Michael Tipton vs. T-Cell Lymphoma

Michael Tipton is a beloved husband, father of five boys, and grandfather to seven girls and three boys. We all love him dearly and know him to be loving, generous, humorous, and honest. Michael simply does not deserve this disease nor does he deserve the financial obstacles it presents. He works in operations for Apache Oil & Gas and accels in everything he puts his mind to. We can beat this with your help. Thank you.

From Michael Tipton -- "
I have been diagnosed with T-cell Lymphoma.  This cancer is aggresive, and I would like to knock it into remission pronto.  My treatment will be chemotherapy and a stem-cell transplant.  The transplant will require 60- to 90-days in the hospital which may have to happen as soon as September or October 2014.

I have good medical insurance, but it may not cover the cost of the stem cell transplant fully and definitely does not cover the cost of travel, hotels, and meals.

We are currently living on my income alone and cannot come up with enough money to pay these travel expenses.  The MD Anderson hospital in Houston, TX is about a ten-hour drive from our home in Wheeler, TX and Amarillo is nearly a two-hour drive.  We have been to Houston twice and Amarillo four times so far already.

My wife and I need monetary assistance and prayers from wherever they may come for the constant travel and stem-cell transplant."

Things Cancer Cannot Do:

It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot destroy peace
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot suppress memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul
It cannot steal eternal life
It cannot conquer the spirit
