I met a friend, his name is Scott Dauman. I met him from a neighborhood watch app. A lady had posted about him and somethings he needed. I read the post, donated a few items like aluminum foil, cat food, Tylenol, a robe etc.
As I got to know Scott, I understood more. He was in so much pain he could barely stand. He went to the doctor in January for a colonoscopy only to find out he has cancer...all after losing his home to hurricane Florence the year before and starting over.
Then, Covid 19 came and appointments got moved, cancelled etc. Fast forward to April. April 6th Scott went to the surgeon to have the lymph removed...once again notgood news. The cancer had spread...
He starts chemo this week, April 22 I believe. He does 9 sessions every 2 weeks for the first phase of treatment. His insurance will not cover a mobility scooter etc.
He does not drive and pays for a ride to and from treatments and doctor visits.
If you would like to donate directly his address is 1104 Pine Tree Dr., New Bern NC 28561. He could always usechecks, cash or money orders to pay bills. He does have a cat and needs cat food, cat litter etc. He also needs a weighted blanket, a toaster oven, an over the bed dinner tray, a moist/dry heating pad, a foldable/collapsible laundry cart, and a pillow top queen bed along with much more.
If you can donate even $5, it will help! If you have any questions, please comment here and we will respond.
4-20-20 UPDATE FROM SCOTT
Another rough night, up every 2 hours and hoping for relief today when I speak to the Dr. Thanks for all your patience/understanding.
