Stem Cell Transplant

Alex Ashton is my 22 year old son who was diagnosed with B-Cell Lymphoma in October 2018...He took a leave of absence from work to receive treatment over the following 6 months...Since the Chemo ended he went back to work...recently we found out through a PET scan that the cancer is still there and Alex is now receiving treatment farther from home at OHSU Knight Cancer Center in Portland, Oregon...he will not be able to work and is not eligible for unemployment.  He can apply for Social Security once the Stem Cell Transplant has taken place.  We are currently living only on my Social Security. We continue to make numerous trips to Corvallis for 3 to 4 days of hospital stay Chemotherapy in preparation for the transplant before we have to spend at least a month in Portland for the transplant procedure.  We need to also maintain our home in Newport, Oregon so we have a place to come home to when Alex's treatment is complete....I have no idea how I am going to do this...This has been spiritually, emotionally, physically, and financially devastating....I need help to save my son...any help would be appreciated beyond what words can express....Thank you
