A couple of months ago, he was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of lymphoma. This cancer is rarely ever seen in our country. Because of the aggressiveness of the tumor and the rarity of the disease- he was immediately sent to specialists at the City of Hope. The treatment he must go through is not standard and has required traveling and staying far from home. In addition to the cost of copays and medical care, this has already meant many long trips back and forth as well as extended stays in motels.
Though it feels like such a long time already, we are still at the beginning of this long journey. The doctors have re-iterated that we have only one chance to get this right. Initial treatment plan of intense chemo and radiation therapies are expected to last several more months.
He probably wouldn’t approve of us starting this Go Fund Me or sharing his personal business, but we anticipate that he will need more help than we can give.
The bad thing about coming from a small town is that everything feels like a personal issue…. The good thing about coming from a small town is that everything feels like personal issue……
