Josh Bathes Stage 4 Cancer Bucket List

#SHARE #SHARE #SHARE

As you all may know I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Esophageal Cancer. You may not know this is an extremely rare form of cancer especially in someone my age. I had initially been giving a chance at a few years left under treatment. We had a turn for the worst and unfortunately after quickly developing a shortness of breath and uncontrollable dry coughing. Several tests showed that I had quite a bit of fluid that had build up in the membrane around my heart. 38586746_1555553376364923_r.jpegThis was right at a liter total. Throughout the night they extracted another liter. They have also noted that I   may have fluid in my lungs or possibly cancer metastasis. If the fluid around my heart and if my lungs do have cancer metastasis (which we will know in a couple days) then most likely we will discontinue my chemotherapy treatments. If this happens idk how much time I will have left months possibly weeks. 
We have had some successful donation drives and myself and my family are so very grateful for all the support and continued prayers. We wouldn’t haven’t have been able to make it this far without you. 
At this point with me not knowing what could happen or will happen.  I‘m scared. There is a lot I wish I had time to. A lot of things I’d like to see. Because of your all’s help I have been able to get all the medicine I’ve needed and also have several experiences with people I love.
I’ve qualified for disability and been approved, however they are literally making me wait 6 months of being physically disabled and refuse to allow me to work during that time. Also there will be no back pay for those months! 
I hate to ask again but if anyone has a little extra
that they could spare to help me get out and live these last few weeks or months to the max.
God Bless,
Josh Bathe
