Medical Bills For Lance Cade

For those of you who don't know Lance, he is a wonderful father, son, brother, uncle, friend and a amazing human-being. He has always been there for his family, my family, and countless friends.

On May 30th, 2017, Lance was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer which has spread to his lungs and liver. He started Chemo on June 5th, 2017 and received his Xcela Power Injectable Port on June 8th, 2017 (which is how he receives his chemo). Every two weeks, Lance receives chemo and our daughter has learned to take the pump off so that he is able to stay home on Wednesdays. He has anemia, which drops his blood levels to around 7 or 8 and they should be between 14 and 16. He has received many blood transfusions, but it continues to drop. The low blood levels cause extreme fatigue and he cannot return to work as a Behavior Health Tech at Lincoln Prairie Behavior Health Center. 

Lance is finishing his short term medical leave through his employer and when that is done he will begin short term disability through the Social Security Office. His amazing coworkers did a t-shirt funraiser and raised around $1,100 for him,  but he is still in desprate need for help with his daliy expenses and medical bills. Anything would be a huge help and very much appreciated.
