In the very early hours of Tuesday, he was transferred by ambulance to MD Anderson in Houston and literally rushed straight to the ICU. He was diagnosed with a RARE form of Leukemia (Atypical Chronic Myeloid Leukemia) that was caused by a neoplasm he was born with. It is asymptomatic until the ages of 70-80.
Although he does have insurance, once he becomes outpatient, he will need to be close to MD Anderson for treatment and care. With living 3.5 hours away, the drive back and forth for the the next few months will be too much for him. Being self-employed, it is almost impossible for Mom and Dad to work while Dad is receiving treatments and Mom being his primary caregiver.
This fund is used to assist in lodging and travel expenses, prescriptions that insurance won’t cover and basic bills that cannot be covered due to being in the hospital.
I have always seen him as a superhero. He wasn’t suppose to get so sick so quickly. He is suppose to see his grandkids grow into young adults. He’s suppose to be there to take care of Mom. No donation is too small. Please consider helping our Father. Thank you and God bless!
