On Tuesday June 2nd, 2020 Daniel bent over at work and when he stood back up, he was in excruciating pain. The pain did not go away by that night, so he went to the ER. At the ER they found a mass on Daniel and told him that it was believed to be cancerous. He has his appt with the Cancer specialist on Thursday June 4th and they confirmed it was cancer and removed the mass that following Monday, June 8th.
The morning of his surgery we found out that his insurance was cancelled because he had not worked for his employer for a full year and did not qualify for FMLA. Between the dr visits and surgery our hospital bills for that round are about $29,000
Cancer Round 2:
At his quarterly CT scan in November they found another 17mm mass on his right lymph node. The doctors think since it came back so quickly and was already that size that more than likely it is in other places of his body that aren’t big enough to show up yet so radiation would be ineffective and that the best treatment option would be chemotherapy. He started chemo on Dec. 14th.
Fortunately, this time since he has been working for over a year, he still has health insurance, but his copays are still high. EACH chemo visit (5 days a week) has a copay of roughly $250. So, we are talking about $1250 per week. His fiancé Destiny is the only one working right now and all her money must go towards paying the bills. They would be so grateful for any help they can get and especially prayers because God can give the most help of all.
