I served in the military as a HospitalCore man for 6 years Navy and 4 years Army. I have a wife and 14 year old daughter. I was diagnosed with testicular cancer on April 20, 2017 immediately had Orchidectomy  surgery to remove it. I have been fighting this disease since then.  
In July I started having seizures my wife took me to the ER where the doctor did a CT scan. The doctor told me I had several masses in my brain. The testicular cancer had traveled up to my brain. Shortly after I started chemotherapy which lasted 4 months.  Within 3 weeks of finishing the chemotherapy I had a brain  bleed that left my left side paralyzed. I spent the next 2 months in the hospital learning how to walk, 9 days of radiation to my brain, underwent chemoembolization and 9 days of stem cell collection.
My doctors recommended I have tandem transplants. In January 2018 I had my first Stem Cell Transplant shortly after that in February in went through my second Stem Cell Transplant. After having more scans done I was told that I was cancer free and in remission. In July I started having bad headaches which never got better. I went back to the hospital they did 2 CT scans and an MRI scan which showed I had a 4.2 cm tumor in my brain. On August 28, 2018 I had a Right Frontal Craniotomy surgery. My oncologist are recommending Sterotactic radiosurgery - Cyber Knife and Intratheal Chemotherapy. The goal of this gofundme is to help me raise $75,000 for extra medical cost which include future treatments and day to day living cost. My wife has been my caregiver since day one any donation is going to be very helpful even $5 will help me share this with all whom you can think of. Thank you so very much for taking the time to read this and help can’t do this alone without you fine people!!
