He had his first colonoscopy at the age of 63 which is when the tumor was discovered and doctors feel that its been growing at least a year. Without having medical insurance he has been having to pay for his visits as a cash patient. I'm sure anyone reading this knows the way medical treatment and insurance has taken a different path. Since Hector decided to become a citizen, although he's been living and working in the United States all his life, had he decided to not follow through to become a citizen and this situation happened all his medical would be covered because that's what our country has come to. So trying to do the right thing and paying into "our system" all these years has got him to this, no help, no exceptions Just Pay Cash.
While living on Social Security and working only part time you can imagine this is not easy. In the beginning doctors had recommended radiation to shrink the mass and possible chemotherapy. At this time my brother is going to have a procedure on May 14 in hopes that the mass can be removed without radiation treatment.
I will be posting updates here so be sure to check back.
Any donation made will be used to cover cost for his medical treatment and prescriptions that maybe needed. From all of us Marmolejo's, all across the country WE THANK YOU !
