Battle Against Cancer

Hello everyone,

My name is Stephanie.

Last month I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I have just recently finished my 2 chemo treatment (which was delayed a week because the chemo drugs destroy my immune system so badly that I end up having nothing to defend against viruses or bacteria). My 3rd treatment was suppose to be in 2 days but was delayed again for the same reason and now I have to take injections (on top of all the other medications) to stimulate my immune system so I can continue to keep getting treatments. Which is great except that they are really expensive and are an unexpected cost that I was not prepared for. If you can even be prepared for this kind of thing.

It has quickly become overwhelming and I am finding that no matter how I try and work it I am unable to shoulder the costs of treatment, the injections being one of now 5 medications I have to take never mind travel (gas) and parking. Even with the help of family it has quickly become too much to handle. Honestly, I hate that I even have to ask and I feel awful even starting this GoFundMe, I find asking for help very hard to do, but this situation has left me no other options. I am hoping to raise 7,000 to cover all the necessary costs of treatment and recovery.

I am saving everything that I have but I've already blown through all my savings, this was just a big development that I wasn't ready for, and I feel no one ever really is.

Whether you are able to donate or are able to share this so that someone else might see it and be able to donate, you will have mine and my families unending gratitude. Thank you.

This will not be an easy journey, but every bit will help make it a bit more tolerable.

Thank you for taking the time to read through this. Have a wonderful day.
