September 16, 2017 I went into surgery and they removed the mass, and sent it out for testing, the surgeon said he doubted it was cancerous beging I was only 20 at the time. But shortly after on the 18th they said it tested positive for (Plasmablastic Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.) . That’s when not just mine but my family’s world got turned upside down.
Sense then I had gotten multiple opinions and started chemotherapy treatments that following October,
I was forced to take a unpaid medical leave of absence from work. Leaving my family and brother fire fighters to support me. My mother doing her best to cook me healthy meals, my father helping me pay my bills and bring me to my doctors appointments when I was to I’ll to take myself, my brother doing extensive research trying to find anything that could help my illness, My fiancé by my side nearly everyday when ever she wasn’t working, and my other brother, sisters, and fellow firemen all supporting me and hoping things would get better.
I had a tough 6 months of chemotherapy where I had to stay in the hospital for a week at a time while getting the treatment. Then in February 2018 the doctors told me I was in full remission and could go back to work and have a normal life. My job took me back and gave me a promotion 2 weeks after I had returned. Finally things were looking better for me. I was living my normal life for the next 5 months. Trying to catch up on all the unpaid bills.
After being in remission for 5 months I went for one of the many follow up appointments for a CT scan . My doctor said there was swollen lymph node that concerned him. So he sent me for a biopsy and In a few short days I got the news that the test came back positive for lymphoma for the second time.
Forced to take another leave of absence from work I’m am still left with all the unpaid bills from last time around on top of the ones currently coming in and all my savings have been depleted. My parents struggle to help me pay my bills on top of there own. I reach out to you for help. To make donations to help me pay my bills to so I can continue my treatments and hopefully get back to remission. So I can go back to being healthy, an active fire fighter, and back to my career in the tree service. I thank Anyone who can help me reach my goal and help support in my time of need.
Thank you all for your support to help me pay my unpaid medical bills, transportation cost, and the necessary bills to live (car insurance, fuel cost, groceries, etc.)
