medical&travel expenses for Steven

Dec. 5th 2017 is a day i will never forget.  When I went to the hospital for what I thought was a blood clot only to be told i had 9 months to live depending on how I responded to treatment.  Turns out that blood clot was part of stage 4 Large B-cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.  By the time I was diagnosed the cancer was already in my Liver, Kidneys, Bladder, Adrenal Glands and Lymphnodes. I also had a massive tumor on my left side from my lower abdomen down through my growing and into my left leg making it to much of a risk for surgical removal.  Now just a few short days ago the dr.s told me the cancer has now spread to my central nervous system (CNS) and possibly my brain. I had to have a port put in my skull to allow direct chemo injections into my brain. This whole process has been extremly taxing both mentally and physically.  Not to mention financially.  Right now im having to drive 1 hour to the lab that does my chemo injections twice a week plus pain management dr.s, my oncologist appointments, and trips to another lab to monitor my blood cells.  every 21 days  I have to do 5 day long chemo infusions at the hospital and to say they are challenging would be a understatement. Im on 14 different medications that are expensive even with co-pays. During all of this ive been unable to see my son because i havent had the funds to go to my dr.s and go see my son. i made the dicission to fight the cancer in hopes that once im well ill be able to see him as often as posdsible but its been extremly hard doing this and only getting to watch him grow through pictures and videos. So the reason im asking for help is to cover the trips to the dr.s, help with my medications and if by the grace of god possibly enough to make the trip to gosee my son. Anything helps and if youre unable to help financially please pray for gods healing touch so my son doesnt grow up never knowing or remembering his dad. THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!
