Edward's Funeral Expenses

This GoFundMe account has been set up for the final expenses of our Uncle Edward Vasquez. On July 9th, 2014 Edward was diagnosed with Stage 4 renal cell carcinoma.

On August 7th he had surgury and removed his right Kidney a 20 lb tumor, his adreno gland, a portion of his liver and 60 lymph nodes. He has gone through several scans and each scan shows that his cancer has metastisized. In January he began having problems using his right side and was experiencing speech difficulties. An MRI was done in the end of January where they found clusters of tumors and swelling around the brain. Edward was given the option for radiation: without radiation he was given 2-4 weeks and with radiation he was given 3-4 months. On April 6th he was cleared by the doctor to continue normal activity.

On April 13th he had a seizure and was rushed to the hosital, upon his arrival ER did an MRI and found swelling around the the brain, at that time he was unable to walk or talk. A second MRI was done on April 15th that showed signs that the radiation had increased the size of the tumor, he was then prescribeed an anti-seizure medication along with steroids.

Edward is currently taking alzheimers medication and the anti-seizure medication along with the Chemo medication and steroids. Edward now has steroid tapering instructions and by May 10th he will go from 12 mg daily to 2 mg daily. We are faced with making funeral arrangements due to the fact that we won't know how much time he has with us.

As you can imagine this is a time for everyone to enjoy Uncle Edward's presence rather than worrying about funeral expenses.

We would like to thank you in advance for your generosity. Please keep Edward Vasquez in your prayers.
