Help Dylan Rectenwald Beat Lymphoma

I'm starting this for my boyfriend Dylan, who was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma in January. He is on a 6 month treatment plan and gets Chemotherapy once every 3 weeks at Hillman Cancer Center in Pittsburgh. The good news is that Dylan will be cured by the end of this journey. It is going to be a long one, and we are trying to stay as positive and hopeful as possible.

If you know Dylan well, you know that he is not the type of person that usually asks for help. I've been with Dylan every moment of his battle so far, and have witnessed the realities of how much cancer really costs. His health insurance has been a saving grace, but as months go by, the money has been adding up. 

For example, in February, he went into Neutropenic, meaning his white blood cell count went to 0, and he was admitted to the hospital for 4 days. With that visit alone, we spent about a couple hundred dollars just to make sure he was comfortable and staying positive by bringing him food, books, games, and toiletries. 

We are raising funds to cover the costs of:
Monthly Fertility Banking Costs (Not Covered by Insurance)
Hospital Parking 
% of income lost through Work Disability
$1,000 Deductible

While being treated, he is continuing to write and record music. We will update you when his next song comes out!

I really appreciate you visiting this page. Even $1.00 helps so much! I can't even began to explain how thankful we are for all of the love and encouragement we have received from friends and family. If you can't donate, we understand, and hope that you will keep Dylan in your thoughts!
