In April of 2013, I was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma. It's a very rare cancer, mainly found in children and in the bone. It's very rarely found in adults, and its even more rare for the sarcoma to be outside of the bone.
Mine setup shop in my pelvic cavity. Not a good area. The tumor invaded my bladder, prostate, rectum and part of my colon. So, now I have Colostomy and Urostomy bags that I use the restroom in. I have to change them 2 times a week and they get emptied and rinsed as needed.
Recently, I had to have A PET/CT Scan and an MRI.
Good News: MRI was clean.
Bad News: The PET scan showed cancer in my pelvic bone and my tail bone, along with the residual that was left from surgery (we knew about that already, though.) What does this mean for me? Well, obviously the prognosis isn't good. But, if the chemo works, they can control my cancer and keep it from spreading. If the chemo doesn't work, well... you get the idea on that one.
A bone marrow transplant may or may not be helpful for me.
Worst case scenario: All treatments fail; life expectancy is a year or less.
Best case scenario: All treatments work wonderfully; life expectancy could be 8+ years. (Although, statistically the chances of that happening are only around 30%)
This is going to be a very, very rough road for Chris and I. Your prayers, thoughts and positive energy are all welcomed.
It's tough for me to accept the fact that I have a very rare, aggressive and deadly cancer, but each and every one of you knows how stubborn I can be. I'm a fighter, and as hard as this may be, I will be fighting with all of my might.
But what I need just as much as your prayers is some help with my medical bills. If you can chip in what you can, id greatly appreciate it.
I've applied for some help from work, but its not guaranteed I'll get anything. I really just want to keep my bases covered.
Any money gathered here will be used strictly for medical/pharmacy bills/expenses and (as an absolute worst case scenario) my final expenses.
