Chemotherapy denied by insurance

Thank you so much to all of you who have donated and have reached out to me about Gage. It means so much. Gage’s story has had a turn. We went to see the Dr in Salt Lake and a doctor at the City of Hope I’m LA. They told us that he was not strong enough for a bone marrow transplant but there is a particular type of chemo that will help him due to him having the adult form of the disease. The problem we ran into is that it’s not FDA approved for anyone under 18 years old. They are asking me to pay $48,000 a month for a year to hopefully cure him. I’m devastated. It’s so hard to see him suffer. I don’t normally ask for help, but if you know me, you know my boys mean everything to me. I am grateful to be on this journey. It has truly made me appreciate life. Thank you for any help. Love you all.
