My Quest for Keytruda

It's hard to know where to start but in a nutshell I have been fighting Stage 4 Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Cerival Cancer for 2 years 4 months now. After 21 rounds of traditional chemotherapy (Cisplatin, Carboplatin and Taxol plus 3 rounds of the immunotherapy drug Avastin. Those drugs got me this far but they are no longer working and/or the side effects prevent me from using them. That means we are almost out of options for my type of cancer. This leaves what is classified as experiemental drugs by both the FDA and my insurance company.
My insurance company know that I am out of options but they have still declined to cover the one drug I have left, Keytruda. Keytruda has shown great promise with other Squamous Cell cancer and has been approved by FDA for several other cancers.
In order for me to get the drug I need to either qualify for compassionate care through Merck or pay for the drug and other expenses up front.
That is where this campaign comes in to play. I will need an infusion every 3 weeks at a cost of about $15,000 each or about $250,000 per year. Can you help me?
