Help Julio fight cancer

Hi I am Rebecca. I am the girlfriend of Julio and the mother of our new baby girl! For those who don't know, Julio was diagnosed with cancer in 2013(osteosarcoma in his pelvic bone, now in his hip joint). He did treatment and was in remission for about a year and a half and it came back. We found out about 3 months later that I was pregnant. Julio wasnt going to do treatment prior to finding out I was pregnant. He started treatment after we found out. The initial plan was chemotherapy for 3 months then surgery for either removal of the tumor or amputation of his leg. Julio was doing chemotherapy for 5 months and it seemed to be helping until the last month when his pain started to become worse and worse. He had a scan done and it showed that his tumor was growing. This was devastating. They told us the chemo wasn't working anymore. He then went to see another doctor that specializes in his type of cancer who recommended a new form of treatment. It is in a pill form and then once a month he would go in for an infusion to help his bones, the pills could potentially deteriorate his bones specifically his jaw bone. He needed dental clearance before starting. He received clearance a week ago but now isn't sure that he wants to do that because of the possibility that his bones could deteriorate. We are now looking into the possibility of a natural path doctor. We just had our baby on 1/29/17. I am not working currently because I just had her and he is unable to work due to cancer. He is barely able to move around the house. We don't have many funds we receive about $400 a month. Ins doesn't fully cover the new medication he would be on if we have to go that way and it is pretty expensive every month on top of all the other medications he has to take. If he goes the natural path way, we still run into financial issues. Then you add doctor co pays, that have to be paid even if you say "bill it to me". On top of that expenses of a newborn and well, just living in general. This is really hard for us to do as asking for help hasn't always been easy. Anything you could help with would mean everything to us. Everything adds up, small amounts are better than none, anything is appreciated. Thank you!!
