Ken Hudson Campbell, known for his role as Santa in the movie “Home Alone,” is facing a difficult battle with cancer. In an effort to seek financial assistance for his treatment, Campbell has started a GoFundMe campaign.
Campbell, who has also appeared in other beloved classics such as “Groundhog Day” and “Armageddon” during his 35-year career, was diagnosed with cancer in late October. The tumor, located on the bottom of his mouth, has been encroaching on his teeth, making it necessary for a 10-hour surgery to remove it. Unfortunately, this surgery will also involve the removal of a large part of his jawbone.
In addition to the surgery, Campbell will undergo reconstructive surgery, as well as rounds of radiation and chemotherapy. The recovery period is expected to be lengthy, spanning around six months. The financial burden of these medical procedures is significant, especially considering that Campbell lost his SAG-AFTRA health insurance in January 2022 following the pandemic.
Despite finding new insurance, Campbell anticipates substantial out-of-pocket costs. Hence, he turned to GoFundMe to seek support from friends, family, and fans. The GoFundMe campaign aims to raise $100,000 to help cover the expenses associated with his treatment.
As of now, the campaign has reached a little over $58,000 of its $100,000 goal. The outpouring of support from the community is heartwarming, but there is still a need for additional contributions to ensure Campbell receives the care he requires.
The statement on the GoFundMe page highlights the potential impact of the surgery on Campbell’s future employability. It emphasizes the importance of financial assistance to allow him to focus on his health and spend quality time with his loved ones.
Facing a cancer diagnosis is a challenging and emotionally taxing experience. For Campbell, the support he receives through the GoFundMe campaign will not only alleviate the financial stress but also provide him with the encouragement and strength to fight his battle against cancer.
