37509576_1553554230267452_r.jpegDana West. Grandfather, friend, spouse and amazing person. He has worked over seas  with the military , to help our soldiers. He came home only to find out that he was diagnosed with cancer. Stage IV Colon Cancer as well as  6 rumors on the lungs, one on the adrenal gland, 6 tumors on the brain as well.  He first found out in 2006 an then it reoccurred in 2012.  It has also been discovered that he now has one on his rib that is extremely large. He has been doing sereval different types fo treatment. Contiuned chemo an surgeries. Which are extremely hard on the body. Causing him to be lethargic, not want to eat, get continuous migraines and overall not be himself.  This sitation has been very hard on family. It is something that can not be cured but only treated. Because of the one that is in his head he lost his peripheral  vision in both eyes  because the optic never had been damaged. That is something that he can never get back. Therefor he is now unable to drive on top of being in constant pain an unable to eat. Addition to the medication that cost very much every mouth we now discovered that his chemo is 2600 a month. I am not sure if the doctor understands how hard things have been on us or him. However,  we do not have that kind of money. We have reached out to the manufacter and other sources. We were unsuccessful to receive help from anyone. I am now reaching out to anyone who would be willing to help with this situation. Anything you could help with would mean the world. One of the smartest men I know is suffering and I need to find a way to help. Please share this with friends an family and if you have other resources that could be helpful please let me know. Anything is appreciated.
