Raising money for cancer treatment

5 years ago I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Chemotherapy and radiation were thrown at it pretty aggressively but to no avail. By July 2014 I was given a 10 month expiration date, and offered hospice. Luckily around that time I found out about a Canadian remedy and with help from family was able to start full bore, what did I have to lose? By taking a gram a day for months on end I saw significant improvement. CT and MRI showing tumor reduction, things were looking up. 18 months ago I moved to Whatcom county, lost my availability to access treatment, and am now at the point my tumors are starting to show it. I don't think it would take the same loading dose but a maintenance dose would absolutely put things back on track. I'm embarrassed talking about my cancer, that's why most of you haven't heard alot of details from me during this time in my life. I've become a Really good hermit, ironic really. I'm embarrassed what cancer has done to me, what it is going to do to me, and frankly asking for any kind of help, but I'm at the point where I'm out of options. There is a local shop which has very reasonable rates to access this treatment, but being out of work for so long my income hardly covers half of my rent. I'm asking for help getting started again, even 8 months worth would be immensely helpful in showing improvements and helping me fight my way back to my feet. Thank you all so so so much for even reading this.
