Jaden deposited his sperm and was hospitalized for one week and began chemotherapy in August. He will have four rounds of chemotherapy. Only when his chemotherapy ends in November, will his family know if this treatment eradicated the cancer. If it doesn’t, Jaden will need to have a series of surgeries to remove the tumors.
Jaden is insured; however, there are many additional expenses such as co-pays, sperm banking, travel to specialists, and medications that are not covered. In addition, he has been unable to work during this time, and thus, hasn’t been able to continue contributing towards his education.
Jaden has a promising future ahead of him. He recently graduated from high school and was accepted to Santa Monica College where he plans to study Political Science and then transfer to UCLA to study International Relations and Comparative Politics. All he wants to do is get better and get back to being a productive member of society. Through his ordeal he has realized the monumental importance of universal health care, and aims to do his part to improve our health care system by starting a career in politics. With your help, he can recover, go to college in spring, and help to fight for health coverage for everyone in need.
