Diagnosis of cancer

Back in March my husband and devoted father and grandfather was diagnosed with an aggressive muscle invasive bladder cancer stage 2. Immediately after the diagnosis he was told since it was in the muscle he would have to lose his bladder after under going chemo treatments. Since diagnosis we've had to make multiple trips to Houston which includes hotels for 2-7 days at a time.  Although we do have health insurance there's a lot it won't cover such as lodging, food, gas, co-payments and most of all the procedures themselves have big amounts that have to be paid before treatment is done. For his first round of chemo on June 5th the procedure is 30,000 and after insurance he will owe close to 1000.00 and he has to under go at least 8 chemo treatments. During each chemo session he will need a hotel for 3 days which average around 200 to 250. After 4 chemo sessions they will perform the removal of the bladder (radical cystectomy) which is roughly a 10 hour procedure.  This will most likely have a copay greater than any we've yet faced.  Anyone that knows Larry knows he's always willing to help in any way he can now he needs our help. If you are unable to donate please consider sharing this and keeping him in your prayers.   Thank you,  Collins family
