Dr Jay's Cancer Fund

Please help Dr Jay and I stay in our home while Jay fights stage 4 lung cancer.  Like many families in America, we were one diagnosis away from disaster. In August of this year Jay went to the ER for severe chest pain (on his Harley!) which turned out to be a pulmonary embolism and thrombus in the jugular vein.  A later biopsy revealed stage 4 lung cancer which has spread to the lymph nodes in his chest, neck and underarm. Because the doctors can't find a primary tumor in the lungs, Jay's oncologist reports that his cancer is inoperable and incurable. Rather than risking illness and loss of work from standard medical treatments Jay has chosen to forgo radiation and chemo for 3 months. Instead, he'll be following a raw vegan juicing protocol and other natural cancer treatments.  UPDATE 2/12/19: Jay started immunotherapy in January and the puffiness in his neck (from cancerous lymph nodes) has gone down significantly! Still sticking with a mostly vegan diet and other supplements. Jay has spent his entire life in service to others. First, to his country in the USMC, to his family & 3 beautiful children, and to his patients as an amazing and dedicated chiropractor. He wants nothing more than to continue working and treating patients.   Jay has already lost weeks of work and I'm on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). We live on a very tight budget so we're already struggling to buy the necessary supplements & organic produce in addition to medical bills and rent.  Please help us reach our goal of six month's rent so Jay can focus on healing without the added stress of losing our home. ❤
