Ella's Cancer Fund

My wife, Ella, was diagnosed at Glendale Adventist Medical Center, having pancreatic cancer with metastasis to her liver last January 31, 2017.  Chemotherapy was the recommended treatment.

Ella did not think she can endure the pain and side effects of chemotherapy. She decided to go for alternative treatment by infusions of high dose vitamin C and other immune system boosting drugs. She underwent for low dose chemo for two times, nevertheless, at the cancer treatment center where she had alternative treatment and it started to make her condition bad. After spending all of her and her husband's retirement benefits,  she opted for cryo-ablation and embolization which would cost another $32,000, but her insurance declined to authorize her procedure citing it's experimental and investigational. 

Ella's chance of survival would depend on your financial support as we seek other therapy options locally or outside of the country that can cure her disease. 

Currently, my wife is unable to retain her food or water after eating or drinking. She would throw them out after a couple of hours or so. 

Since pancreatic cancer is so aggressive, we have no time to waste and must go immediately for a new round of treatment. 

Thank you for any and all help you can extend to us. God will recompense your kindness and love. God bless.

Sincerely,

Fil Alcaide
Husband
