Johns Battle with cancer..

I was diagnosed with Colon Cancer which spread to the liver in February of 2014. Due to the Chemo treatments, surgery and  fatigue, I  have not worked since the end of January. I finally started receiving disability in August. We have fought this battle for 8 months... we have now found out the Cancer has over taken my liver, has spread to the abdomen, and has spread to my left and right lung. We are so heartbroken. Our Oncologist has said changing Chemo Protocol is our only options. Surgery is not an option, radiation is not an option. Without any treatment I will not be here in a few weeks, so I started  the new protocol today. We know time is not on our side... and our family time is precious to Diana ,Ryan and myself. While family has helped quite a bit, I wanted to establish this fund to try to help with medical co-pays and prescriptions that our insurance doesn't cover and to also off set household expenses when Diana takes off work to take me to my weekly Dr. appointments and 5 hour Chemo infusions. As days go by, I am requiring more care, and I want to spend more time with my family. We are praying hard this protocol works, but it is in God's hands.
No donation is to small, anything will help. Thank you !!!!
