Willie Basse is reaching out for assistance with treatment and medical expenses.
Says Willie: “My insurance company has denied approval for my Oncologist. The lymphoma, Mycosis Fungoides, is now in my bloodstream and I need treatments to stop it, before it grows tumors, or goes into my internal organs.”
A gofundme page has been set up to assist Willie. Donate at this location.
