Matt Scalese's Medical Expenses

Matt Scalese is my son.  This fund is being created to raise money to help pay for his medical expenses.  In November he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.  Matt had surgery to remove a tumor on his thyroid gland after which he underwent a full body scan which revealed 3 additional tumors; 2 in his neck and 1 under his right arm.  

Due to his employer terminating his employment he currently has no health insurance.  

Matt is in the process of receiving immunotherapy treatment.  For those of you who do not know, immunotherapy is a very expensive treatment for cancer which can cost $15,000 a month.  Matt is in month six of a year long treatment.  

Any financial assistance he can get would be sincerely appreciated.  I wasn't sure what goal to set for this Gofundme campaign as anything no matter how small will assist my son to receive another month of treatment.  

As a mother I am thanking you from the bottom of my heart for your assistance in helping my son.  I wish I had the financial resources that I could just sit down to write a check to cover everything myself.  Again, even the smallest contribution will help.

Thank you to everyone who reads this and donates.
