This is a fund to raise money for Mickey Adkin's medical expenses incurred from bladder cancer surgery. Thank you for your support.

My husband Mickey was diagnosed with stage 3 bladder cancer in May, 2011. He was self-employed as a plumber and did not have health insurance. Prior to the actual surgery, he had to go to the ER six different occasions to be catherized due to blood clots and had three blood transfusions due to hematuria. Another incident he was admitted for a procedure to scrape the tumor from the muscle wall. We were able to secure a high-premium insurance that would cover some of the cost of the surgery to remove his bladder as well as the costs of the urostomy supplies that he will continue to need for the rest of his life. We have been diligent in making payment arrangements with the hospitals and doctors, however due to the number of bills, there were times when we couldn't pay what they requested and inevitably went to collections. We are continuing to make payments as we can. At this point in our lives we know we will never pay off this debt but are continuing to pay as we can as we are so grateful to the team of professionals who helped to save Mickey's life. I am so thankful to have found this website where there are those who have become a true blessing to others in their time of need. Any and all portions that you may be able to donate will go toward Mickey's medical expenses. For that we will be forever grateful.
