“I had just moved back to Vermont from Florida and I thought I had pulled a muscle. It was a tumor pressing on a nerve. At first they said the x-ray was fine and then the nurse came running after me. I had to have 4 ribs, 27 lymph nodes and ½ of a lung removed.” James has had no income for over a year due to his treatment and recovery. As the bills stacked up he was worried about what the future held then he got a call that funds were available. I “broke down crying, it helped me concentrate on myself, have a good attitude even when the radiation was so bad I couldn’t swallow applesauce. You don’t want to have to worry about bills; the support helped me get through it.” James Schumacher - Barre, Vermont
