Help with Justin's Treatment

$15,480 of $13,000 goal

Raised by 254 people in 7 months
Created December 27, 2018
As you may know, Justin Hiltner was diagnosed with colorectal cancer just as the album we recorded earlier in 2018 was released in August. While he has insurance, and he's still able to earn some income through his work for The Bluegrass Situation, the timing of his diagnosis and treatment means that he's facing some pretty steep out-of-pocket expenses before he reaches his insurance's limits - basically, he''ll hit his maximum for 2018 right at the end of the year, and then will need to pay out-of-pocket up to the maximum again at the start of 2019.

That's where this campaign comes in. Helping to cover Justin's out-of-pocket treatment expenses will give him the flexibility to pay for his other living needs without having to make treament-or-food kinds of choices (choices that, I know he would want me to point out, many fellow Americans are forced to make on a daily basis).

I know how much Justin appreciates the love and support he's gotten already through Caring Bridge and through direct connections with friends and family - and if that's all you're able to do, it's more than enough! But since news of his cancer has made the rounds, a lot of folks have asked how they can contribute - and this is how.

Thanks in advance for your help, and you can follow along with Justin's progress at his Caring Bridge site:

Dear friends,

First of all, welcome to everyone who's donated since my previous update - welcome, and thank you!

We are thrilled beyond measure to note that we have reached our goal of covering the out-of-pocket expenses that Justin's insurance doesn't cover. Because I know that there are still folks who would like to contribute, and because there are plenty of other expenses beyond the reach of insurance - from prescription drug charges to simple living expenses - we're going to leave the campaign open for a while. Feel free to keep sharing!

And thanks once again. Your generosity has been truly inspiring.

Dear friends,

Believe me, your support has been far beyond what Justin and I expected - from the bottom of our hearts, thank you! We're more than halfway to our goal of covering Justin's out-of-pocket treatment costs - please keep spreading the word!
