Stage 4 CANCER

--PLEASE READ
Sorry if its confusing to understand. .

My dad was diagnosed with stage4 cancer in his liver and right hip bone, the beginning of December. I've wanted to start a gofund me account then, but still the name of cancer has been unknown as well as other information. It has been never ending test; go get another xray or go get a catscan, blood work, colonoscopy biopsy, MRI and so on..however they have mentioned alot of options. I was explained that not all cancer is textbooks. They say its like a puzzle and they dont have all the pieces. He had a liver biopsy that was inconclusive it did not reveal what the cancer was..it said it was a neuroendoquin tumor tho. He recently was admitted in the hospital Friday January 8, 2016 because his feet and legs swelled so fast and so severe over night. He was instructed to go to the ER. Since he's been in the hospital he has declined. They did a scope and nothing showed in his esophagus which is good news that there was no tumor. ..but when they tried to do his colonoscopy they couldnt proceed, which is so disappointing because thats where possibly some more answers could be. His liver and kidneys arent doing so well. He's too sick and they have to start Chemo tomorrow January 13, 2016. Which is ASAP! !! The doctor explained it spread so rapidly through his liver they cant cure but they will try to shrink the cancer cells. Also the doctor said he has 1 in 5 chance to successfully shrink the cancer but also has 1 in 5 chance to die sudden from Chemo. They said his heart could stop from the Chemo. He is so sick. His right hand and wrist is swollen now which is new. His legs are even more swollen. He is getting a pick line. He receives a shot daily in his stomach to prevent blood clots. He's weak. His urine is 24 hours monitored, he's on a bed alarm. He coughs when he eats and swallows liquids or food. The cause is still unknown for that. Alot of the issues have been money, everyone has wanted money. My dad obviously isnt capable of working, so he doesnt have any money. So if we were rich they may have done more for him up until now ;) but thats not possible. I have came to alot of dead ends trying to get appointments set up for him with no insurance and no money for upfront costs. So with that being said there isnt any money set aside for a funeral for if and when that time comes :(
