Luc's fight against Lymphoma Cancer

Luc went to see his doctor on February 21, 2017 because he was having alot of stomache pain & this is the same day that he was diagnoised with Non Hotchkins Lymphoma Mantel Stage 4 Cancer.  Which means the Cancer is in his Lymphnodes & your Lymphnodes is what helps you fight off sickness, Mantel means in more than one place. Luc's been fighting cancer & receiving treatments until July 29th, in Gatineau & they've done all that they can. Since August both Luc & his wife Debbie have been travelling back & forth to Montreal preparing for Stem Cell Treatments & now Luc has to stay in Montreal possibly for the full 8 weeks to have the Stem Cell Treatments. Today is day 4 of his Stem Cell Treatments.  He will spend 4 to 5 weeks hospitalized & 3 to 4 weeks as an out patient in Montreal, he will have to stay close enough to the hospital in case there are any side effects, fever or infection.   Debbie's his rock & she's been by his side the whole time, but the treatments are so costly & all the travelling & her hotel room close to the hospital its taking a toll on them both financially as well as mentally & emotionally because money is so tight they still have along way to go & one of their biggest fears is the money running out in which they're almost at that point now, it would mean Debbie will have to go home & they wouldn't have the money to pay for Luc's 3 to 4 weeks as an out patient the cost of his room, meals, not to mention some of his medications etc... they don't want to spend anytime apart! And they shouldn't have too! After the 8 weeks of receiving his Stem Cell Treatments there will be follow-ups which means they will have to travel back & forth from home in Val Des Monts to Montreal each follow-up is a 2 day stay which means travel expences, hotel rooms & food. Financial Help is needed immediately for Luc's treatments & Hotel rooms for both he & Debbie while he is an out patient &  travel expences & food for both he & his wife Debbie. Cancer is frightening enough without having to worry about the cost of the treatments & all your travelling expences, hotel stays as an out patient, or the fear of not having your life partner along side of you when you know just how important the touch of her hand on yours is or that look she gives you when she's re-assurring you!
