A few months later, Luis reached out to his doctor who referred him to a Podiatrist for a checkup. Based on his symptoms, the Podiatrist told him that it was most likely Plantar Fasciitis and asked him to get shoes with solid soles, a pair of insoles and a night splint. Luis immediately went out and purchased the recommended items and followed his doctor's instructions.
After a few weeks, Luis felt like these modifications helped the pain a little bit, but it wasn't really getting better. After going back to the doctor, he was ordered to get X-rays. This is when the doctor noticed that there was an abnormal section on the bone of his foot and asked him to get an MRI scan to further look into this. The doctor then referred him to an Orthopedic Oncologist who has determined that Luis has bone cancer in his foot.
Unfortunately, the damage is too extensive and the best course of action will be amputation. Surgery has been scheduled for this Friday, November 17th. Luis will also be undergoing a PET scan soon to see if the cancer has spread.
Due to these very unfortunate circumstances, Luis will have a lot of unforeseen medical expenses coming up in the very near future. In that Luis devotes his life to helping others, I would like us all to rally together and give back to him in his time of need. Please find it in your heart to donate whatever you can to show our support for our very kind friend, Luis. He is very appreciative for the outpouring of love and support and it is helping him get through these very dark times. Thank you in advance for your support!
