Cancer Bills, organized by Nicholas Avery

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, lifeboat

As most of you know I have cancer called multiple myeloma and have had it for almost a decade now. Unfortunately medical bills are staggering, especially in the US. I am asking to reach a goal of $10,000 to help wipe out if not most of my medical debt and expenses. I have over 1,000 friends on Facebook.
