After enduring months of excruciating knee pain, IBEW 1245 member Kyle Bennett, who works for PG&E in Los Padres as a T200 TCOM Tech, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Clear Cell Sarcoma in April. Due to the size of the tumor, a full knee replacement was completed, and a portion of his fibula and tibia bone removed due to the cancer’s invasion. He is diligently undergoing extensive physical therapy to regain strength and relearn how to walk independently.
The next phase is radiation treatment, five days a week for six consecutive weeks. Unfortunately, the specialized radiation machine he needs is only available in Sacramento, a three-hour drive from their home. This means additional medical expenses, including a significant cost for the treatment, out-of-pocket expenses, and insurance deductibles — and insurance will not cover housing accommodations near the treatment center.
Brother Bennett, his wife Jenny, and their three daughters need our help during this challenging time. Please contribute what you can using the GoFundMe link below.
