Below is a small description of James' journey:
James was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin Lymphoma in 2016 at only 26 years old and has been fighting for good health ever since. He recently underwent a STEM Cell Transplant and is unable to do much of anything for himself (prepare meals, give himself meds, cleaning, be in public during peak hours ect.) due to high risk of infections. He has been such a fighter and deserves to live a normal life with his son.
Lets help take the financial burden of bills and being unable to work off his shoulders so he can focus on recovery and be comfortable!! Anything and everything helps!
Thank you all so much for all the cards, balloons and candies that were sent to james while he was admitted. We are his strength when he is weak!! God Bless ❤
Below is a small description of his James' journey
'In 2016, James went through aggressive chemotherapy for many months and multiple different surgeries to correct the fractures in his sacrum and vertebrae (lower back/tailbone) caused by tumors and the cancer. Things got really bad then they started to rapidly get better! On his final PET scan, he was declared CANCER FREE!! Woohoo!!
6 month check up: the cancer was back in full force. His doctor deemed his type aggressive and referred him to Massey Cancer Center in Richmond VA. The next step in his treatment plan was to have a STEM Cell Transplant.
He went through many more aggressive treatments and procedures to prepare him for his admittance into MCV. They would then ultimately kill his entire immune system and replace his stem cells with the 5 million they harvested from him.
His re-birthday of his immune system was on June 11th and was released from the hospital June 24th! This is the start of the next 100 days of 24/7 post transplant care and a year before his immune system is built up enough to interact in public as you and I do, with minimal worries of infection.'
We pray to the Great Healer that this will be his FINAL fight against this monstrous cancer.

Overland Gear Options for a day trip:
Although you can’t have a list that covers every aspect of every situation, here are some general ideas you can use to expand and/or refine for your personal needs. I have listed them in “somewhat” of a priority, however your personal needs may vary:
This is a pretty extensive list for a “day trip” so you should judge your individual needs and the type of trailing you will be doing, personal space, cargo space, weight etc.
