Help David Clasby Fight Cancer

I'm sorry I have not updated this page in a while. My dad was thankful that so many people chose to donate in his time of need. He is watching over all of us in heaven now. If any additional money is donated to this page it will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network pancan.org
 




My dad James David Clasby Sr. is a lifelong resident of Fort Pierce, and one of the hardest workers around. Last April he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

Since then he has been fighting this horrible cancer by every method available. My mom drives him back and forth to the Space Coast Cancer Center and the Florida Pain Institute in Viera, Titusville, and Merritt Island to see his doctors multiple times every week. His current state of health is not good. They had to take him off of his chemotherapy because he is not eating.  He is having a hard time eating due to his stomach pain.

A few weeks ago the doctors discovered the cancer was blocking his bile duct, so they surgically installed a stent to reopen it. This surgery has helped to relieve some of his pain, but he is still in a lot of pain. He is prescribed some of the most powerful pain killers available, but they are not working. His doctors tell us there is a procedure called a “Celiac Plexus Block” that will stop his pain and help him to eat again. He is scheduled to get this soon pending the insurance company’s approval.

Fighting cancer is not cheap. The bureaucratic nature of our health care system is sickening. If my parents were extremely wealthy, my dad would not have to suffer for weeks on end while an insurance company decides if they are going to cover an operation that the doctors believe will solve his pain problem. Unfortunately, my parents are not extremely wealthy. My dad has good insurance, but the insurance premiums, copays, gas, etc.. all add up very fast. My parents need help paying for this. If you can, please donate.

 

Thanks.

James D. Clasby Jr.
