James Michael Patrick Skeadas

The reason we have created this fund for James Michael Patrick Skeadas aka "Jimmy, the Irish Cowboy ", is to provide what is not covered thru insurance for a rare strain of "micropapillary urothelial bladder cancer" that he contracted months ago.  www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/pmc5181670/

Because of the nature of this cancer, when they detected it, and its aggressive nature, normal chemo theraphy methods can not be used.

Instead ,Jimmy, has qualified for an Immunotherapy clinic trail at the world famous MD Anderson hospital in Houston, Texas. He recently started this treatment.

It is a new and aggressive treatment that puts him on his back for 4-5 days ! We all are hoping and praying that this experimental treatment will work for Jimmy.

The money raised for Jimmy will go towards...
1) the 20% of medical costs that medicare does not cover
2) Medicine, food, water, etc that he needs in order to live in Houston
3) Traveling expense from Tampa/Orlando and back to Houston
4) Traveling expense,etc to get to MD Anderson Hospital from Beaumont,Texas for his           treatments.

Please consider a monetary donation of any size to help defray the enormous financial burden that this has brought on Jimmy and his family. 

Without a doubt this is a "life threatening" situation that demands a high sense of urgency!

Thank you for help, and prayers,

Dennis and Tanya Skeadas
