Colin's Fight Against Lymphoma

On December 17th, my 20-year-old boyfriend, Colin Edgar, was diagnosed with sporadic Burkitt’s Lymphoma. It’s an aggressive and rare form of cancer that attacks the central nervous system, brain and spinal fluid. As of Saturday, December twenty-third, Colin started an invasive chemo treatment that will continue over the next six months. 

This has been a frightening and difficult time for Colin.  He remains positive and tries hard to keep his spirits high. He is very aware how important his positive attitude is to beating this cancer.

The reality is, however, he has many challenges to overcome. He is a student and third year mechanic apprentice. He will not be able to work for months because of the chemo. This means bills for many of of his medicines and alternative therapies will pile up, as they are very costly and financially beyond his means.

I’m determined to do what I can to help Colin beat this cancer. I’m asking for your help. If you can help in any way we would be so grateful. Every little bit counts. If you can share this with others it would be very much appreciated. 

I sincerely thank you for helping Colin beat this cancer so he can return to a happy, healthy and productive life!!
