Jerry's fight for cancer

Jerry also nickname (Rock) is currently fighting the biggest battle of his life.  He is a Vietnam vet that served his country for 2 consecutive terms in active war. Unfortunately my dad is a victim of agent orange and has had multiple medical issues since he was in his 40's. He never gave up once and has beat death several times. Now he is fighting the biggest battle of his life. Febuary of this year the doctors found a 14cm tumor on his liver.  Biopsy showed HCC ( hepatocellular carcinoma ). It is an aggressive cancer. His family decided he needed to be treated at the world renowned Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, even though it was out of network. He has had multiple chemo treatments ( TACE) injected in his liver. None of which help. He now has mets to his lungs and currently Is on home oxygen. My dad has given so much to others and has put everyone else first.  My dad has an opportunity to do a trial treatment that has the potential to cure his cancer and save his life. Without this my dad has no other options and will live only another few months . The only problem is insurance does not pay and it will cost about 18,000 for the trial. With all the medical bills coming in now, expensive meds each month and limited income this would be a financial burden. His life savings would be depleted. Please help my dad kick this cancer out of the park.
