Help me beat Lymphoma#BernieStrong

Five years ago, I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lympoma. After treatment, I was in full remission until the summer of 2017. I had just married my beautiful wife, Lily, two months before the cancer recurred. Since July, I have undergone two round of different chemotherapy drugs. Neither have been successful, and now I am about to undergo a third round. My ultimate goal is for the chemo to take and to be cancer free. As soon as that happens, I will be eligible for a stem cell transplant.  To get better chances of being cured,  my scans have to show negative results. In order to get through the third round of chemo and get cancer free, I will need to move to the Seattle area. I have the opportunity and have qualified to receive treatment from one of the top five specialists in the nation. My insurance will cover the medical treatment, but none of the living expenses. I will have to move to the Seattle area and be within 30 minutes of the hospital due to any symptoms I feel while getting chemotherapy. This is going to be expensive, but something I really need. I have always worked hard and am not the kind of person who finds it easy to ask for help, but I have no other choice. I have a beautiful wife and a loving supportive family and everything to live for. I know if I get a chance, I can beat this again. If you can see it in your heart to help us out, we would be forever grateful. If you aren’t able to help out financially, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I was in this situation once and I beat it years ago and now facing the same battle for second time. I have lost a few battles this past year but so far not the war. Please help me win the war!!!
