Help Cameron Beat Hodkin's Lymphoma

This is one of the harder things I have had to write in my life. I know so many of us are struggling right now which makes it really hard to ask for help. Many of you know my amazing husband and partner, Cameron Gaunt. Many of you do not know that he has been battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma for the past eight months. We did not want to burden others with this diagnosis from the get go and hope everyone understands that it was nothing personal. It is hard enough to live a normal enough life while battling cancer and not telling everyone around you. Now that Cameron has finished treatment (for now) we are facing the crushing medical debt that comes with a cancer diagnosis. We are still working hard (yes, Cameron is still working fulltime) and plugging away at the debt, but the fact is, the credit cards are maxed and the bills are pouring in. We understand that you may not be able to offer any monetary help, but sharing this with others is still a great help.

A little background: Cameron started figuring out something was wrong around January of 2018. Luckily, we had gotten him on my health insurance in December of 2017, since we had been married in October of 2017. Cameron went to the doctor with exhaustion, issues with temperature control, and swollen lymph nodes. Things escalated quickly as he was sent to several specialists. Many tests and thousands of dollars later (yes, this is a call for money after all) we determined that Cameron had Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The doctors were very positive about Chemotherapy for beating the Lymphoma, and set him up for a six-month regimen. He has come to the end of that six months, and now we play the waiting game to determine if the chemo has worked and what the next steps are. We are extremely hopeful and feel lucky that he has been able to lead a mostly normal life while doing chemo.

I will not go into the state of healthcare in the United States, but as two people working full-time, we are not even scratching the surface of these bills. We will likely never do so, but we could use some help to get through the next few months of health insurance and other medical bills. Any little bit helps as we are appreciative of anything people can spare. Thanks for sharing this with your friends and family, it will all help in the long run. We love and appreciate you all. 

 

Love,

Aimee and Cameron
