In 2013 he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's nasal lymphoma.
After the treatment of chemotherapy and radiation therapy he beat that lymphoma. His nose was damaged due to radiation so he had a surgery to restructure his nose.
Part of his rib was taken to make him a new nose, then he was doing well until now.
Sadly about 3 months ago he was diagnosed with exactly the same lymphoma.
But this time is more aggressive, he had a surgery to clean the dead tissue from his nose, Doctors removed all the necrosis and tear ducts in order to start the treatment.
We are all devastated with this terrible cancer, beside all the pain and procedures he has to go through, he is paying monthly the bills from the first treatment out from his paycheck so now he is dealing with the same situation again but he hasn't even pay off the first treatment yet.
Eliseo has already completed the first chemotherapy cycle last month, where only one chemo last 4 days (24hrs nonstop) then vaccines every other day for 21 days of chemotherapy. He has to remain in the hospital during this process. This treatment is called “Smile Chemotherapy Lymphoma”.
This is very hard for my brother as he is unable to see his son.
The treatment to be completed so far are 3 or 4 sets of intensive chemo, then bone marrow transplant from my sister or myself and at the end of this treatment make him a new nose.
He needs $9000 to pay part of the previous and current treatment. Anything that you donate we will be always grateful and I will be sending that donation to my brother via western union.
Hopefully he will beat this lymphoma once again and enjoy the life with his beautiful family.
Thank you very much to all the kind and wonderful people who is able to help my brother.
No matter what state you are in, there is always hope.
With Love Jackie Castillo.
