My husband has cancer.
Ben is our life-loving, compassionate, generous, dear husband, father, and son. He means the world to us, and now he needs our help.
On October 1, Ben had urgent surgery to have a tumor removed. It turns out the tumor is malignant.
My beloved Ben has bladder cancer.
We are a family who love to work hard, play hard, create, connect, discover and encourage each other and everyone to follow their dreams. To live out your passions. To express yourselves and have a total blast in the process. We love life and we love sharing that joy with everybody.
Ben has always put family first. He is a self-starting entrepreneur who works from home so our young family can be together as much as possible. I am a self-employed drama coach for high school students. We have a modest income that covers usual expenses.
But these enormous hospital bills are staggering, and we cannot bear the weight alone.
Our health insurance coverage begins January 1, 2014. Like millions of Americans, we have planned to sign up under the Affordable Care Act for benefits. The marketplace opened October 1, which ironically was the day of Ben’s cancer surgery.
We asked Ben’s doctor if his surgery could be put off until January. “Absolutely not,” was the answer. We went ahead, knowing it could be the difference between life and death.
Now we face cancer treatments and mounting bills not only for the urgent testing and surgery, but for whatever lies ahead that we must do to save Ben’s life.
Please help us if you can. We need you. Please give whatever you can to help us pay for these massive medical bills.
Together we can create a miracle.
Thank you and God bless.
With deep love and gratitude,
Carrie, Ben, Logan and Paige Sayer
