This is a fund to help Shane Scott raise money to pay off medical bills for his Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and showing support to a great man who has fallen on hard times. Shane Scott has always been a man on great integrity who would give a stranger the shirt off his back and never ask for anything in return. In this time of need we are asking his friends, family and even those who may not know him well or at all to help in any way you can. Shane has always been the type of person to pay it forward and we are asking you to do the same.

On April 21st, 2011 Shane, who is only 34 years old, was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. As soon as he realized the severity of his condition he immediately started the necessary testing to fully determine the treatment methods and to find the best path to a full and healthy recovery. Since his diagnosis Shane has started chemotherapy and is on his 5th treatment and has had good success thus far. We will find out in the near future if he needs 4 or 8 more treatments to beat this.

At the beginning of April, before his he had and signs of future medical issues, he was offered a new job opportunity that was a great move for his career as well as financially. Like almost all new jobs he had to go through the given trial period that did not offer health insurance but never gave it a second thought since he didn’t foresee the situation he has fallen into. As of June 1st he has insurance coverage but any bills before then have been completely out of pocket and he is now in a debt of $35,000 in such a short time. Shane has always taken great care of himself, worked out religiously, never smoked, eats right and has never had any other major health issues, so the diagnosis came as a shock to Shane and everyone in his life.

Shane is the father of two wonderful children, Hailey who is 11 and Domenic who just turned 3. He is one of the proudest parents you could ever know and when you see him interact with his children you can instantly see they are his whole world. Shane is also a great friend to many and has the type of personality that is infectious and you can’t help but smile when he’s around you. With the many hats he wears he is also an amazing son, brother, companion and a hard worker that any employer would be lucky to have.

Our goal is to raise as much money as we can to help Shane and his family in this time of need. So we ask you to look into your hearts and help in any way you can.. No donation is to little because in times of need even a small amount can help in tremendous ways.

In Shane’s spirit of paying it forward any donations that exceed his goal of paying off his medical bills will be given to a charity of his choice.

Thank you so much again for helping in Shane’s fight.
