Hello friends, family, and kind hearted strangers. My Dad is my best friend and has been battling tonsil cancer since December, 2015. On Thursday, June 1, 2017 we received devestating news that the cancer is back and it has spread to his spinal cord and the oncologist and radiologist don't have any treatments they can give to him besides the possibility of a chemotherapy pill which they don't think will work. We are not giving up hope. We have reached out to the Cancer Center of America but received word today that since he is retired and under my moms UPMC EPO insurance that his treatment at the Cancer Center of America will not be covered by insurance and will need to be paid completely out of pocket. This would be a nearly impossible feat to reach since my mom is battling cancer as well and is in chemotherapy treatments. I understand that our family is not any more special than the next but my dad is my world and he has been my moms rock since her diagnosis of stage 4 uterine cancer in February, 2007. Any help would be appreciated. God bless.
