Help Juan Fight Lymphoma!

Hello! My name is Juan esquivel, 26 year old newlywed whom was forced to move back to his parents home after recently being diagnosed with Anaplastic T-Cell lymphoma on December 17, 2017. Prior to the diagnosis I had been to the emergency room two other times where multiple tests were done but nothing came up positive for any possible diagnosis . Struggling since early November with my right arm mobility it caused me to miss work and for my wife to care for me. On December 15 I underwent a biopsy at the university hospital of newark where I was transferred from Robert wood Johnson hospital. After two days of being discharged I suffered from fevers, chills and sleepless nights. I was admitted back into the hospital at Robert wood Johnson December 27 where I was treated for various infections due to the biopsy. After 3 weeks of treatment and lab testing the oncology team decided to start chemotherapy. The first session brought down the mass in the right arm and the antibiotics seemed to be fighting off the infection. Being discharged a few days later after my first of six chemotherapy sessions, im finally back home resting and recovering. I will be going back to RWJ as an outpatient for treatment and lab works. Soon I will not be able to pay for the health insurance provided by my job. Not being able to physically move my arm fully, I am doing physical therapy everyday trying to gain full movement again. Not only was this a setback for me but this affected the people around me especially my wife and family. Having to put her studies on hold to be able to sustain the bills and cover for insurance. I hope to go back no my normal life and help her finish her vet tech program and for me to do what im passionate about. All of the donations will be going toward medical bills,insurance coverage and helping out my wife with her struggles as well. Each and everyday I'm thankful to still be able to be with my family and those I love around me. All i ask for is for you guys to share my story. A dollar or a prayer goes a long way and can help those in need. Thank you to those who are able to help and or share this. Updates will be made throughout the upcoming weeks during my progression. Thank you to those who are able to help once again.
