In early August of 2018 our friend Steven Stump was diagnosed with a very rare form of Non Hodgkins's Lymphoma. This particular type of colon cancer is not operable and must be treated with chemo therapy. After some initial treatment in the Quad City's area, Stump has decided to move to a more aggressive form of treatment at the Mayo Clinic.
Stump is facing a lot of financial strain right now. Over the next few months he will be paying out $17,000 in deductibles and co-insurance. In addition there will be 6-9 more trips to the Mayo Clinic and all the travel costs associated with that. On top of all of this he is being forced to miss a lot of work so his income is significantly down at a time when he needs it the most.
My hope is that together we can raise enough money to at least cover his out of pocket insurance costs and remove some of the financial stress so he can focus on his treatment and getting well.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
