James Macleod's Fight Against Cancer

Message from James :

             Dear Friends & Associates' Thanks again for all your help. I have finished the radiation treatment, and have been trying to rebuild my immune system, and the damage that the radiation did to my body.       
            * Thanks to you,  I have been able to pay off many of the bills - but a overwhelming amount of follow-up bills have been flowing in over the last 6 months ( many were not covered by my insurance; out-of network treatments "which I have had to cover 50% of ", larger co-pays than expected, and much of the recovery treatment is not covered by my insurance.......
          Needless to say ; At the time of this writing ; I am $30,000 in debt - - and can no longer afford the Stem cell treatment that is needed..(this isn't including the back mortgage bills , and the accumulated day -to- day bills that I have been doing my best to keep at bay).............
.......so I come to you one more time to request help in "fighting this fight of my life !"
     **Any amount donated is helpful. Sorry to bother you about this ... I tried to solve this on my own for the last 6 months - but now I need help. ----- Thank you so much, James

Dear Friends, Brothers & Sisters,
               **Thank you all for helping me in my fight against cancer. I am in treatment everyday-- fighting this cancer since December 12th of 2018. I am literally put in a “Linear Accelerator” for every treatment.

  When Brother Eddie & I thought we could only ask for “part of the Debt” that I have acquired - due to the Cancer Treatment"- We were asking for 10,000.  Well the actual costs attributed to this entire fight & debt acquired is at $35,000. **I am not asking you to donate again ( I appreciate the love, brotherhood, and everything you've done). I am merely asking you to pass this message, and Link on to anyone else that could, and has the ability to help.

 I am overwhelmed by your support...... this I will never forget. ----Sincerely, James Macleod

My Previous Message :

Dear Friends, Brothers & Sisters,

      I was diagnosed with cancer in the later part of 2018. Being a fairly private person, I didn’t tell anyone but my family, and a couple of close friends.
   However, things started to culminate in December of 2018, by then the Prostrate Cancer had shown to have developed itself into a dangerous level.  I was diagnosed with "Malignant neoplasm of prostrate cancer”.  It was rated at a high-risk level, so I had to start treatment immediately.  Due to the radiation treatments, I haven’t been able to work since my last job as a video-engineer in the 1st week of Dec. 2018.
    For the last 10 years I have been taking care of my ailing mother, Virginia, (who suffered from Alzheimer’s) and this depleted any of my savings. She sadly passed away gracefully in the latter part of 2018. Not to long after mom’s passing, my urologist sent me in for a series of tests which revealed I had cancer.  Needless to say – it hasn’t been easy since then.
    Now it’s into March of 2019 and at the moment I have emptied out my bank account and liquidated all my assets to raise money to pay the accumulating living expenses, debts, and medical bills. Everyday the expenses build up higher, and higher.

         It seems I can’t do this myself, so I am humbly reaching out to you for help,  my friends, my production world colleagues, 37593146_1552017261420585_r.jpegmy co-workers, and  my brothers & sisters of Local #16. 
                                              ---  with sincerest  gratitude,   James MacLeod
