Killing Cancer

If there's two things I really don't like, it's spilling my guts and asking for help. Sometimes, we have to deal with the very stuff we hate. Speaking of things I hate, cancer pretty much takes the cake these days. As many of you know, my dad, Tommy Estes, was diagnosed with pancreatic in January of 2016. Immediately, we were sent to a reputable doctor at Baylor in Dallas. When the treatment process was proposed and statistics were discussed, my dad decided conventional treatment was not going to offer him much of a fighting chance or any quality of life really. He began researching all day every day, until the point where he said his eyes would literally no longer focus on his computer screen -- we all did. Over the last year and a half, he has done numerous alternative and natural therapies under various holistic and natural practitioners. He has done really well up until the last few months. We are now at a pretty critical point and have decided to pursue treatment at an alternative clinic in Mexico. Because alternative treatment is not covered under insurance, my parents have spent a small fortune on his treatment up until this point. The cost of the treatment we are currently pursuing is $30,000 for 3 weeks of in-house treatment. If you feel so inclined, you can contribute to this cause. More than that though, we really covet your prayers. This last year and a half has been grueling and trying to say the least. We are emotionally drained, stressed, anxious, and scared about what the future holds. Please pray for guidance and provision as we continue to fight.
