Ernesto’s Fight Against Cancer

My boyfriend Ernesto who is a 25 year old young man was recently diagnosed with cancer. He is a son, a brother and father to our 2 year old son.His story started about 1 year ago, when he went to the doctor to check on a small mass he had on his head which was causing severe headaches and was constantly told that it was a small mass of fat that would go away on its own and it would only keep growing and causing more pain . Fast forward to Jan 15th 2018 when he was rushed to the ER because he suddenly was not able to speak or feel the right side of his body , turned out the mass was eating through his skull pressing on his brain causing him seizures leaving him unable to speak or feel for more than 24 hours . He was rushed to surgery the 17th the following Wednesday where he had TWO masses removed from the left side of his head ( one that was starting to grow behind his ear ) a 3 hour surgery turned in to 7 due to complications , ernesto had both tumors removed and his skull replaced with metal. Upon receiving the biopsy results We were told he has diffused enlarged B-cell Lymphoma cancer. A PET scan was than done to confirm no other organs where affected. Turns out this cancer spread to his spleen also. Chemo will start this week with Rituxan and Methotrexate .

We are now struggling with a lot of different medical bills and the ones that are yet to come that his insurance will not cover and we are hoping you can help , We call on all of our friends and family and anyone who would like to help Ernesto fight this cancer to the best of his ability. I am reaching out to you because any penny will help a ton and my family and I will be forever grateful. We thank you kindly from our family!
