Well, it's been a long few years and I'm still in the midst of it.
In January 2017 I started my Chemo treatments after having a growth removed rom my neck under my right cheek the size of a small peach. After that first 5 month treatment, I have gone through 3 other treatment series, including the one I am in right now. I started the first week in January 2021 with infusions every 3 weeks. I have 2 - 3 more left. The Large B cell Lymphoma continues to seek a home in my body. I'm informed that I should not have this much chemo in my body but it is the remedy available.
The Chemo treatments drains my energy and makes my body feel like I just participated in a marathon and am having to continue in it for days. Exhaustion, total body pains and mussel soreness is what I deal with all the time. I have quite the struggle with standing up but once up for a few seconds I'm able to gain my balance and control. My issues make my moving slow and laborious. I'm not as fast or smooth as I use to be.
I am covered with Medicare and private insurance but the deductible and remainder of uncovered billings are exceeding $10,000 that are left for us to pay. With my medical retirement and Social Security, this debt is only getting a $100 payment each month from us. We desperately need help.
Any and all funds received will be greatly appreciated.
