Hello. I am sorry that you have to deal with such an emotionally and physically draining situation. I pray that God give you and your family strength to continue to care for yourself and your son, and I pray that God heal your son.
At the moment I don’t have any good ideas on raising money, but, does the hotel you stay at have a refrigerator and/or microwave, or even a kitchenette? If so, could you possibly pre-cook/freeze meals that you can take with you and have in your hotel room? Would it be possible to do the same in the apartment you will be in? Perhaps some of your church members can pre-cook/freeze some meals for you so that you won’t have to spend too much time cooking and can use that time to care for your son or catching up on some of your own rest.
Remember, you have to take care of yourself so that you will have the energy to care for your son.
I’m sorry if I wasn’t much help.
God’s blessings to you.

Jeremy, age 26, has been on his cancer battle for 4 years now. The
funds are waining. I have sold candles and dishclothes to everyone
that I know and lots of people that I do not know. We have had a
fundraising auction. We are getting at wits ends as this not only
is costing him but it is cutting into our housing budget. We are
required to drive 5 hours one way for treatment (Indianapolis IN).
The hotel that ACS (American
Cancer Society) puts in requires $25
dollars to park our car per day. There are meals, hospital parking,
etc., everytime we have a check up and now he has been diagnosed
with Leukemia secondary to Testicular cancer. Which means more
travel and treatment. Next month we are required a 4 week stay in
the hospital where I can sleep at bedside but 4-8 weeks of
outpatient care which will require a apartment where his meals are
fixed by me and daily trips to the hospital.
Any ideas how to come up with needed funds? The church will provide
us with our food from the pantry but we are not going to be able to
use this until we get the apartment.
Thank you for reading this.
