More Info

Since April of 2017 Travis, his family, and those close to him have been on a wild roller coaster. In spring of 2017 Travis went to urgent care to have a lump on his neck checked out at the urgency of his partner Lauren. Hoping for the very best, the family was taken by surprise as the doctors began rushing scans, blood tests and biopsies. The news of cancer hit them all like bricks to the face. How can this be happening? Soon, Travis was undergoing his first surgeries. Again hoping for the best, his family hoped surgery would be enough. Unfortunately it was not. Chemo followed. It was a very difficult time. For Travis, although young and "able to bounce back" this is when he planned to focus on getting his career off the ground. Instead, he had to pump the brakes. His partner Lauren was also just getting her career started after working hard to complete her cosmetology license. Both had dreams of homeownership and growth in their areas of expertise. While the family was able lean on their strong foundation of sarcastic humor and wit, it was difficult for for the family to see Travis become so ill from chemotherapy. As is often required after cancer, Travis has regular scans and check ins, three of which have resulted in yet another surgery. The latest results in March of 2020 came just as the country began locking down due to Covid19 and it seemed Lauren was forced to shut the doors on her new business, LJ Hair Salon, as soon as she got them open. Travis is currently recovering from surgery, looking at a stack of medical bills, and facing six weeks of daily radiation during a pandemic that is affecting their sources of income. This fundraiser exists to attempt to ease the burden of bills breathing down Travis' neck.
