Donna and Joe's Story

Our story started back in the summer of 2012, but little did we know where this journey would take us. We traveled home to Maine and while there Joe seemed to become tired easily and I notice how he had lost weight.

We had a long weekend planned to Nashville at the end of September, but Joe was unable to make it due to what we thought was stomach problems. This happened again in October, but always being in good health we did not connect the dots.
I place my arm around him one night and notice there was a lump in his right side. After many agonizing moments and test we were told he had lymphoma. On a good note the oncologist said he had a 95% chance of full recovery.

We have gone through three cycles of chemotherapy and have three more to go (or less) depending on results. The three weeks in between chemotherapy have up and down moments. The hardest thing is to wait for it to come to a favorable conclusion.
We are trying to glean the lessons along the way knowing that God has a plan for both of us.

There are many other out of pocket expenses not covered by our health insurance such as travel to and from treatment, co-pays, home care, acupuncture, and other types of alternative medicine. Any amount of money that you are able to contribute will be a huge help to us!
