Ross Halley medical bill donations

$5,199 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 87 people in 32 months
Just a few short weeks after Ross Halley and Caitlin Lankheit got married they found out some life changing news. Ross went to the dr. And shortly afterwards was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Ross just started a new job not long before this and was not able to apply for health insurance before being diagnosed with testicular cancer. He and his new bride now not only have to go through something so life changing but now they have the burden of having to pay for all of his medical bills out of pocket. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving Ross went in for surgery to have the cancerous testicle removed and found out it had spread to close to his kidney and will have to take chemo for 9 weeks starting in January while missing some work and Caitlin having to miss a few days as well to help take care of him. Any and all donations are welcome to help this young couple pay for his medical bills, and of course we ask for many prayers and good thoughts.

From Ross:

It has been an interesting couple months, full of various ups and downs. Chemo, which went well, came to a halt when it was discovered my tumor was growing larger instead of smaller. After a biopsy, (a process I do not recommend to anyone), it was discovered my tumor was benign and completely unrelated to my earlier testicular cancer. Which means I am now CANCER FREE! Done with chemo and all that! I still have a surgery in a month to remove the benign tumor, but the end is in sight. Thank to everyone who supported me with prayers, messages and donations through this tough time; I love and appreciate every one of you. WE WON!

I Praise our healing God for that Ross' tumor was BENIGN!!! No more chemo!!! Just remove the spot and it will all be over!!! Thank you to each and every person who has said a prayer and loving word or support during this difficult time. MY God is an AWESOME God!!!! He is a healing and loving God. All it takes is prayer and faith that he will work through our doctors and scientists to treat and heal cancer. Praise Jesus!

As some of you may already Ross has had a set back. He had another CT scan about 2 weeks ago to see how the chemo was working. Unfortunately the chemo has not been working and the mass has grown in size. On Monday morning Ross went in to have a biopsy done so they can analyze it and find out if there is a different route they need to take. You can only imagine how this news has effected both Ross and Caitlin and family. We ask that you please continue you to lift them up in prayers and hope during this difficult journey in their lives. Gods got this we just have to keep faith! God bless each and every one of you for your prayers and support!

(Message from Ross)-
Thank you all for the birthday wishes! Again, the support Caitlin, I, and our families have received has been overwhelming. Got my port put in today, so no more getting stabbed with needles as much. Almost there folks. Again, all prayers, shares and donations are much appreciated. The support we have received so far has been nothing short of amazing, and has enabled us to focus on getting healthy and not the other stuff. Again, thank you all for the birthday wishes. Love you all!

Hey Caroline, I just wanted to let you know I've bookmarked this fundraiser page, and I'll do what I can. Our health system has a lot of issues with it right now. For starters, many young adults don't get jobs until they're around 28 due to pursuing doctorate degrees, & naturally can't afford healthcare. I wish Ross and Caitlin the best.

Ross I am so sorry to hear this news. If you need anything let me know I'll do what I can. My father was recently diagnosed with cancer. This book in particular helped me quite a bit in taking care of him. I hope it can give you some comfort through your first treatment. It lists recipes based on any symptoms you might be having which depending on the type of chemo can vary. https://www.amazon.com/Eating-Well-Through-Cancer-Prevention/dp/0981564089/ref=zg_bs_746214_13?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=C032ZG6F1VBQGG1BSQJT
