Leslie also developed encephalopathy from the treatment and is mentally incapacitated due to swelling of the brain.
Leslie has lost her job and income as a result of her illness. Her insurance will be cut off in a couple weeks, so we have to figure out a way to keep that insurance to continue to pay for her medical treatments.
Leslie is home now and still very weak and unable to be left alone. Adam took a leave from his job, but must return to work this week. Their usual bills are going to be due soon ..car payment, insurance, electric, etc. The usual bills we all have.. They currently, literally have no money...
Leslie is going to continue treatments of Ketruda, which is an auto-immune drug. It has shrunk the tumor in her tongue, so it's doing it's job. We just have to make sure she is able to keep getting the treatments.
This is a very urgent need for Leslie and Adam.
We, the family, want to thank in advance, each person for any donation you can give to help.... this may sound trite, but from my heart I believe that you will be blessed in your own life...
Again, thank you !!
