Hi everyone, my stepdad Max Crook has been in and out of the hospital for about a month. They were trying to get to the bottom of why he has been so sick.
His liver is not functioning right because he has a mass on his pancreas that was blocking the bile flow to the liver. The hospital put a stent in the duct that was blocked due to the mass and then they referred him to Mayo Clinic in Arizona for treatment for Pancreatic Cancer.
The mass is too big to operate on at this time, so they want to start him on a immunotherapy called neoadjuvant chemo radiation treatment with MK-3475 and targeted radiation to shrink the mass on his pancreas before they can surgically remove it. This is going to be a long process and they are a long way from their home in Deming NM. He will have to be close to the Mayo Clinic as an outpatient for 5 to 6 weeks for the study and treatments, and then come back 4 weeks later to remove the mass.
Max and my mom are financially struggling with all the expenses and they would never ask for help. I am trying to raise money for them so it is one less thing for them to worry about, so they can focus on his treatment and getting him well. The money that is raised will go towards hotel, food, and travel expenses. Anything will help please share this campaign and donate if you can.
Max is an amazing, caring and loving person who is always helping others. He is a dedicated Christian man who loves God more than anyone I have ever met. Max is also a legend in the music industry, if you want to read about him click on the link below. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Crook
