Joshua's medical bills

My name is Pansy Willis. I have a story to tell you about my son Joshua Webb. In May 2010 Joshua and his daughter were in a auto accident on I 20. A lady came across the median and he could not avoid her. Thank God his daughter was ok butJosh had a bad back injury. He underwent 2 major surgeries , lost his job and had to move in with his sister. After he was able he decided to go back to college and get his degree in electrical as that was what he was doing when he lost his job. Joshua completed his 2 year Associate degree in industrial electrical and graduated in May of 2014. He had worked hard and even though he still had a lot of health problems was so excited to start looking for work and get his and his children's life back to normal. He found a job and was able to buy a house he could fix up for them. Life was looking up. Then after working for 8 months Josh passed out at work. He was taken to the ER  then admitted. He had 2 knots in his neck and when the test were completed our world turned upside down when we heard those dreaded words, "you have CANCER." It turned out he had thyroid cancer which had spread to his lymph nodes. In July he underwent a 7 hour surgery during which they removed the thyroid plus 69 lymph nodes. In August he did radiation and even though he still had problems we were told he was doing good and after being out of work for 4 months he could go back. He kept having pain in his chest and neck and after having a scan we were told he has cancer in the lymph nodes in his chest . We were sent to see another surgeon on Nov. 18. He told us he could not do surgery it is to risky. After 3 doctors and all saying something different, I decided it is time to go somewhere else. We will be flying to Phoenix Arizona sometimes the first of December to have him evaluated at a cancer center. Joshua already has doctor and hospital bills from before and now we will have expenses for the trips we will be making plus he will be out of work again, but we have to do everything we can! I am asking if you can help it would be greatly appreciated and I know God will bless you. Joshua has always been a kind hearted and loving person who has helped many people and would never ask for help and now I am asking for him. As a mother my heart breaks for him and his two precious children. When he was little I kissed the booboos and made them go away, but I can not make this go away. I can only be there with him and for him and pray that with God's help these doctors can do something. God bless you if you can help financially but please say a prayer for us!
