Elliot’s Cancer Fund

A little over two years ago, Elliot was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma and underwent chemotherapy and treatment to try and place the cancer into remission. Thankfully it worked, and he was able to continue living his normal life following the treatment for 2 years. However, over the last few months, the lymphoma has crept back and taken hold of Elliot again. With its return, the oncologist has recommended a new form of treatment known as CAR-T. What CAR-T is essentially is taking T cells that help fight back disease in the body, and add a new receptor to them to attack the cancerous lymphoma cells in the body. The treatment itself is good, as it will help treat the cancer; however it requires 2 weeks of intense treatment in the hospital, followed by several weeks of isolated home time to rebuild the immune system that will be completely erased as a result of the treatment. As a result, that means over a month of no work, which for blue-collar worker such as Elliot is devastating.


As it usually goes, however, problem after problem kept arising that prevented him from saving much money for emergencies such as this one. This GoFundMe was set up with the purpose of assuring that any expenses that might come up during the duration of the procedure are paid for and allow Elliot some peace of find during his struggle. Any amount is welcome and appreciated! Thank you in advance!
