Please help offset/assist with medical & daily living expenses to ease the financial burden. Help Jason in the fight for his life.

My cousin, Jason McClelland, is in the hospital fighting a rare cancer in his kidneys and intestines. The doctors aren't sure yet what type of cancer it is. He was diagnosed the first week of June 2012.

He's 36 and married with two children (a son and daughter. His son is 17, and his daughter is 10). He's a really sweet guy who is fun to be around. He loves his family very much. And I very much want to help him and his family.

Flora Blaylock is Jason's grandmother (my great-Aunt), and has been designated as the beneficiary of the funds raised through this.

Jason doesn't have any kind of medical, life, or burial insurance. So there is a lot of debt built up from this. According to cancer.org, the following are the costs that Jason and his family are most likely incurring:

-Procedures (for diagnosis or treatment, which can include room charges, equipment, doctors, pathologists, and more)

-Lab tests (blood tests, urine tests, and more)
Imaging tests (such as x-rays, CT scans, MRIs, which may include radiologist fees, equipment, or medicines)
Radiation treatments (implants, external radiation, or both)

-Drug costs (inpatient, outpatient, prescription, non-prescription, and procedure-related)

-Hospital stay (which can include many types of costs such as drugs, tests, and procedures as well as nursing care, doctor visits, and consults)

-Surgery (anesthesiologist, operating room fees, equipment, surgeon, pathologist, and more)

Not to mention the expenses that his family are paying for gasoline and food when they visit him. Also, there are the bills that he has at home to pay, to include his visits to the doctor and medicine before he was admitted to the hospital.

The money donated will help Jason and his family to be able to focus more on him getting well, so they won't have to worry as much about the financial end of it.
Because worry and stress can cause problems as well.

Please donate whatever amount you're able to, and please keep Jason and his family in your prayers.

Thank you in advance, for your donations and prayers.
