Darrells fight against Uretercancer

Hello folks! I am a 58yr old United States Marine Corps Veteran and Family Man that is fighting a rare type of Ureter Cancer. After 5 months of a very intense round of chemotherapy every week and being sickly and losing nearly 15lbs during that time the doggone cancer spread from my Ureter Tube into my Bladder, Kidney, and left lung. Once the Docs figured out that apparently the chemotherapy treatment I was on did nothing but apparently spread the cancer they decided to go another route which  was to begin a regiment of treatments called Immunotherapy. My Urologist Doctor told myself  wife and kids in the very beginning  that the type of cancer I had was rather rare and that they really didn't know how to treat it so it would be touch and go as we went. So now after a couple months of the new treatment (Immunotherapy) and having another CT Scan the results were amazing from the test. Some of the cancer was completely gone and some were half the size they were.  There was a couple nodules of the cancer that nothing happened to but hoping that eventually it does.  So after being told I may have 12months left on this earth to live  if I was lucky, and me seeing no light at the end of the tunnel so to say, We now may see a little twinkle of light at the end of the tunnel,  but now I need to ask Family, Friends, and anyone who can and would like to help myself and my family to help Us get through the next few months of therapy again. My Family Friends and my home town of Braggs Oklahoma have gotten me this far in this battle but with my wife not being able to work during all this do to being my caretaker and myself being disabled we have run out of funds to keep getting to the doctor and chemo appointments and my little social security check hardly covers our house payment and utilities. Now I don't know if this is the way to go about this or if there's more to say than I have but, we will keep fighting the battle against cancer with everything I got in me.  God Bless America and Semper FI!
