Jeff Rowell Cancer Medical Fund!!!

Hello! My name is Jeff Rowell, I am a son, brother,  uncle, husband, father, grandfather and caregiver to a disabled daughter. I was diagnosed with Bladder Cancer in October 2014. That is when I had the first of the 5 surgeries I have had since then. The last surgery they removed my bladder and installed a urostomy. The latest diagnosis is Bladder Cancer, Stage 4 and it has metastized to my lymph nodes, lungs, muscles & bones, specifically my pelvic bone. I have just had 6 rounds of chemo therapy and my Oncologist at MD Anderson wants me to have Immunotherapy infusions which is not covered in my health insurance nework and they will approve out-of-network benefits, but I still have to pay approximately $15,000.00 out of pocket for the first infusion.  But, my pocket is empty.
I can't even really eat anythng but yogurt. I can not travel except for medical reasons. I am in almost constant pain and I have not able to work since this nightmare began. Social Security still has not approved my disability benefits.  My wonderful wife Kim has had to take off work to care for me and take me for Surgeries, Chemo therapy treatments, numerous scans doctors appointments. 
So any dontations received will be used to first pay for the Immunotherapy infusions (we hope we can raise at least that.) Second, any thing extra would be to just pay all the additional medical expenses, hospital & doctor visit travel expenses (we live in Katy, Texas and travel to the Medical Center in Houston) including paking & co-pays. and some home bills if possible.
But, I need the funds As Soon As Possible because I need the Immunotherapy Infusion right away. It would mean so much to be to be able to get this treatment so I can be here with and for my family & friends as long as possible!
I would be so eternally thankful for every donation  made to this fund. You just don't know how much this means to me and my family!
