Man with rare cancer sees flood of support after coverage is denied

Residents across the region and the alma mater of an Elmsford man with a rare form of cancer are doing all they can to help him raise $60,000 for a possibly life-saving treatment that his insurance company will no longer cover.

At first, Jason Pryce was told his insurer, GHI, would pay for the treatment, but without warning, it changed its mind and denied coverage. GHI said it wouldn?t cover it because it is experimental.

That hasn't stopped hundreds of caring strangers from donating to help save Pryce's life; an act that he and his mother, Sandra Pryce, call "overwhelming."

Along with the donations from strangers, Pryce's alma mater, Iona Prep, said it will host two fundraisers to help get him the treatment he needs.

Also joining his fight is Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.), saying she will work on his behalf to get answers from the insurer about its sudden decision to deny the treatment.

A fund has been set up for those wishing to donate to help Pryce receive the treatment he needs.

Donations can be sent to:

The Jason Pryce Fund C/O Chase Bank 566 North Broadway White Plains, NY 10603
