Stage 4 Cancer: Medical Bills
Organized by: Jamie Numbers-Murphy
One week before Christmas our world was turned upside down. My husband Sean, had a CT Scan of his abdomen. Less then a week later my husband had emergency surgery to remove a mass in his abdomen. It was the size of an orange! We had Christmas in the hospital and stressfully waited for results... Results came back a week later. It's CANCER! Stage 4B Mantle Cell Lymphoma. WHAT? What is this? I've never heard of this before. All I really understand was Stage 4 Cancer! The C word! This doesn't happen to us? How can't this be possible? Well, it's possible, it is happening to us right now! How can you process this kind of news? I thought how can I lose my husband? Then I thought, what is my husband feeling? I'm going to die? When? What happens after I die? My mind raced, it made me sick. It's been a roller coaster since that awful day we were told "You have CANCER"! My husband, Sean it a Veteran! He served our country we love and loyalty! He has work hard his entire life and has raised not only his two children but my two boys! We have insurance thank goodness! But that doesn't cover near enough! We are living tight and don't do extravagant things. I'm hoping to get some donations to help with his medical bills that are outrageous and will be coming for who knows how long. I hate that I have to ask for this help. If it wasn't needed I wouldn't ask. Anything you could do will help... Every dollar and every prayer helps! Thank you for taking your time to read some of our life. Love and prayers for you all!
