Medical bills and possible Death expense

To all my friends, family, and customers of the Shoreline Central Market, who have been wondering what has become of me over these many months of recovery since my surgery last september.  We saw each other briefly at my fundraising BBQ dinner, but I've had many bumps in the road since then.  I have  had so many people tell me that you have been asking about me and my health ,that it is finally time to tell you of my situation.  I underwent both Chemotherapy and Radiation for many weeks as that was the Dr.'s highest recommendation for a chance at a long life.  They felt that even though all the cancer was removed during surgery it would be in my best interest to follow up with chemo and radiation as sort of "mop up" work, just to be sure. 
A few weeks later after I went back to work at the Mill Creek store, so I could be close to my family.  The post radiation swelling never went down, but in fact started getting worse, so i went back to the Dr. for yet more tests.  What they found out was the worse news yet.  My cancer was not only back it was worse then ever.  Now it has Metastases in my cheek, my jaw bone, throughout my facial region, and also in my left lung.  My new outlook on life from my Dr.'s is that I have less then six months to live.  I can't begin to describe to you all how scared I am for the fate of my family, my two little boys who who may be growing up without a father.  My wife who is still new to our country and would have to raise our family on her own, if not for the blessing of her own mother being able to move in with us to help share this burden.  I'm personally terrified of the whole process my self.  The pain continues to get worse as the tumors in my face grow.  I'm now down to less then 130 lbs from my former 200 lbs, turning into a skeleton in front of my family and friends is difficult at best to watch. 
All that being said ...I'm a fighter... and you know that.  I have been looking into many forms of altenative therapies, and one has really caught my eye, "The GERSON THERAPY".  Being on a combination of medical leave/donated vacation time has alowed me the chance to pursue the 24/7 approach this therapy demands.  So many of you i have managed to keep in touch with throughout this ordeal, and you continue to offer such tremendous support.  And yet there are so many more of you that do not know as of yet my fate and the perils my family faces in the near future.  Just know that I have not given up, and i will fight to keep my family and friends close to my side with every breath i have.  There is no end to the pasion for life that I want to continue to share with you... one Chocolate persimmon at at time..!!!!!
