Our friend and film college, Scott Ferril, has bladder cancer. Unfortunately, he has been living with these symptoms for over a year without insurance. He wasn't able to afford a plan that made sense for him and waited a little too long to see a doctor. This prolonged, undiagnosed wait has created possible spread of cancer and there is no way of knowing unless he gets more tests which require a lot of money.
Because he has no insurance, and needs surgery, no insurance will take him. Luckily, he found a doctor that will do the first "look" into his bladder cancer in the next 2 weeks and see if it can be removed easily or if it needs a more serious operation.
This doctor is in Oklahoma City, he is one of the few that takes on non-insured cancer patients. But this is most likely one of many steps to come. If he can't scrape out all of the bladder cancer with this first initial "probe", he has to take on a bigger operation at a later time.
Scott needs our help right away. As a community, friends and colleagues, we can help. Scott needs money to cover his flight to Oklahoma City, the hospital stay and funds for treatment, medication and test. Specifically the CAT scans and MRI scans that can determine if the cancer has spread. This may be a longer journey than expected, so please, share this and donate. Help Scott get the medical attention he deserves.
Scott Ferril is a beloved, and generous friend who never takes life too seriously. And for those of you who know Scott, he will rarely ask for help, so I am here to ask on his behalf.
Please help Scott get through this. Consider donating to his battle with cancer. There are many other ways to help him, if you can't donate money at this time. Text him, call him, and let him know you support him.
Also, his two adorable cats need him to be safe and sound!
