Fighting Lymphoma & Hoping For Some Small Miracles

I was diagnosed with T Cell Lypmphoblastic Lymphoma a rare and aggressive cancer of in which created a lump the size of a grapefruit in a matter of months that protruded from my neck. After a biopsy I was undergoing Hyper CVAD chemo therapy for 6 months. I am 4 months into treatment and have a handle on the situation. If it wasn't for the science and the grace of god I wouldn't be here. Please follow, share and if you can contribute to my cause, its nice to have time to make change. 

I noticed a lump on my neck in December which I thought was a lump from a broken tooth. I had the tooth extract but the lump resided. After 4 months in March 2012 I noticed a lot of discomfort from the lump as it was beginning to grow. I thought it was an infection or a some type of neck cyst. Raising concern, I went to my local doctor who expressed that it was an urgnent matter that needed an ear nose and throat specialist's attention. When I home to tell my mother who is disabled that I need to get a good health insurance program to pay for future test. I waited a month to see the ENT who did a needle biopsy which determined I had T Cell Lyphoma. A surgical biopsy a week later determined that it was Lymphoblastic Leukemia/Lymphoma. I went threw a bone marrow biopsy yesterday (7-10-12). In the past two months the lump grew into a massive mass protruding from my neck. I felt like a complete oddity walking in public and doing normal things, but an eccentric part of myself was quite humorous to the matter cause I felt physically ok, just my neck freaky. I started taking steroids because my chemo is in just two days. And I have been feeling pretty well today actually other than some dental issues I am trying to work out. 

I guess the reason I am posting this is that I had to increase my medical insurace up from 180 dollars to 610. I just started a new job but have to take a leave for about 3 months cause my cancer is a rare form of lymphoma which requires aggressive surgery and chemo therapy. And financially I hear "you will get through it' I feel charity in random acts of kindness through this website and the goal I set will help me keep a float. I appriciate your commitment to humanity.

Yours truly,
Daniel Silver
