Superman Strong - Scott Ledman's Battling Cancer

Superman Scott is needing our help!!  Our superman is Scott Ledman who has just been diagnosed with stage III lung cancer.

Scott's story:

Scott Ledman is a kind-hearted, hardworking, fun loving, gentle giant man who enjoys lifting weights, riding ATVs, boating, pickup trucks, and just about everything else the outdoors has to offer.  He works as a Journeyman for the UA Local 602 Steamfitters Union and has a large circle of family and friends who have been the center of his life for 39 years.

In 2011 Scott met his soulmate Christina Hilton and the two quickly became inseparable.  On November 1, 2013, Scott married Christina and the Ledman family grew to six (Scott, Christina, Lexi, Taylor, Connor, and Carley).  The Ledman's are a very active family who enjoys camping, fishing, boating, four-wheeling, traveling, youth sports (soccer), etc.

On February 6, 2019, what started out as a typical winter work day for Scott, quickly turned into a nightmare.  While driving to work, a commuter bus pulled out in front of Scott resulting in a horrific accident.  Scott sustained multiple life threatening injuries and was flown to Prince George's Shock Trauma Center where doctors were successful in repairing most of his injuries, though the road to recovery is long and the effects of the accident have been life changing for Scott and his family.  While being treated at the PG Trauma Center, doctors discovered a large mass on Scott's right lung, as well as enlarged lymph nodes.  After being treated for several weeks for what doctors believed to be a lung infection, Scott was referred to a thoracic surgeon for a biopsy.  After another week of waiting they received the devastating news...Scott was diagnosed with Stage III Metastatic Large Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma.  What initially began as a horrible automobile accident has quickly escalated to a life threatening illness.  As you can imagine, it is a very scary time for Scott, his family, and friends.

Earlier in the same week of Scott's diagnosis, Christina was unexpectedly laid off from her employment as an Accounts Receivable Manager when the office decided to automate the office billing system.  This has only added to the family's overwhelming stress and financial hardship.  They are now struggling financially as the full extent of Scott's illness and accident recovery continues.  Though they have medical insurance, the medical bills are flowing in.

Future updates will be provided whenever appropriate.
