Ed's Fight against Lymphoma

In early 2017 I was feeling sharp chest pains only to find later that the chest pains were to do having Hodgkins Lymphoma. 

I went into the Hospital on June 2017 and didnt come out until August 2017.  During that time I underwent multiple surgeries and tests just to see how far my illness had gone and if I could come back from it. 

I was released after my tests showed what kind of treatment I would be undergoing and for how long. They scheduled me for chemo for the next 6 months and prescribed me with the medication necessary to get through the healing process. 

After the final bills were all sent to me we tallied them together and this was the total we received. Some of them began immediately asking for the bills to be covered despite not having worked in two months. 

This ordeal has changed my life forever, and I believe my mindset and my views are different now and I think it's time for a change. 

Any amount of kindness would help tremendously, even down to just sharing this campaign. My goal is to return that kindness back into the world tenfold and start living a life I can be proud of. 

Thanks for taking the time.
