Please help me to get a few things I need to make my Cancer fight a little less daunting.

 My name is Marvin Haak Jr. In October 2010 I was diagnosed with a rare form of Colon Cancer ( Melanoma of the colon ), This is an aggressive cancer that does not respond to conventional treatment methods well. I have had three surgery's so far as they find cancer tumors and the left side lower Lymph Nodes removed, which has caused Lymphedema. My insurance only covers 70% of my conventional treatments and 0% of alternative cancer treatments, Please, I need your help.

 The Goal

 The goal of this campaign is to help alleviate some of the financial burden off of Marvin. The stress of worrying about money for the costs that insurance does not cover and other items I will need for this cancer is taking my focus away from what should be my main job, healing myself.

 Any funds raised will go for my current needs, ( which I will list below ) and uncovered medical costs and alternative treatments. My savings are all used up now.

What We Need

 I need a custom brace for my left leg to help with walking and help ease some pain when walking, Lymphedema has set in so I have to be fitted for a custom brace made for my leg. Insurance will not cover. Cost $685.00. I also need 3 pair compression stockings, Cost $65.00 ea. $195.00 total. I also need to move to a place that is ground floor, My current apartment has stairs and I have fallen on them a few times now, I have found a few places but I don't have the security deposit I need. $600.00. I am looking at also at getting a Huron Juicer to help with my nutritional needs. $400.00. The brace is the main and first concern.

The Breakdown:

Custom Brace: $685.00

3 Compression Stockings $65.00 ea. $195.00

Security deposit: $600.00

Huron Juicer $400.00

Any extra will go for uncovered medical cost.

Fact is I have $19,800.00 in uncovered medical bills right now, so any extra will be used to pay down this amount.

I truly appreciate any donations you may make. Thank You
