Asking for help is not fun. Neither is cancer. Cancer doesn't care who you are. Cancer doesn't care how much energy you have or don't have or that your chemo makes you exhausted at the drop of a hat. Cancer doesn't care about medical bills or the fact that you need to work in order to pay for everything. Cancer will not wait for everything to "work itself out".
I have seen many fundraising campaigns where people are asking for money for trips, vacations, etc... I'm not hating. More power to them. But I notice that those campaigns get thousands of dollars in donations while people going through medical disasters or extreme hardships get nothing. I'm looking for some compassion right now. I hope I find it.
I am a 47-year-old US Air Force veteran and was otherwise healthy until I was diagnosed with Stage III Follicular Lymphoma 3b in April of this year. A PET scan revealed that it was throughout my entire lymphatic system and needed aggressive treatment. I started chemo a month ago and the fees are building up. Plus, the effects of the chemo and the medications associated limit my ability to leave the house... which means I am unable to work for a while.
Any help would be greatly appreciated and NEEDED. I am fighting for my life here and just trying to make it through chemo and back on my feet. Every dollar counts. Yes, every dollar counts. Please help & SHARE.
