A few months ago I noticed something wrong with my throat. It felt like it was swollen. Hard to swollow and choking. To make a long story short I had no choice but to go to the hospital becouse it was getting hard to breath. I found out that I have stage 4 throat canser. I now have a trake in my neck so I can breath. I think there going to do do surgery then radiation and chemo. My problem is I'm preety much alone with no help. My health insurance is going to run out next month, My car is about to be repod, car insurance is almost up ect... And I cant work to pay for any of it. This is my last resort. Believe me. I did'nt want to do this but I can't think of any other way. I'm down 25 pounds and week. I don't know how I'm going to pay for meds. or anything else. If anyone can help It would really be a life saver.
Thank you and I'm sorry,
I’d like to update you all on my conditions.
I am currently in the hospital receiving my 3rd round of chemotherapy. They’re long and they’re tough.
My hair is beginning to fall out, but that is the least of my worries.
After this round, I will have two more rounds to go. So I’m in the hospital for a week getting my daily treatment, then I go home for a week. After that, I go back in the hospital for another round... and so on and so on. Thereafter, I will begin radiation and I will still also need surgery. I have a long road ahead of me. Very long.
On top of everything that I’m physically going thru, I’m going thru it mentally as well. I am no longer living in the home that I was renting. The owner has decided to fix and sell it, but he is allowing me to temporarily stay in his trailer. It’s not the greatest, but I have a roof over my head and food in my belly and for that, I am thankful. Unfortunately though, I still have the port in my throat, so I’m worried about infection due to these living arrangements.
I am obviously still unable to work and I’ve yet to be determined eligible for Social Security. So right now, I have no income other than a debit card (a.k.a. food stamps), thru welfare.
My car payments are behind and my insurance is about to lapse. I’m in extra bad shape right now. I need my vehicle to get me to and from the hospital for the chemo, to get to my doctor visits, to pick up my prescriptions, to go food shopping, etc. When I am finally able to work again, I’ll need my vehicle to do so. I can’t have “Rides by Dave” without a ride, right?! (Smile)
So my friends… I am once again putting my tail between my legs and turning to you for your help. I don’t want to buy a boat, get porcelain veneers or even go out for a fancy dinner… I want to live. I need to find a stable and cleaner environment to live in (much sooner, than later) while I’m struggling, fighting this cancer. I want to be able to not worry about my car insurance being dropped or my car being repossessed.
If you could find it in your heart to help me out, I would so greatly appreciate it. I truly, truly need help. I feel like this cancer is taking so much away from me already. My home, my vehicle, my pride, my strength………
If there is anything, anything you can do to help me out, please do. There is no amount that is too small. I have nothing… so whatever you find in your heart to give me, will be all that I have.
Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart.
If you've applied for social security you should have it by now I know for a fact it's an automatic approval for throat cancer something isn't right here please do not send me any more emails because I believe you may be scamming people. And 50something more radiation treatments doesn't sound right David had 39 and I know others with throat cancer and 40 was the most.
You are in my prayers always!...Hang in there....Know you can beat it! ♥
God bless you Dave. Those that know what you have been going thru truly believe in you. We also know that you need all the help you can get. Hang in there and don't pay attention to the negativity.
I would just like to thank each and every single one of you, from the bottom of my heart, for not only donating to my Uncle, but for showing him compassion. Most of you are complete strangers... and that truly has restored my faith in humanity. I hope to meet you at the fundraiser in June when we down. Again.... thank you for helping us, help him. XO
