Jose’s Cancer Story

In September 2017, my husband made an appointment to see his doctor about a lump he felt on the side of his stomach. Little did he know that this appointment would change our lives.

In the past couple of months my husband and I have been in and out of labs, ultrasounds, CT Scans & bone marrow biopsy appointments, all to find out that at the age of 41 he has been diagnosed with Hairy Cell Leukemia a form of blood cancer. He will undergo chemo therapy followed by months of antibiotics and many hospital visits.

With every appointment, procedure, treatment comes a cost. A cost that we didn’t prepare for. Because of this, he has not been able to work and short term disability unfortunately doesn’t provide full pay. As much as I want to keep this to myself and just deal with it, I have asked God to give me the strength to let me allow people to help. Yes, I am asking for help. Whether it’s prayer, reaching out, or helping offset costs associated with this diagnosis. This isn’t the easiest things to do but we are out of options we need to reach out to our friends and family. All donations will go towards medical expenses and keep our family somewhat about water.

Thank you for your support we will keep you updated on his status. We appreciate every single one of you for all the love and support we have received. For all your prayers. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

God is good.
