Cancer Treatment for Andy Fine

$30,090 of $45,000 goal

Created October 3, 2018
In March of 2018 dad was diagnosed with Melanoma, within weeks the doctors at Mayo Clinic discovered that the cancer was not limited to his skin. Malignant Tumors had formed inside his neck and chest near his heart. 

After 8 months, 2 major surgeries (including having his chest sawn open to remove the tumor in a vein near his heart), hundreds of hours of appointments and weeks of hospital stays, the doctors believe they have successfully removed all the tumors, however, the Melanoma has metastasized and needs to be treated. Because chemo will not treat Melanoma and radiation isn't a good option either my dad will have to get alternative treatment that is not covered by his insurance. 

The treatment he is going to get gives him a better than 80% chance of surviving past the 2 year mark, compared with just a 40% chance when using immunotherapy. Immunotherapy can also cause major heart issues. Dad and Mom will be heading to the Hope 4 Cancer center Monday October 8th to begin treatment with a three-week stay. The estimated total costs for treatment is $45,000-60,000.

My sister and I are starting this campaign to ask you first and foremost to pray for my dad and my mom as well as our whole family. Secondly we are asking you to donate to this fund to help our parents pay for his treatment. 

Our dad is beloved by so many including my mom, sister, myself and our spouses, but especially by his 9 grandchildren. Thank you in advance for your help, we love and appreciate you.
