Because of the treatments, which will consist of 5 continuous days in the hospital every three weeks, we have increased our goal to cover the additional lodging, meals, gas, and any other roadblocks we come across for the next several weeks. While having friends offer their homes, Jess found it easiest to stay at a hotel close so she could be at the hospital quickly if needed.. God has been good throughout this entire process, and we know that no matter what, He will provide.
On April 10th, I saw a family practitioner about a sinus infection due to allergies. Little did I know that a simple question of "can you check this bump on my abdomen?" would dramatically change my life in every way possible.
In the past two weeks, my rockstar wife and I have been in and out of labs, procedures, CT & PET scans, all to find out that at age 33, I have been diagnosed with B-cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
With every appointment comes a cost. With every procedure comes a cost. With every trip, meal, treatment, a cost that we didn't prepare for. A cost that we couldn't
As much as my pride wants me to keep this to myself and just deal with it, I have asked God to soften my heart. To let me allow
people to help. To ask
people to help.
Yes. We are asking for help. Whether it's prayer, reaching out, or helping offset costs associated with this diagnosis, we are thankful for any and all of the support we will receive. The only reason our hearts are where they are is because of the support we've had. Our goal is to help offset 2017 & 2018 Out of Pocket costs, as we know this fight will continue, even past 2018.
So. Again. My family and I say thank you for your support. For your prayers. For your blessings.
God is good.
