Thanks For The Help

On June 24,2017, I was in a bad car wreck in which My car was totaled. I was taken to the ER and found to have a broken clavicle. The ER doctor had come in and said if other CT scans came back ok then I could go home. We were preparing to leave when the doctor came back and asked who my Oncologist was. We were dumbfounded! I asked why he assumed I had an Oncologist and he then realized that we had no idea I had 4 nodules in 3 different lobes of my lungs. That is how this journey began. Since then, I have had 2 transthoracic biopsies, a bronchoscopy, a PET scan, colonoscopy and EGD. On September 1, we finally got a diagnosis-Metastatic Adenocarcinoma. The following week I had my first appointment with the oncologist more CT scans were done. The doctor gave us more details-some of which I really didn't want to know. My Stage IV cancer started in my colon, but has moved to my lungs and the nodules have atleast doubled in size since June. My prognosis without treatment was about 3 months-keep in mind we found this in June and it's now September....However with treatment, prognosis is more like 8-32months. The next week I had my port placed and recently have taken my 2nd round of chemotherapy. Right now my Medical Bills That I Have to Pay Is 29,500.00 And Still Have To Pay Ins Co 5,000 Before They Will Start Covering, My Personal Bills Are Behind At Bank 7,500 plus another 6,500 Coming Due In 2 Weeks. Plus More Important I Have 3 Daughters 10, 16 18 And We All Know How Expensive Girls Are. My wife works, but she has had to take off for my appointments and procedures so her checks have been less than what we are used to. I am unable to work, to help with bills right now. I do have insurance, but my deductible is very high and will start all over January 1. I understand everyone has their own burdens, I sure appreciate your willingness to help me bear mine. Thank you
