Joey's cancer treatments

My son Joseph, back in August, 2017  who was 23 years old at the time was  diagnosed with testicle cancer, soon after being diagnosed he had to have surgery to have his testicle removed. A little while after surgery Joey was checked for any other cancerleft in his body and they have discovered that it now has traveled to  his lymph notes and lower body where they a found a tumor in his chest that is also cancer. Joey recieved intense chemo treatments and was told at the end of the treatments that his tumor has shrunk and that his cancer nunbers have come down drastically. Joey was told by his doctor that he didn't need to do blood work for two and half months. The time came for Joey to have blood work and scans done and we just got the news that he has a large tumor in his chest between his lungs  and his lynph notes are really swollen and that his cancer numbers are doubled from what they were before his first time being diagnosed with cancer. He was told that the tumor is very agrresive and that now he will have even more intense chemo treatmenst that will force him to stay in the hsopital in New York for a week every time he get these treatments. I am trying to raise money so he can try and get healling treatments and hope these treatments would help him somewhat with his pain and maybe some cure for this aggresive tumor. Joey is going to need help with just the bare essntials like organic foods, rent, utility bills, and medication. Joey is now 24 years old and was working 50 to 60 hours a week and doesn't want to ask anyone for help, he's embbarressed and feels he's young enough that he could still make his own money.  If you would ask him what can you do to help him, Joey's exact words would be" don't worry about me you have your own bills and family to take care of, I will figure out something" Joesph doesn't want to face the facts that he will not be going back to work any time soon and there there are people  out there that want to help with someone like him with this disease.
