A lot has happened since my treatment earlier this year.
On March 19th, I was admitted into Hoag Hospital for a full diagnosis of my condition. The results were not good. I have stage 4 cancer. The melanoma has spread to many of my vital organs (stomach, pancreas, lungs, liver…), to my bones (spine, hips, ribs…) and to my lymph nodes. I had surgery to support my liver draining more effectively, since I had severe jaundice, which restored my skin to its’ normal color and continues to support the evacuation of toxins from my liver.
I returned home after a week at Hoag and am currently getting nursing and home care, until we figure out my longer term prognosis and options.
I am going to keep up the fight and am looking at my journey as an Endurance Race / Event of staying steady walking w/ my Heavenly Father step by step, minute by minute ...and day by day.
By nature I am not very good at asking for outside assistance but after continued praying on it and continued council with my inner circle it was suggested by many others I establish a Go Fund Me platform to request assistance.
Some of you may be wondering how you can help. Here are some concrete ways:
1) Friends and family have helped set up a rotation for meals and visits. I love visitors and need help with meals. To schedule a visit or help with meals, please text Teri Wells at 9492466024.
2) I appreciate words of encouragement. So you can mail cards to the following address: James Wells, 2315 Heather Lane, Newport Beach, CA 92660
You can pray for me and my family, for my health, my spirits, for the wisdom of the doctors who are treathing me
3) I still have major medical bills ($50,000 from Hope4Cancer, Hoag Hospital and ongoing home care and medicine) to cover and need financial support to meet my basic living needs, as I am not drawing any income at this time.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and anything you can contribute, every little bit helps greatly.
I’m always amazed how God continues to bring people together.
Best Always and be blessed,
“He is in all things, therefore He is the source which holds all things together.” - Col 1:17
