Toby is a super awesome guy in a not so awesome situation.
He was recently diagnosed with stage 2 rectal cancer. He has no insurance and needs treatment NOW.
I am not losing any more friends and family to cancer. Please help if you can.

Toby has cancer, but not insurance. As a single male, medicaid isn’t an option. Help us get him the treatment he desperately needs.
Toby has been diagnosed with ~Stage 2 Malignant Rectal Cancer.
One has to admire someone like Toby, who has continued to work modestly despite incredible pain.
“I make less than $30k a year but love my job and don’t want to leave it. Most state aided help and/or going the disabled to get Medicare route would all require I leave my job.”
Toby actually made less than $25k last year, yet still desires to keep his job. He i just one of many who are uninsured. To qualify for the 133% Federal Poverty requirement to get Arizona state healthcare as a single male with no children, he’d have to stop working – rendering him unable to pay his bills. He cannot use FMLA, because he works for a small business.
At the onset of this project, Toby so far hadn’t even been able to raise over half of the cost of his current medical bills – and he hasn’t even begun treatment.
“As far as my current doc bills go. We have raised about 1500 of
3k and i am really hoping we can get that taken care of before more bills or unexpected things come about. The Food change is already costing me/us a lot to figure out and whatnot. Besides truly healthy eating just being more expensive in general.”
If you’ve ever budgeted on less than $30k, you know there’s not room for more than the essentials. Yet, he still does whatever he can to eat healthy – because right now, that’s the only treatment he’s getting. No matter your political stance, you know that this kind of negligent policy has no place in our country.
The cost of treating early-stage colon cancer is roughly $30,000 a patient. Contrast this with the cost of treating late-stage colon cancer, which is a staggering $120,000 per patient. (source: http://eifoundation.org/programs/eifs-national-colorectal-cancer-research-alliance)
If you aren’t aware, cancer is first staged at 0 and goes up to 4.
Toby desperately needs treatment now. Each day that passes without treatment his condition becomes more life-threatening. It’s not hard to see why people who barely know him have already given to the cause.
Our system is letting Toby down. We hope you join our message that he’s the kind of person that deserves help when it’s nowhere to be found.
