Jose's Cancer Treatement

- When donating you can updated the tip to GoFundMe to 0

If you blink life will change in an instant. One minute my friends were planning their future together, and the next cancer struck. Many of you know Jessica and Jose, and many of you like me know how quickly they come when we need them, now they need us. Jose has been suffering for the past two months and we really didn’t know what it was until recently...he has acute Leukemia and the treatment is going to be long and costly. Jose cannot work due to the severity of his pain at this stage, and neither can Jessica due to taking him to treatment and being by his side. "The costs of diagnosis amounted to $3,167 (1995 US$). Remission-induction treatments cost on average $46,387 and harvest of bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cells costs $6,491. The costs of the transplantation varied between $25,531 and $44,087. Costs of follow-up amounted to $4,167. Relapse treatment, mainly consisting of reinduction therapy, costs on average $24,338. The total average weighted costs of AML patients amounted to $104,386. Treating AML patients is very expensive, and major reductions in costs are not expected in the next future. " Being able to afford treatment is the different between life and death. We are asking for donations to help with the cost of his cancer treatment , and if nothing more prayers and uplifting words. Please share this so that others may give and offer encouragement.
