Glioblastoma brain tumor treatment

On July the 16th Dave took me to the emergency room after two weeks of not being myself.  The whirlwind of life changing facts began to roll in.  I was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma brain tumor.  It was in the left frontal lobe and had to be removed.  The tumor itself was the size of an average egg, but the swelling in my brain was double that size.  On July 19h surgery was preformed to remove the tumor.  The pathology came back as malignant and set me on this long course of treatment.  I will be starting friendships with a doctor in Dallas who is a tumor specialist, the radiologist and oncologist.  I'm sure there will be several more medical staff in and out too.  Although all of this seems to be overwhelming I find that God grabs a hold of us and shakes our stuffings up a bit to remind us his hand is on us.
 This is a stubborn, fast growing cancer that will need to be treated with radiation and chemotherapy as soon as possible.  We have good insurance with Dave's work, but unfortunately it will soon be exhausted and the 20% we have to pay will put us in a financial hole.  We are asking for your help with this and promise that if there are any funds left we will pay them forward to someone else facing this tough fight.
