My name is Peter Hoss I’m 32 years old and this April I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Stage 3A. In March my Chiropractor found some enlarged lymph nodes on the left side of my neck which then led to me getting an X-Ray which showed a mass near my heart. After that I was then sent to an Oncologist who ordered a CT scan that showed I had enlarged lymph nodes in my neck, chest, and groin. I then underwent surgery to have one of the lymph nodes in my neck removed for a diagnosis. It came back as Bulky Tumor Classic Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. As can be expected this has been a pretty life changing event for my family. After finding out about the mass near my heart I immediately started on a complete change to my lifestyle and diet in order to better my health. Since then I’ve lost 50lbs and am continuing to lose weight. All of these lifestyle changes are only one part of my cancer treatment. After a lot of research and prayer I decided to seek treatment at An Oasis of Healing in Mesa, Arizona. There I will undergo a number of conventional and alternative therapies which my insurance unfortunately will not cover. I believe the treatment at An Oasis of Healing has the best long term outlook for my health which I’m very concerned about as I am both a husband to a wonderful wife of almost 7 years and a new father to a beautiful 7 month old daughter. Both of whom you can see in the pictures below. Another benefit of treatment at An Oasis of Healing is that I will only have to take 6 weeks of time off from work versus up to a year of time with therapy through my HMO which would severely limit our families income.
The cost I’ve been given for treatment at An Oasis of Healing is $79,000 for 6 weeks of treatment. I will also be having to find a place to stay for the 6 weeks while I am in treatment. I want to thank you for taking the time to read this and for any support that you can provide.
(7/20/21) Just wanted to write a quick update here. I will be starting treatment next week on the 27th and hopefully be back home in six weeks. I also wanted to thank all of you who have donated. I’ve been astounded by the generosity and support myself and my family have been given during this bump in the road. I’m so very grateful and want to thank you all.
