Adam’s dedicated family and friends are uniting to help him and Alicia pay for these unforeseen medical expenses through this fund.

With just a slightly swollen lymph node in his neck, and a few persistent symptoms of poor health, Alicia took Adam to the doctor in order to get some answers in September 2011. Within a few short days after a series of invasive tests and a surgery, Adam was diagnosed with stage 4-B Nodular Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. This diagnosis, after a second opinion through a Saint Louis cancer treatment specialist, requires approximately 5 months of chemotherapy which was initiated on October 11, 2011.

We as a family are thankful in the doctors’ swift actions taken to administer chemotherapy. So far, the treatments have managed to alleviate some of the symptoms which caused Adam such discomfort and distress. It is November 22nd, and he has just received his 4th treatment in a series of approximately 10 sessions. Soon we’ll be able to determine through blood work the progress made by chemotherapy in attacking the cancer, and we pray for successful results, but are thankful in the progress made to date.

We know that with the right support, strong-willed attitude, and drive to continue fighting that Adam will beat this! For all, this is a reminder to be grateful for each day we are given. Adam is a 30-year-old husband to Alicia and father of one (Mariah) child, age 11.

Although Adam does have healthcare insurance, he will miss a considerable amount of time from work, which will leave his family with an ongoing financial burden. The expense of numerous co-pays, sophisticated tests not covered by insurance and travel to and from specialists for chemo visits and check-ups must be paid out of pocket, and that is why we are asking for your generous help and support. Medical bills should be the least of Alicia and Adam’s worries and we as friends and supporters can vow to do our part and take these head-on.

Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. Every donation is cherished and we sincerely thank you! Your support also involves passing this message on via word of mouth, which we greatly appreciate as well.
