Dave’s medical bills and equipment

As many of you already know, David Graves is a 29 year old hardworking, fun loving, caring man. On November 15, 2017 David went to Urgent Care for a pain in his left leg. The next day he got a call from the doctor saying they found a mass in his leg after a second reading on his X-ray was done and suggested going to the hospital. The past two and half months have been a roller coaster to say the least. He was diagnosed with cancer but doctors still are not sure as to what kind. After multiple pathologies, tests, and time running short the doctors came to an agreement that a hip disarticulation  (amputating his leg)  would be the safest and most effective way to get rid of the cancer. They scheduled the surgery for January 4,2018. There are a couple more masses in his body. A few on his skull and one in his lungs. Given the sizes of the masses they are unable to biopsy and are unsure if it had metastasized from his leg. After he heals from his surgery they will start treatment for those spots. Over the past few moths of being on bed rest in the hospital bills have piled up and we are now looking into a prosthetic leg.
