Dennis Hotte Cancer Fund

Hi. My name is Dennis Hotte & I have cancer. In May 2002 I was diagnosed with CML (Chronic Myelogemous Leukemia) & have been fighting this ever since. My system has not responded to various Chemo medications & I am now scheduled for a bone marrow transplant in early October at Mass General in Boston. I was forced to leave my truck driving job in July, due to the side effects of the current chemo treatment. I have applied for disability, which has not yet been approved, but if/when approved, receiving funds could still be a few months out. Insurance, fortunately is covering most of the medical expenses. My girlfriend is also leaving her job due to the intensity of this whole process & to support me through this. My hospital stay willbe about 1 month or longer, depending on how it goes, then the home care is very intense & precise, including 2-4 trips into Boston, per week for follow up. It may be a few months before she can return to a full time job & I may be looking at possibly a year, or longer.

Since our income was cut in half in July & now that we are facing no income in the immediate future, it was suggested by a good friend, who is organizing this, to reach out for assistance.

We are not extravagant by any means, so any assistance will be for basic living expenses & greatly appreciated!

Please keep me/us in your thoughts & prayers through this very trying time. SINCE THEN,
 i went into mass general  oct,7th, and underwent 7 days of intense mega chemo,then one day of rest, and then i underwent a Stem Cell Transplant, which is now a suscess but as 2015 grows near, and i am recoverying well, we are still awaiting funds from SSI, my 1st check will not be until May 1st,.of 2015 and i will only be granted one month instead of from octerber like it should be,..we are using what ever funds we can get to pay our bills, and stay afloat, durring these hard times, so whatever you can do to help us will be truly appreciated...merry christmas..

Sincerely,

Dennis Hotte
