Help Mike Heiner to beat cancer

On December 19, 2019 Michael was diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma.

Mike has met and overcome medical challenges before.
Peripheral neuropathy in 2004 challenged his ability to walk, affected his balance and left him permanently disabled.
In 2007 he beat bladder cancer. Mike is a fighter and can overcome this latest challenge, but needs financial help from his friends before treatment can even begin.

The Cancer Diagnosis

1 . Mexico, December 2019
After undergoing a number of tests in Mexico Mike was diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma requiring chemo and a liver transplant ASAP , costing anywhere between $200,000-$300,000 US dollars if treated in Mexico.

2. USA, January 2020
After blood tests, MRI, and CT Scans the diagnosis was confirmed, along with liver cirrhosis and hepatitis C. Mike and Stasya are still waiting for the final word on what kind of treatments he needs and if he is a candidate for a liver transplant.

Mike is on Medicare disability insurance. It covers 80% of medical payments and he is responsible for 20% with no limits. Mike is staying in Salt Lake City, Utah with his family, sharing time between his sisters Jill and Kathy and his brother Bill. Jill has helped Mike to find and meet insurance agents looking for options for supplemental insurance, his life partner Stasya has applied for new credit cards and filled the applications for financial aid, there are also some payment plans at the cancer center.
