The past few months have been unbearable for him, he has such horrific pain that no medicine or drug is able to help him. In a recent CT Scan, the results show that the tumors, specifically the mediastinum tumor is showing signs of growth. His oncolgist has been asking his health insurance to approve a new PET Scan and they have denied it over and over again for the past 2 months. Alex is getting worse, he is not able to function and doctors fear that the cancer has spread to his bones, there is no other explanation for the excrutiating pain. But he still will not be approved for the PET Scan. His oncologist needs the PET scan results to determine the correct course of new treatment. Without it the oncologist will risk having to start treatment blindly and perhaps inacurately. That is why I have created this fundrasing page. The PET Scan costs $4,000 in Puerto Rico. Alex has no idea that I have created this fundrasing page, he would be so angry!! He is very private and does not want to worry friends and family. Despite his likely disapproval, I care that he gets this test so his doctors can treat him properly. I am begging our friends and family to help him get funding for this critical test.
