David Boyd's Melanoma Fight

I am David Boyd’s youngest daughter, Rebecca. I would like to raise money for my Dad, David Boyd. 3 years ago he was diagnosed with Ocular Melanoma in his left eye. He went into surgery and had a large tumor and his eye removed. One year later, the melanoma returned in his lungs. It has been a every two weeks trip to MD Anderson for treatment for three years.  The expenses of going every week and every time they do scans and the upcoming Thyroid surgery (6 hour long surgery) to remove lymph nodes and his Thyroid, insurance does not pay for it all. MD Anderson of Houston has been great. I am asking for help for my Parents. The knowledge that these expenses are building is really wearing on my mom as well. This will be a huge blessing whatever amount is raised because this is an ongoing treatment process to keep my Dad around our lives longer. Without these treatments and the prayers from friends, my Dad would not be with us. Thank you so much and God Bless each of you! Rebecca McElroy
