Great news!! A seemingly hopeless situation has now turned into a real chance for Marcus to fight back against his cancer… a true Christmas miracle! 🙂 All the generous donations made by family, friends, and good-willed strangers to our first plea for help (at https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-marcus-swim-past-cancer) came to just over $5,000… which we’ve used to find him some insurance coverage! (This is thanks to the “guaranteed issue” aspect of ACA policies, which basically allows people with pre-existing conditions to get coverage.)
But we’re not out of the woods just yet: his new policy has a $4k deductible and a $9k maximum co-pay… $13k in total. This is still a lot of money to come up with, but the good news is that once we reach that point in expenses, the rest of his treatment is 100% covered by insurance!
