Help Luke Rivera get by with Hodgkins Lymphoma

For those of you who may not know I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in July of 2018.  I didn't really tell many people outside of close friends, and family.  I just didn't want people feeling as though they had to treat me any differently because I had cancer, and as far as I knew I had one of the "easiest" cancers to beat, and I was very confident in doing so.  After chemotherapy, and radiation the CT scans had shown nothing.  Assuming I was good and clear I went about my life.  The only thing upsetting me was the loss of my hair (which never came back properly), and the stacks of bills.

   August 2019, I went in for another CT scan follow up, and the scan showed an enlarged lymph node in my leg.  After the surgical biopsy the results came back as Hodgkins again.  The doctors are thinking I was closer to a Stage 3 rather than the initial Stage 1 or 2 they initially thought I had started with back in 2018.  

   I will be undergoing chemotherapy, and radiation again. This time though money is extremely tight, and I am going to be moving in with family for a while till I can pull myself together again, and get back on my feet. I am at an all time low.  I've sold most of all my valuables to pay the bills, but now I am overwhelmed. I never wanted it to come to this to where i'm essentially begging for help, but I need it.  

   I can't thank my friends that do know about my situation enough! They have been at my side, and helping me in any way they can going way out of there way to help me enjoy life as much as possible, and keeping me included in activities.  Thank you all so much! Much love to you all!
