Hi Dave,

As you know I have been on immunotherapy for over six years. My last scan showed a cluster of enlarged lymph nodes…now these could be reactive to an infection ( my teeth are a mess) or a sign of cancer progression. Plus the side effects of Immunotherapy are kicking my rump. Rashes, my thyroid doesn’t work, bad joint pain & I have almost fallen a few times. I haven’t worked in 2 weeks and skipped my last treatment. I see the Pallative care folks Nov 12 to hopefully back down some of these side effects.

I have applied for FMLA via my job problem is I have almost zero sick or vacation time left. Mike is working but Home Depot wages aren’t going to cover rent, utilities & food. I can keep medical insurance as long as I pay my current premiums to my company.

A good friend has started a gofundme for me: https://gofund.me/68a28a52

Thanks,
Jean

There aren't that many people on the internet who i want to help more than Jean "Geekbabe." She seems like one of the most selfless and empathetic people on the net. Hope this helps her.

Not to state the obvious, but it won't hurt to go past the goal either. Whatever the stated goal is, it'll certainly fall short of what's actually needed.
