Help me in my fight against cancer

I have been fighting adenocarcinoma of the colon since November of 2016.  They removed the original tumor, a portion of my colon and 28 lymph nodes, ten of which contained cancer.  This was considered a Stage 3 cancer. I underwent 12 treatments over a six month period, every two weeks, three to four days each week.  The Doctors were going for a "cure" so the  treatments were intense and difficult and ate into whatever sick leave I had.  I've reached a point that if  I don't work, I don't get paid.  I have been sick often.
     After completing the cycle of chemotherapy  in July, a CT scan and an MRI revealed that the cancer had metastasized into the right side of my liver.  The chemo "cure" did not work.
     Now, the gold standard cure for me is to have the right side of my liver removed.  I undergo surgery in two days.  If they find any tumors in any of my organs besides the one in my liver, they will stop the surgery and close me up.  If nothing else is growing they will proceed with the removal of the liver.
    I don't know if  the remaining left side portion of my liver will be enough to sustain me.  There is no way to know until they remove the right side.  Only time will tell.
    I don't know what lies ahead for my treatments but, I do know that it will be a continuing battle to survive.  
     Any donation at this time will be greatly appreciated and will help cover day to day costs and make life easier. Your heart felt kokua will give me the peace of mind and strength to continue this battle.
    Mahalo and Aloha, my friends.
