I am Clark Allen and 7 months ago I was put in the hospital and diagnosed with a rare type of germ cell cancer. On February 26th I went under a 12+ hour surgery to remove a football size tumor from my pelvis and other Teratoma tumors scattered through out my abdomen. The surgery was successful but has left a long road to recovery in front of me. We have been told If everything goes right and I work hard I might be back to work in another 6 months. With that I will be out of work for a total of 12 months before I can hopefully return. I no longer have any funds in savings with no disability and my family has maxed out everything that we have. My parents have taken on numerous medical bills from hospital visits, chemo, other treatments, Surgery and all the traveling expenses from staying in Houston for weeks at a time. On top of that my parents have also had to start paying the $2,000 dollars worth of monthly bills I personally have apart from everything else. Up until this point the out of pocket expenses has come to a total of $70,000. My family is running out of options financially and we have no where else to turn but to ask for help. They have given every last ounce and penny they have to make sure I had the care so that I am here and alive today. So I’m doing everything I can with the second chance at life they helped give me to make sure the bills from that doesn’t take everything we’ve worked so hard for. The total I am asking for is a lot but it’s what we have to comeup with to make ends eventually meet. We have a long ways to go before things get easier so anyone who is willing to donate I will never be able to thank you enough. My family and I will forever be grateful.
