My name is Ganitu Henbeto. I was diagnosed with blood cancer two years ago. It was hard to understand that I was only 23 years old to go through this, but I knew questioning will not get me through; I had to be positive and fight the to be there for my son and also my family.
I am very thankful that the prognosis is a positive one for this type of cancer. But I'm not going to lie - it's still scary to walk through all of this. I have an incredible team of doctors, family, and community like you and know I will get through it. I had a transplant a little over a year ago in Minnesota and my hospital bill is sky rocket. This time my treatment is going to be somewhere in New York and it’s going to be expensive because I have to fund my stay there. Last year I was fortunate that I was at my sister’s house, and was well accommodated.
Even though I do have insurance, I will still have a lot of medical bills and living expenses to pay. Rather than stressing about it all, I wanted to reach out and ask for some help. If you can donate anything, I will be so grateful. I know that everyone has financial stress and it's not always possible. I completely understand that as well. Only give if you can.
This diagnosis has forever changed my life and it has made me even more dedicated to living life to the absolute fullest, taking the best possible care of my body and giving back as much as I possibly can.
I am absolutely blown away by the love, generosity and your prayers that have come my way.
Thank you all for taking the time to read this and for being a part of my life.
Thank you and God bless!
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 KJV)
