Ted Kaschuk Cancer Fund

Ted’s story is one that’s close to home for me. As a cancer survivor myself, I know all too well the challenges that come with fighting this battle. I suffered near bankruptcy just to pay the medical bills, and I never would have made it through if it weren’t for the help of friends. Now, I want to help Ted. 

He knows he has a huge battle ahead of him, that doesn’t just include his health. It’s also going to take every ounce of strength he has, along with a solid financial plan, and support from friends. Right away, Ted reached out to Jerry Jampolsky’s Center for Attitudinal Healing for ideas on how to have the right mindset. It takes a lot of spirit, and a great attitude, to beat cancer. Ted is working hard on both, and I know he’s a survivor. He is certainly an inspiration to me. Here’s his story:

In May, 2020, my friend Ted was admitted to the hospital for stomach trouble. There, they found that he had lung cancer that needed immediate treatment. Ted underwent radiation, and is now undergoing a very long stretch of chemotherapy. During this, he also suffered a stroke in August, and this winter he fell and broke his hand. It looks like 2020 had to kick him a few more times before it ended.

Ted works as a freight handler at Home Depot, and can’t return to work until his hand heals, and he is stronger. He needs help with the considerable medical bills that are accumulating, as well as rent and living costs. As his friend, I am asking you to please help Ted pay his bills while he fights this cancer, if you can.

 “We think we’ve got this life and that we can go on and on, and then all of a sudden you realize you might die tomorrow,” Ted told me. “We don’t realize how quick it can happen.”

It takes a village to help a cancer patient. If you haven’t had cancer, you might not know the toll it takes both financially and physically. I do, and every day I watch others with cancer fight the same war. Please donate so that Ted can continue to win his battle with cancer.
