Help Elle Kick Cancer - Treatment Fund

Hello friends and anyone kind enough to take the time to read this. Recently my wife Elle Jones was diagnosed with stage 3 triple negative invasive ductal carcinoma which is a very aggressive form of breast cancer. Despite being blessed with health insurance we are quickly finding out the limits to our coverage & how unexpected expenses and uncovered prescriptions costs can easily spiral out of control. Recently I was lucky that because even though we had to go into our rent for the next month, my wife didn’t have to leave the doctor’s office without an expensive prescription that was needed to save her life but somehow the costs was not mentioned until that moment. Unfortunately the prescription will need to be refilled at the end of every chemo visit at that same cost.

Since my wife is currently unable to work (something that she has pride fully done all of her adult life) we are beginning to feel how an unexpected illness can take even a gainfully employed family to the edge of bankruptcy. We are a proud family who raised 4 boys without assistance & we were just beginning to experience the joys of being grandparents. We don't give in easily to the idea of seeking financial help from an outside source. Even the amount we are asking is modest in light of what we are facing but I still hope to cover most of what we need myself.

But when it comes to the life & well-being of your family you find that the list of what you normally wouldn’t do get smaller every day. And open your eyes to the truth of how far you will go to make sure that 25 years turns into 50 more. So in truth I am not asking for financial assistance. I am asking for people who can relate to our situation, for help in preserving a life. A life of much value to those she has touched & for a chance to touch many more. If you find it in your heart to bless our family a donation in any amount will be appreciated and may be the amount that makes the difference. Thank you for your support in advance!

Sincerely,
Ezekiel Jones and Family
