I am the sole caregiver of my best-friend/boyfriend. He has been diagnosed with stage 4 rectal cancer. 3 months ago we went through radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. He has had every complication and adverse reaction they warn you about. From trying to bleed out on surgery table to having catheter put in the wrong way. He was most recently to have a port installed for chemo where his lung was punctured and they were unsuccessful placing the port. What we need is a vehicle to get him to doctors and treatments. The vehicle we are using now has numerous problems and I am scared to death it will break down on our way to an appointment. This would not be a problem except his cancer team is an hour drive for us. I just know something is going to happen when I am taking him somewhere.
This is a man that worked hard his entire life. We have watched him go from a man working 40 hours to a man that is in such pain he cannot even get out of bed by himself. We have enough saving to keep him in diapers wipes and bed protections, but we cannot afford a costly car repair. I know there are many people in this great land that have just as many financial problems as we do. And I appreciate each day I get to have him in my life. But I want to take this worry off his mind so he can focus on healing. Thank you
