Garrett Calderon Medical bills

On June 3rd my family received some devastating news that my 19 year old brother was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin’s lymphoma. My mom first noticed a swelling on his neck when moving him back from completing his first year in college. On May 21st, she took him to the doctor to have it checked and it seems like everything has snowballed from there. He was sent to Providence Medical Hospital for a CT Scan, labs and chest X-Ray. Shortly after arriving home from the hospital, the doctor called and said he had to be admitted to the Children’s Hospital and an oncologist would be waiting for us. Test revealed he had two masses one by his collar bone and another mass by his trachea. The hospital continued with more X-rays, daily blood work, CT scans, sonograms, PET scans, and a biopsy. First biopsy was unsuccessful so a second biopsy was performed removing an egg size lymph node near his collar bone. He has since started his first chemo treatment and will continue his chemo every two weeks for 4-6 months. My parents are never ones to ask for help, but i know the need is there. I humbly ask for any donation to help my parents with expenses of medical bills, medications, due to their loss of wages as they have exhausted their vacation and sick leave at work. My parents and family will continue to be by my brothers side and support him during this devastating journey. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for any support and prayers so that my brother can beat this horrible disease.
