In February 2017, my husband of 40 started feeling short of breath. The doctor told us that he needed two stents to open his aorta. After the procedure, a persistent coughing started. We went to a pulmonologist, where he was diagnosed with COPD and after further tests (CAT, MRI, Colonoscopy, Gastroscopy) the result was colon cancer affecting his liver and lungs.
The hospital put him on chemotherapy but it affected him badly and after 2 sessions he was not able to get out of bed.
He chose to stop the chemo and go for an alternative treatment regimen of Hyperbaric Oxygen, B17 vitamin, Ozone, and Aminocare A10. These treatments are not covered by our medical insurance but are keeping his health (sickness) level constant.
However, we got in touch with a cancer center in India -The treatment is a combination of traditional Cancer therapy combined with alternative methods with remarkable results. As the cancer affects his liver and lungs, time is of essence and he need to start treatment within 6 weeks.
I started this Go Fund Me campaign to cover the costs of the treatment as our insurance does not cover any cancer therapy other than traditional chemotherapy. These funds will pay for the treatment and include travel, accommodation, and daily expenses.
He also need a portable oxygen concentrator to help with the COPD, especially for the travelling. We currently live in Johannesburg, South Africa, so travel to the hospital in India will take almost 24 hours impossible to use it on an aeroplane. Portable units are available here but cost $2600.
Last week we went in to the Hospital for a check-up and were warned that time is crucial, he needs to act before the tumour starts spreading and creates a closure in his colon.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you very, very much.
