Cody's Stem Cell Transplant Fund

I was diagnosed February 8th, 2013 with stage 4B Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I had 6 months of chemotherapy and went into remission August 5th, 2013.
In March 2014 my cancer relapsed and I was back to square one. I have managed to push through and come to an almost complete remission of my cancer. The next step to ensure I don't have another relapse is to undergo an allogenic stem cell transplant. Thankfully my only sibling, my older sister, is a complete match for a bone marrow donation for me. The only thing standing in my way is the fact that I have to stay in Nashville next to Vanderbilt Hospital for 100 days after the procedure. My mother only has 5 weeks left of family medical leave from her work. After that, we will be forced to pay for our health insuruance, which is $1100 a month. This procedure will greatly suppress my immune system and we will need to be able to pay for the insurance and specialized groceries that will not cause any sickness or harm to me. We have very little income coming in, as my dad works for a farmer and the winter is not the best time for working and my mother will be with me in Nashville. Any and all donations would greatly be apperciated!!
