In August of this year, Leo Teemant had a lot to celebrate. He and his wife, Amy, had just welcomed a new baby to their family of four, and Leo, having returned to school after working for several years, had graduated with a Bachelorâ€™s Degree in economics and mathematics from Brigham Young University. Life seemed full of possibilities. Amidst all those possibilities, news of cancer was like lightning from a blue sky. Just one week after graduation and while searching for employment, Leo received a diagnosis of stage IV melanoma, a cancer known for its resistance to treatment. The average life expectancy with this diagnosis is nine months.
This is not the Teemantsâ€™ first brush with cancer. Just after Leo and Amy became engaged in 2002, Leo was diagnosed with stage III melanoma. Treatment was successful, and Leo made a full recovery. Now, with a more threatening diagnosis and so much to live for, Leo will need all the help he can get. The diagnosis and treatments are impeding Leoâ€™s job search which leaves the Teemants with a costly and inadequate insurance situation. Leo qualifies for several treatments and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. He is also pursuing options still in the clinical trial stage.
The Teemants donâ€™t have to struggle alone. You can help. Proceeds will go directly to the Teemant family account to support their battle against cancer. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. On behalf of Leo, Amy, and their family…
