cancer medical treatment

Finally finished with radiation and chemotherapy.
The treatment aged me and I lost 45 lbs


My lymph node is back to normal size.

Doctors can't tell me anything yet because of radiation still in my body.

PET scan scheduled for February 1st.

THANK YOU all for the prayers and support.

I struggled with sharing this again but now I know what I need.


In may I noticed an enlarged lymph node on the right side of my neck. I went to the Doctor and he prescribed anti biotics.  He also suggested I get a CT scan.

 After the CT and a PET scan  I was told that I have cancer

This was followed by many trips to MD Anderson and 2 surgeries. one to remove my tonsils.

Then the treatment plan.

I would have 33 radiation treatments and chemotherapy each Monday for six weeks.

The Cancer has never really scared me because of the peace I have from my faith in Christ.

The one thing that does scar me is the fact that I  have to ask others for help. 

This is the last thing I want to do. 

But the medical expense is beyond what I can put together in a short time.

so I am asking for help.

I would be glad to teach krav maga or work in any way I can to reimburse any donations that are given.

I would NEVER ask if I had other options

Thank you for your prayers
