Treatment and expenses

$820 of $800 goal

Raised by 11 people in 3 months
Back in December of 2017, I started having major health problems. In February of 2018, I was diagnosed with stage IVA Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I was started on chemotherapy shortly thereafter and now, as of July 2018, I am almost done with this part of my treatment. As far as anyone can tell, it's been pretty successful, but the side effects and some other lingering issues of the disease (namely issues affecting my lungs and my immune system) preclude me from going back to work until all my treatment is done. This will include at least two surgeries and possibly radiation therapy in the months to come.

To make a long story short, we've gotten by with help from family so far but have recently hit a wall with expenses related to my treatment as well as the everyday bills. We have been able to keep some things current but as I'm sure you can imagine, not everything.

At this point, I honestly do not know how much money I specifically need, but the recommended amount was $1000, so I will leave it at that for the moment. The money will be used to cover outstanding household expenses as well as the PET/CT scan I'll need in the next few weeks to determine the exact status of the cancer post-chemotherapy. I will need this money sooner rather than later, most likely within the next week or two to prevent a lapse in my insurance coverage.

ANY amount is appreciated. If you can't contribute personally, I understand, so if you could perhaps make others aware of my situation who might be in a position to do so, I would appreciate that as well. Thank you so much for your time and help!

Thank you all for making this a tremendous success so far! I wanted to update everyone and let you know that I was able to get a better idea from my oncologist's office of what I need and when, and it was not as much as I originally thought, so I've reduced the amount requested from $1000 to $800.
