The Stephen Loszewski Benefit Fund was created to assist with the bills not covered by insurance. Anything helps!

Stephen's family has been an enormous support structure for his recovery. While they have been very open to talk about their emotional and physical struggles and triumphs, they have (with good reason) not talked about and are still very reluctant to mention the financial struggles associated with fighting Stephen’s cancer for over a year. If you have been following Stephen’s journey, you know that certain medicines were not working for Stephen, and caused life threatening allergic reactions. This caused them to switch to a new drug that is not covered by insurance since it is not FDA approved. This also meant that there was no “payment plan” to be had with the hospital for this portion of treatment… payment for the drug is due before the drug is even administered. The cost of this drug is in the thousands, and not paying was obviously not an option. Greg and Kristi (Dad and Mom) have been carrying this burden within themselves, and only just mentioned it recently to us, their extended family.

To assist with the financial struggle of doing anything and everything to help Stephen fight the cancer, his Mimi (grandmother) and Ciocia (aunt) have set up a fund to help raise money to assist with Stephen’s medical expenses. Consider this: while there are considerably more, if 100 of the people following this journey on CaringBridge donated just $10, we would instantly have raised $1,000 to go towards Stephen’s medical expenses.

We appreciate your time, and anything you can contribute will make a difference for this family.
