Fifteen years ago, my father was the hospice nurse to my ailing mother who was suffering from Breast Cancer, and after a two year battle, she had lost her fight and passed quietly in his arms.
My father has since spent his life caring for and helping other people improve their health. He has welcomed hundreds of people into his life and selflessly guided them in the field of wellness and nutrition, while quietly battling his own cancer of the prostate, unbeknownst to most everyone.
Recently he found that his cancer had become so compromised, and conventional medicine didn't offer him the success he needed. His only willing option was to abruptly leave to an outpatient clinic in Tijuana, Mexico. Upon arrival, it was discovered that his PSA had spiked to a dangerous 1,323 points, with a healthy PSA reading being below 4.
In 4 weeks, his PSA had dramatically been reduced to 300 points. It had been advised he stay at the clinic longer, but with no insurance coverage for these alternative treatments, our family's finances unfortunately couldn't allow it.
With his failing health, he has been unable to work since Novermber 2017, and with my siblings and I doing our best to support him, and insurance only covering routine bloodwork, the finances are becoming overwhelming.
For a man who has spent his life caring for others, my family and I are asking for help in return to continue our only parents medical care.
