Arty Kojoyian Battles Brain Cancer
Arty needs our help. Three weeks ago he went to the doctor because he was weak and had a tremor and was immediately admitted to CCU (Critical Care Unit) at our local hospital. After a battery of tests (MRI, CAT scan, Spinal Tap and finally a five hour biopsy) the diagnosis was confirmed as Primary CNS Brain Lymphoma.
Meaning, he has a brain tumor. It is in the middle of his brain and it is inoperable.
The treatment will be intense chemo which will require him to stay in the hospital for up to five days for each of seven treatments with a break in between. He will also undergo a bone marrow transplant.
While the outlook is optimistic with this aggressive treatment, Arty will not be able to work while he is undergoing the therapy regimen and will face insurmountable medical bills which will be difficult to pay.
Many people have asked “What can I do to help?” A donation to help offset some of his fast rising medical bills would be greatly appreciated.
Please help Arty to beat his cancer.
I just wanted to give you an short update on Arty. He is home from the hospital and has two days off from chemo. He starts up again on Monday..
I just wanted to give you an update on Arty. He will be entering the hospital this afternoon to start the chemo protocol. This will be the first. He will remain in the hospital until later this week.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.
