My dad was diagnosed in March of 2016 with advanced stage Cancer of lung, liver, and colon.
So far dad has had 29 rounds of chemo therapy by infusion and also a few rounds cryotherapy treatment at Cancer Centers of America in Chicago. This has involved travel by vehicle to Chicago most every other week since this process started over a year ago.
As of this posting, only the liver cancer currently remains, and the lung and colon cancer have cleared, great news! Bad news is that the liver cancer is no longer reacting positively to the chemotherapy infusion treatments, no matter how strong the dosage.
Doctors now plan to try a new treatment plan (still awaiting insurance approval) which of course involves continued and regular travel to Chicago.
The rigorous travel schedule to Chicago for care along with the many side effects from chemotherapy have already greatly diminished dads ability to work. Patty does most all of the driving to allow dad to rest and gain as much strength as possible.
There is hope in the new treatments but the process may make working even more difficult to an impossiblility.
All funds raised will go directly to help support dads battle with Cancer. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Continued prayer and support is greatly appreciated.
