On the 7th of November of 2017, a boyfriend, a brother, a nephew, an uncle, a cousin, and a son to many was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma at 20 years old. This is a form of cancer that limits the body's ability to fight infection (the lymphatic system). He has had 3 biopsies, 4+ blood works, and will begin harsh treatment of endless medications and body weakening sessions, including chemotherapy.  His first surgery took place this past Friday, to remove one of the lymph nodes in order to be sent out for testing and diagnosing.  3 days later is when we found out this horrible news. November 8th he went in for a painful surgery to get a biopsy on his bone marrow as well as import the port in order to get the medications in without poking him a billion times. He will be starting his first roung of chemo tonight November 9th.This is going to be a long process and anything will help with the medical expenses. As Stephen would say, he's at "an expensive hotel."  He is very loved and positive. We are so thankful for any and all of the support given. Any and all donations will go directly to supporting Stephen and family with the medical bills that are stacking up. Words cannot express out gratitude. THIS IS A COMPLETE SURPRISE TO HIS MOM (KRISSY), BROTHER (JOEY), STEP DAD (STEVE) AND MOST IMPORTANTLY HIM! I cannot wait to see their reaction! Let's reach this goal!

November 9th! Stephen's first day of chemo and he's doing amazing. Thank you everyone for your continued support, love, and blessings. This is no longer a surprise for his family but when they found out, they immediately broke down in tears of joy. This wouldn't be possible without all of you! Let's reach this goal! I think we could bump it up a bit <3.

November 10th! The day after the first round of chemo and he is so strong! Hopefully we will be going home today. We reached $9k, just a little bit closer to our goal, and could not be more thankful of all the support. Stephen is so blessed. We came home and we are still getting used to this new "normal." We upped the goal to cover at least half of the bills. Let's keep going strong!
The bone marrow biopsy results came back negative! Meaning the cancer did not spread to his bone marrow. The CT results also came back and showed that it has spread all throughout his body and is considered to be stage 3 Hodgkins Lymphoma. He is so strong and so positive.
