Uncle Marks Medical Costs

At the beginning of December 2017, my Uncle Mark was diagnosed with cancer. It wasn’t until recently it was confirmed that he has Renal cell carcinoma with Sarcomatoid differentiation. When they found it, it was spread into his lungs, spleen, kidneys, liver, and neck. He has undergone radiation on the tumor in his neck, however it took 2 biopsies over the time span of a month to figure out where the cancer originated meaning there has been no treatment anywhere else in that time span. Since then it has spread to his back as well. He has recently been diagnosed with diabetes as well and has struggled to contain his blood sugar at a healthy level and is having trouble with his heart and going into AFIB twice. He is currently at UW hospital here in Madison meeting with a specialized cancer team where they will hopefully tell us that he isn’t too far advanced and can work on a treatment plan.

During this whole time, he hasn’t been able to work (he’s a traveling nurse) and we have no idea if or when he will be able to return to the job. Medical bills and expenses have been piling up and there isn’t an end in sight. We could really use all the help we can get to relieve some of his stress (and my families) of paying all of these medical bills, his insurance, and his rent.

Any and every little bit helps. Please and thank you!
