Steve was rushed to the Logan hospital late one night, they then quickly transferred him to the P.A hospital in Brisbane, where it was discovered he had a brain tumour around 3 cm. Steve spent just over a week in hospital and was told that to remove the tumour it was a very complex operation as it was sitting amongst all his vital parts and veins. The hospital said he would be back within 2-3 weeks as it urgently had to be removed.
6weeks later Steve woke up rolling around in pain and was urgently rushed back to hospital for emergency surgery. He now had a blood clot that erupted into the tumour. After 11 hours of surgery and 3 days in an induced coma he came back to us.
But unfortunately the Dr's could only remove 90% of the tumour. 6 days after surgery we were informed that our beloved husband/father was in advanced stages of melanoma with a mass on his lungs and adrenal gland , lower back in his oesophagus as well as what was left in his head.
We had no idea and are still trying to come to terms with the terrible news.. We found the tumour at the end of January and was advised about the melanoma in March.
Steve does not want to die in hospital and he wants to come home. We are in desperate need of some equipment that will be needed at home to maintain that he is as comfortable as possible. I would like to get him a mechanical lift chair to help Steve to stand by himself which would also assist me because it takes 2 people to stand him up and as he is unable to walk properly he is in need of a waller machine . we will need come other bits and pieces also as they arise.. Walking belt, a bath transfer seat ect.
As Steve has melanoma cancer and he is unable to claim any type of work cover so we are desperate
I am asking you all, please nothing is too small
Can you please help by donating so we can get the equipment as soon as possible. Thank you
Steve Blewett and myself Kerry-Ann Blewett xx
