Help me Beat Stage 4 Lung Cancer

Hello, this is Todd Measles and my wife's name is Donna. I am a cotton farmer working on a fair sized farm on the South Plains of Texas and Donna is a bookkeeper.

There we were, living the dream, after our kids were grown, we were both working trying to pay off some debt and put back a nest egg for our retirement. Neither one of us had previously any serious illness or injury till around six months ago when Donna began to have trouble breathing. She thought it was bronchitis, went to the clinic where she received the normal antibiotics, but it did not help.

Long story short, after an incorrect diagnosis of pneumonia, she was transferred from one hospital to another and was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer (non-small cell squamous carcinoma). She had watched her mother with the same thing, five years earlier, go through chemo and radiation to no avail, so Donna has decided against the doctor's recommended treatment of chemo and immunotherapy.

Which brings us to here, we are trying to raise funds for Donna to go to an alternative natural treatment facility called Hope4Cancer. Of course health insurance was priced out of our reach so we do not have any and it wouldn't pay for the alternative treatment anyway.

Believe me, this is very difficult for both of us to do, ask for financial help, as we have always paid our bills and our own way and just the hospital stay and diagnosis has sunk us financially. Time is of the essence as Donna's condition is getting worse and the doctor has confirmed that the cancer is growing in her lungs and has recommended hospice.

So if you can spare one dollar, or maybe five dollars, we would be eternally grateful. It will certainly go to a good cause, Donna has a lot to live for. Thanks in advance and God bless.
