Mike has been unable to work since he was diagnosed and unfortunately, his job did not offer any health benefits or leave, so he is currently not getting a pay check. Also, my sister, Kim, has had to cut back on her hours and schedule so she can be available to take Mike to his treatments. This has caused a financial burden on them to cover living expenses as well as all the medical costs which have to be paid up front before the chemo treatment is started.
Kim and Mike are doing everything they can to handle this situation on their own. They have applied for grants and financial assistance but have not received approval or support and cannot wait to start the treatments.
Mike's first chemo treatment is Monday, 12 Jun 17. I would really like to raise some funds quickly to help with the current medication cost and chemo treatment. But the most expensive cost will be when he has the bone marrow transplant in Sep or Oct 17.
The past month has been a stressful and heart breaking time for both Kim and Mike and the last thing they wanted to do was ask family and friends for help. So I am asking for your help and I know they will be appreciate all your love, care, support and prayers.
Since I don't know all of Kim's friends and co-workers, I would appreciate if you could get the word out that Kim needs your care and support.
