Tom Cheney's Cancer Care

THE STORY:

My father, Tom Cheney, is only 56 years old. He's been self-employed for the last 25 years and has never had comprehensive health insurance.

While his income has allowed him to pay for basic care, the cost of individual coverage precludes many self-employed to never purchase it. He's typical in that he puts off seeking treatment when possible and only going when he's very sick. A symptom of being uninsured.

Nobody deserves to go bankrupt for an illness, yet that is the leading cause of bankruptcy in the United States.

He was admitted to the emergency room July 19, 2010 and diagnosed with Lymphoma July 21. his treatment starts today but his journey is just beginning.

Having experienced a similar situation with my step father several years ago, who was also uninsured and self-employed, I know the costs have already begun to accrue. I want to be sure he has the best care he can get, and that he has the ability to pay for basic needs while he is unable to work.

Any amount of assistance is greatly appreciated.
