Stanford/Medical Cost

I guess I'll start by saying, I hate having to do this.

As some of you already know, I have a rare type of cancer called Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma. I had surgery just 26 days ago to remove 2 tumors from both eyes, getting told that 1 of 2 of those tumors was a reoccurrence of Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma.

You can read more about it here;

Within the month of this all coming to a head, with my daughter Olivia’s competition season for gym starting, Christmas, and the unexpected $4000 vet bill we had to pay; things are tight and only getting tighter.

There is not a lot of research on this type of cancer which is why I’m being sent to Stanford to see a crazy amount of Doctors there to discuss my options which are pretty set in stone with either Surgery, Radiation, or both.

We already know Stanford is not cheap, and we're planning as much as we can with how little time we have before we have to leave.

The funds raised from this campaign are going to be put all towards Stanford, Medical Cost, Surgery, Radiation, Hotel Bills, Travel Expenses and any other expenses that will come in time.

With some of the financials covered, my goal is for us to be able to solely focus on getting better and getting the best medical care possible without making our kids aware of the financial burden that this is putting on us.

If nobody can help, I completely understand and we will make it work! But if you can I will be forever grateful! I love you all so much! Thank you!
