Help My Dad Survive Brain Cancer

My name is Aryana and I'm 16 years old, and there is no other way to put it: my dad is dying, and traditional medicine cannot save him.

A few months ago, while driving to a friend's house, he lost consciousness and felt extremely ill for the rest of the weekend. What at first seemed like a minor illness turned into something resembling the flu, but much worse. It plagued him for multiple weeks before the realization occurred that something was truly wrong.

After consulting with a couple of different specialists, as well as undergone an MRI and a surgical biopsy, he was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme stage 4; a highly aggressive form of brain cancer.

My world shattered when I heard this news. My dad is only 55 years old and truly the kindest, most positive person. Throughout my life I have learned so much from his compassion and empathy, and knowing that he may only have a short amount of time left is beyond unbearable.

Unfortunately, due to his condition, he isn't able to work, so the meager savings he had are being used to pay his medical expenses. I've been doing a lot of research and found multiple successful clinical trials which are done in different parts of the country, but unless I raise enough money, my efforts will not be taken seriously.

All I ask for is the chance of saving my dad's life. Traditional treatments have given my dad around 3-5 months left to live, and although he has gone through multiple rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, nothing seems to be improving. Alternative therapy treatments are his only chance at survival.

I love my dad more than anything and cannot bear to lose him. No one deserves to die without proper treatment, so every little bit helps.

Thank you so much in advance for your kindness.
