Help Andrew Beat Lymphoma

About a year ago, I was diagnosed with Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma (CTCL), a rare form of non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. This is a blood cancer that affects my skin with raised rash-like patches. While this kind of cancer has a very high survivability rate, in order to keep it under control and prevent it from both spreading and worsening, I need regular dermatological treatments and hematological tests. Up till about a month ago, I was covered by Medicaid, but our family's income is now too high for me to qualify for this coverage. This has required me to purchase new health insurance on the marketplace. The frequency and type of treatment I need necessitated the purchase of a high-premium low-deductible plan, which overall will increase our family's expenditures on my healthcare from roughly $0 per month to around $1000 per month. I am trying to raise $15000 to cover the costs of insurance premiums, co-pays, and deductibles for the next year. Raising these funds will allow us to cover the costs of treating my disease and not experience extraordinarily high levels of financial stress as I try to beat this thing. My hope is that the new treatments I will be receiving over the next several months will help get my CTCL in check and make it so my expenses will not be as burdensome in the years to come. I would be happy to answer any questions anyone may have about my disease or the kind  of treatment these funds will help me cover. I, as well as my partner Erin and our boys Idris and Emile, thank you for your kindness and generosity.
