medical insurance, having to pay medical and medications out-of-pocket which isn't cheap. Also, having my eldest son start College this year has been a financial challenge... I am asking for help to try and catch up on my mortage...utilities and some bills I can't keep up with...before I get more and more in debt... If you can help... myself and my family would greatly appreciate it .If you can't...please share this with as many people as possible in hopes that someone can.....Can be 10.00 to whatever....but 100 people donating 10.00 each adds up... And yes I know it's the Holidays which makes me feel guilty for asking.... but I will understand either way... THANK YOU

Ok..so I have some spare time to explain a few things about my treatment for those who want an update....First...within 2 weeks prior to first treatment..my white blood cell count jumped 5,000. ..took almost a year for it to go up that much...and lymphocyte absolute (cancer cells) was higher than ever....so to put it short...IT WAS TIME...now....the first pic is my labs the day before 1st treatment....the second pic is the day before my 2nd treatment..(PERFECTLY IN NORMAL RANGE)...just pay attention to WBC. and Lymp Abs.....so i was like what the hell??? Awesome right? Well Leukemia is a friggin weird Cancer....basically. next my counts will go so low that my immune system will be very weak...and have to expect getting sick and/or hospitalized. Then will only be getting stronger in 6 months or so....anyway long story short...im enjoying the way I feel NOW...:)
