Help Support James and His Family!

Hi everyone! As friends of James and Jessica (his wife), we've made this donation page on their behalf as the medical bills and living expenses are piling up.

James, age 30, was diagnosed with Stage 4B Hodgkins Lymphoma in May 2012. His doctors have recently escalated his chemotherapy to the high dose BEACOPP. James has much more intense side effects and a lot more chemotherapy days. His doctors feel that with the escalated dose there is a higher chance they might be able to get him into remission. James has been in and out of the hospital, fighting like a champ. Here's a running list of what he's endured so far:

3 chemotherapy treatments
4 hospital stays =13 days & nights in hospital
1 port procedure
4 pulmonary function tests
2 ekg's
3 ct scans
2 pet scans
1 lung biopsy 
32 blood draws for counts
5 chest x-rays

3 blood transfusions

This page is not just to help James but to help with the financial aspects of the whole family. Jessica (his wife), Payten (2 years), and Lorelei (6 months) depend on James to be the breadwinner of the household. Due to the more intense treatment plan, James eventually may no longer be able to work.

Now, the Blank family needs our help! Your generosity will go towards medical costs and costs of living. Most importantly, the money raised will help ease their burden at this crucial time. Thank you for your contribution!
Every bit helps and please remember: No one fights alone!
