After having symptoms of extreme pain accompanied with huge weight loss Mike decided to go to the hospital. After many tests he was finally told that he has a large mass in his colon and he was then diagnosed with Colon cancer.
He will have to undergo chemotherapy, radiation and then an extensive surgery to remove the tumor in his colon and bladder and repair both. There are many risks involved in this surgery that could cause permanent damage. Recovery will be difficult and he will need daily 24 hour care when he is released from the hospital.
Along with the stress of a cancer diagnosis emotionally, there is also the strain it has on the family financially.
Unfortunately, the hospital stay alone was extremely expensive because his insurance has a 5,000 deductible. He also has doctor visits and co-pays that are adding up. On top of that, Mike just recently had to go out on disability causing more of a struggle to their finances.
Cancer is a horrible disease and what’s worse is to have to worry about finances on top of it.
Any help given is greatly appreciated!
