CANCER's medical expenses

This is one of the most difficult things I ever imagined myself doing, everyone knows I am a hard working , independent and self efficient person, and it is a big deal for me to ask for help or charity.....

     Well, GOD has his ways of giving us lessons!

 I was diagnosed with CANCER last July, a lymphoma in my left armpit, it was such a horrible thing for me; young, handsome and with so much to do in my list, I felt like that was it!
 So much to take and deal with all of the sudden, my whole world came down with my strength and spirit,this one was hard to swallow.......

Thankfully I am a very blessed person, I have a wonderful family, the best friends in the world and a strong heart that wants to keep loving and living, there for; I put myself together and decided to give a good fight and not let this BIATCH bring me down,
for that I had to commit , focus all my time and energy to get treated and follow up with all the procedures I would have to and make sure to rest and focus on getting well, since early June I started dealing with this health problem to a point that I wasn't able to work no more, as you all know I am a self employed guy, I have tried my best to stretch my budget and cover my bills and daily expenses but I am ready to admit that I need help , since I am half ways with this treatment I still have a few more months to go, I will probably be able to get back to work 'till maybe January2015.

I am thankful that I have been able to keep up with every single thing my treatment needs and also to have my mother here with me to help me deal with the everyday stuff, specially after my chemotherapies; when the side effects really impact my daily life and simple things like fixing a meal or keeping my bed clean and neat are a challenge, also every single one of my friends who have helped and being there for me, THANK YOU!

I have  faith and am really hoping to be CANCER free when this treatment is all over, that is why I need to be able to fullfill every need and follow up with my doctor's orders and recommendations, hospital bills,medications, lost wages, and other expenses can add up quickly, even for patients with good insurance coverage. your help will be one of the tools to get me through this.
