For those of you who don't know me, I am Jessica Pollock.  I am raising money to help my boyfriend Joshua Allan pay for cancer treatment.

At the end of August this year, Josh went to the medstop thinking he was having a panic attack.  From there he was sent to the emergency room where a CT scan was done on his abdomen.  He was admitted to the hospital because of lesions found on his liver and he needed a biopsy.  After 4 days in the hospital he was told the lesions were cancer.  A week later e found out that the cancer did not start in his liver and the doctors do not currently know where the origin is.  He is currently seeing a primary care doctor, a specialist, and 2 oncologists.  As you can expect the expenses for all of these doctors are not budget friendly.

Before this diagnosis Josh was the one of us who made the most money.  He has since had to step down from a manager position working 50 or more hours a week to a kitchen worker barely able to handle 20 hours a week.  Although I am working, I make nowhere near the money needed to pay bills, doctors bills, and raise 2 girls.  For the past 3 years Josh has been the one who made sure the girls and I were taken care of and now it is my turn to make sure he is taken care of.  It would mean the world to me to be able to guarantee the best treatment necessary to get him better and anything that can be donated will be greatly appreciated.

Any funds donated to this cause will be used to pay the costs of any upcoming appointments and treatments and the remaining will be used to pay the past bills accrued.  

Thank you for your time and donation, even if you are unable to donate prayers or good thought sent Josh's way would be appreciated.

Okay, so we had scans done to look at the progress of everything. Good news nothing new has grown. Unfortunately what was already there has. not big amounts but it's still growing nonetheless. So the doctors now have me on a steroid mouth rinse to go along with a chemotherapy pill. So fingers crossed this stops/ starts to kill the tumors from growing
