Stage 4 Cancer Won’t Beat Peter!

On October 1st, Peter was diagnosed with Colon Cancer. He was rushed to surgery whereupon they removed part of his colon but could not remove the cancer that had spread to his liver and surgically unreachable areas. On October 11th he was able to go home but with the news he had end stage 4 cancer. He opted to fight and on November 8th was offered a cancer treatment plan consisting of a targeted experimental chemo treatment. Since then Peter has been rehospitalized due to complications and pain. Fortunately he was there when his heart stopped, without warning, due to an adverse reaction to his treatment. After recovering from this Peter started a different chemo plan to keep the cancer stable. Even though Peter pays $2,300 monthly for health insurance, it doesn't fully cover the bills that are pouring in and he had over $22,000 in unpaid medical bills. He's managed to get that amount down to $10,000 and needs some help. Peter has 3 children, all of whom live at home and are dependant upon him and the business he owns and operates. Through all of this Peter has not stopped fighting and has a positive, gracious attitude - fully placing his trust in God. Recent test results show that cancer in his liver is shrinking! He has appointments coming up to see if he can take off the defibrillator he's had to wear since his heart stopped and to see if he's eligible for a new chemo regimen that is specifically designed to eradicate the type of cancer Peter has while also targeting dormant cancer cells. We'd like to give our kind friend peace of mind and help with his medical bills. The donations collected through this go fund me will go entirely to pay off Peter's medical costs. Thank you!
