As some of you already know, all this began more than five years ago. I had just turned 35, and my daughters were just five and seven then. I was driving in San Diego, when suddenly I had a grand mal seizure, crashed my car, and was rushed to the Hospital.
After three MRI's and open brain surgery, I was told I had an extremely large brain tumor, that was indeed cancerous and fatal. Unfortunately, where it was located, there was no way to take it out by surgery, so they suggested to put me on Chemotherapy just to keep it from growing. Chemo can work on certain forms of cancer, but doesn't shrink brain tumors well. I found out that people were dying on average in less than two years. So I had no choice and somehow found the Optimum Health Institute, in San Diego. I learned about drinking wheatgrass, cutting out all my sugars, and eating a mostly raw, clean, and organic diet. I was determined to change anything, just for a chance to stay with my girls...
Well guess what, after nine months they gave me another MRI, and the tumor hadn't grown at all! My Neurosurgeon couldn't explain why, but told me to keep doing whatever I was! Well that was five years and nine months ago!
The fact that I am still alive is a miracle already, but despite everything, my daughters have grown up better than you could ever imagine. They are now ten and twelve years old, going into the fifth and eight grades. And even though they have been facing the greatest fear of losing their Daddy, they still became top honor roll students and truly loving beings...
(I could never be more proud of them both!!!)
The tumor unfortunately however, has begun growing again, and has become more and more serious. Being awakened by seizures every morning, and then ten to twenty times throughout the day. Without being able to drive or work, my family and I eventually lost everything taking care of me.
But now the tumor has grown to the point where I can no longer ignore it. It's cutting off my ventricle space. Which means If I do nothing, according to my new Neurosurgeon, I am facing just three to six months to live. And honestly, I really want a little more time with my girls than that.
So right now this second, I desperately need your help! Because If I do pass on, my daughters will lose my disability, and would be losing their place to live almost immediately!
Imagine them just losing their Daddy, living with that sorrow, and just weeks later, losing their home, their schools, their friends...
Well right now I am still alive, and I refuse to let that happen!
I need to know that my daughters will be OK, and only then, could I ever go in peace...
That's why I am asking EVERYONE: PLEASE HELP MY LITTLE GIRLS!!!
Now knowing I might only have months to live, I don't want to sit around whining about it even one day! The real question is, will I get to love my girls a little longer?
Truthfully, I just don't know yet. But I do have tons of faith! And I will NEVER know if I don't get the chance to try! So that's why I'm asking EVERYONE to please help me change my daughters FUTURE, by donating ANYTHING you possibly can.
My girls and I, appreciate this more than you could ever imagine!
Thank you so much, and may God Bless every one of you forever,
Lance Joseph Donlan
