Dean's Mantle Cell Lymphoma Expenses

As you might have already seen on Dean's Facebook page, he's getting ready to start his treatment for Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL) Cancer, a type of rare blood cancer.  He is officially the first approved patient for the Windows II treatment (it's the only one in the world).  For the next year, he will have to travel to MD Anderson Clinic in Houston, Texas every month for at least a week.  For some of the visits, he will have to stay for 30 days.

Dean is on short term disability (at 50%) and all his travel expenses are paid out of pocket.  This gofundme page is to help Dean cover those expenses for the next year.  Feel free to contact him if you feel the need to verify the validity of this page before you donate, and to send him your well wishes.  If you have questions you can contact [email redacted].
