My name is Reno, a few years back I developed some compounding memory problems and eventually found myself the diagnosis of Oligodendroglioma, a type of brain cancer that develops from glial cells called oligodendrocytes.
After various attempts with sterotactic radiosurgery with the CyberKnife system, things were and for the most part handled, leaving me to focous on a medicine regiment for the long term to keep things progressing towards an N.E.D ( No Evidence of Disease )
So basically after having a program, controlling a giant robotic microwave gun nuking my tumor like a potato, I now am facing down long term need for some exceptionally expensive medications.
Sadly, what insurance I did have on the tail end of the radiation treatment, without warning and explanation, was terminated. After countless attempts I have never gotten a full answer and getting slammed with high rates because of " frequency of use. " etc. etc. As long as then don't say " Pre-existing condition. "
GoFundMe has helped me in the past get through the radiation costs and keeping on my feet and under a roof, but now I am looking for help with the multitude of medications.
Methotrexate and Gabapentin being the primary ones to handle the cancer and the constant nerve pain, plus a few others. Some of these medications are in the $45.00 PER PILL price range.
The amount is roughly based on estimates from my oncologist and the cost of medication, MRIs, and various treatments that I am expected to need over a roughly year long period.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, if you can donate I would hugely appreciate it as you’ll probably be saving my bacon.
