During the colonoscopy, the doctor discovered almost complete blockage of colon cancer. Emergency surgery was performed and 5 inches of his colon was removed along with a spot on his liver.
He recovered from the surgery and was scheduled for a scan to see where else the cancer had spread. They discovered 6 to 7 more spots on his liver and began planning for 12 rounds of chemo, one every two weeks.
My brother has had 8 rounds of chemo and has not done very well with the side effects that come along with each treatment. He suffers from headaches, dizziness, nausea and sensitivity in his fingers. He cannot touch anything cold. The symptoms and sensitivity in his fingers has continued to get worse with each treatment. His job is to work on air conditioning units so it has become more difficult for him to work.
Because of the symptoms, he had not been able work very much. He tries to work with the nausea but has found it very difficult and cannot complete a full day. Meanwhile the medical bills are piling up. His insurance is only paying about 75% so he is struggling to pay the 25% especially without being able to work.
My brother has been so kind and generous to others throughout the years. He has given away a car, multiple items and helped out with our parents until both passed away. He is the type to not ask for help and is trying his best to work while struggling more and more. I am asking for help on his behalf.
Will you help? Any amount would be greatly appreciated. Please pray for him and share with your friends and family.
