Tony's Hope For A Miracle

My name is Kimberly I'm the wife of Tony  who  has just turned 51 on October 16 and has been diagnosed with Stage Four Colon Cancer 2 1/2 years ago. This was supposed to be a simple surgery and maybe a round of Chemo. The Colon surgery was successful however there were tumors found on his liver and his back he has been told there will be no remission ever. It's been very very draining to myself ,him, daughters, and the extended family that he has married into. He had Thero Sphere procedure and it was a flop in his case usually it's a last resort or procedure when chemo and radiation has failed. Doctor tried to do this in advance thinking the outcome

would have been much more positive. He is down to 146 lbs last weight from 215 lbs when all this started he's been in and out of the hospital has to get his stomach drained on a weekly basis because of his liver not functioning properly the treatments are indefinitely. This man is my soul mate if I could cut off a limb or what ever I could sacrifice to get him the old him I would do it just to have him cured. We are trying to be strong in our faith, prayers, and just hoping for a miracle. He has worked 29 years never asked much from anyone he is a  non selfless thoughtful giving person. He had to give up his job he is no longer able to work we had to sell his car because we couldn't afford it I feel his independence has been taken away. He is depressed because of this desease the bills keep coming in I've been on FMLA and have exhausted all my sick and annual leave to care for this man because I want to and it's hard for him to take care of himself. Showers are exhausting he has a chair in there to make it easier he gets overwhelmed and starts hyper ventalating  he's exhausted I have to help him bathe get dressed make sure his getting his medications  force him to eat and drink I would love to quit my job to care for him 24-7  but I cant  it's going to hurt me so bad when I have to leave him. I've never cried so hard and frequent in my entire life.He might need a home care nurse when I go back to work another expense. Our health insurance has been maxed out every year not to mention all the other bills. A co worker referred this site I understand a lot of us have hard ships and our issues I don't want to depend on anyone but things have gotten tough. The figure that I came up with is medical procedures that insurance hasn't covered and other bills because there is no income right now. I had to swallow my pride and this is probably the best gift that I can offer to him. Thank you all for your time whatever could be donated would be great we appreciate it for Tony's fight for a miracle.
