Help to Raise Funds-for Oscar

On April 10, 2011, I was diagnosed with a rare blood cancer called Multiple Myeloma.  I have had epistaxis, which is nose bleeds, for years and hematosa in both legs, as well as, bone and back pain.  My CBC (complete blood count) showed a reduction in hemoglobin.  This is the red and white blood counts and platelets which was very low. When I was diagnosed, I was at stage 3, of Multiple Myeloma.  I was recommmended to take chemotherapy which included Velcade, REV, DEX, and Zometa.  It was also  recommeneded that I take Stem Cell Transplant after HD Melphalan.  I was told that if I didn't start treatment immediately, I would not live past 6 months and that this type of cancer had no cure.  I refused to do the treatment and said that my faith in my God would heal me.  Over those three years, I have had many surgeries for nose bleeds and other symptoms.  I have had blood transfusions and scans as well as multiple hospital and emergency room visits.  Because of my condition, I have accumulated $24,059.00 in medical bills.I have  always paid our bills when I was working God has been good to me but after I got sick and had to take a medical leave from my job at wal-mart 6088 everything change. I went from  an income of about $30.00 an hour to really bringing no income in our home.I worked two jobs faithfully love to work  and love my job and was a very good worker. I had to use all my savings, my stock in wal-mart and quickly what seem like a lot was gone,then came the real blow I came I had to stop work at my job wal-mart. These medical bills just became to much and our income could not keep up.We  have always paid our bills and was able to keep good credit but after these unpaid debts was turned over to those debt collectors our credit was missed all up they turned the unpaided debts to the credit bureau . I would appreciate any donation that you are able to give; small or large.  All donations will go towards my bills, medical care, and herbal supplements for my care.  I trust and believe in God for all things and I know that He will take care of this too.  Thank you for your help, prayers and concern.  God bless you all.   ~Oscar
