It all started back in January when the doctors told him after x-rays of his chest that he had pneumonia and was prescribed antibiotics. They said come back in a couple weeks if your cough does not go away. He went back after several weeks and explained that the cough is still lingering. Another chest x-ray was done and he was told the mass was smaller. Doctors thought he was getting better so they told him to come back in a couple months to get another x-ray. After the two months and another x-ray the doctors found that the mass went from a golf ball to a grapefruit. They did a biopsy with a long needle through his back, between his ribs into his lungs and into the mass. After five days in the hospital in another five waiting on the results from the biopsy the doctors said they did not have enough of the mass to complete all the tests needed. The next plan was to go into his lung and cut part of the mass to do more test.
Here we are almost 8 months later if he is ready to start radiation and chemo therapy on this cancer that has now spread throughout his body. This could not have come at a worse time as he is in between insurances. I’m sure you can imagine the financial hit for Eight months of tests, scans, biopsies and time spent in the hospital.
My dad is a loving, caring, hard-working, generous man that helps anybody in need. He is the type to never ask for help. He always finds a way. During this struggle he still does not ask for help. He just does the best he can with what he has. I’m asking for anyone that feels like they can be of any help and could donate to help pay his medical bills. It doesn’t have to be a lot, anything helps. Thank you to all of you and may you all be blessed.
