So this sucks, I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma Jan 3rd 2019, I had two enlarged lymph nodes removed from my groin on Dec 27th 2018 and they tested positive. Unfortunately we just entered the new year so our high insurance deductible just reset.
We also just moved into our new home back in September of 2018 so the savings are low and we are also coming into to tax season. My wife and I are both self employed so Jan - April are our leanest months of the year. Subsequently this is pretty much the worst possible timing to get hit with this.
As many of you know I've had a rocky couple years with my health and this is just the latest crisis I hate having to ask for help but so many of you have showed me such kindness in the past and have said If I need help ask... So I'm asking there's gonna be a lot of tests and treatments for me to beat this thing and it's gonna cost a bit any help will be greatly appreciated. If you can't kick any money in sharing helps to.
This is going to be an ongoing campaign I have no clue what to expect cost wise and income loss wise. I set the goal at 25k but that's just a guess I may have to change that as we fight this. I promise to keep ya'll posted.
For those who don't know me,
I go by Wolf it's been my nickname since I was a kid, professionally I've been an IT guy, Theater Manager, Video Editor, Business consultant, an actor, a director even a writer and up until this diagnosis a part time lyft driver.
My Hobbies have been pretty consistent over the years I've been in and performed in various Rocky Horror Picture show casts and Repo! The Genetic Opera Casts for over 30 years and 10 years respectively, I run the shadow casts at Spooky Empire one of the biggest Horror conventions in the US, I've also worked and been part of the Renaissance Faire Community for over 25 years and ran Wolf's Swordmasters up until 2 years ago. I'm also a bit of an adventurer when I'm feeling well enough to do so going on fossil and gem hunting expeditions. I also really enjoy cooking for my Friends and family and hosting large gatherings. I'm also a giant nerd my home is adorned with all things Star Wars, Star Trek Godzilla, Firefly, Lovecraft and other assorted geek fandoms I did just sell off a chunk to help with costs though.
I am Happily married to my Wife the lovely and Talented Miss Quin for almost 9 years. We share our home with our cat Tink and with which ever friend or family member is visiting. We seem to have house guests every other week :)
My friends and family mean the world to me both blood and chosen. I'm the guy a lot of them come to when they have problems and I enjoy being in that role. I'm fiercely loyal as many will attest.
I've been having some serious health issues over the past 7 years and they've gotten a bit worse I've got both Crohn's disease and Lupus which complicates things a bit with now having to deal with hodgkins so there are additional challenges.
I'm fighting and I know a lot of you will have my back So F cancer, here we go.
