Bud's medical fund

As most of you already know on Oct 9, 2017, I made my brother go to the ER with extreme back pain; he was diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer that has already metastasized out the hip socket, into the muscle and encasing his sciatic nerve. He was in extreme pain and it took months before the doctors finally got his pain under control. We have finished with the chemo and radiation treatments where he was given the most radiation a person could take. In this process the radiation burned up his insides and the hip bone itself causing the pain to increase once again. Since October my brother has not been able to work or even drive and thank God my mother was able to pay for his medications plus his truck payment and insurance. We have spent well over $15,000 dollars in the last 4 months in order to make sure that he gets his meds and stays out of pain as much as possible. What we are facing now is that we are out of money and his disability has not kicked in yet so we are setting up this fundraiser in order to get his meds this month. We pray that by next month his disability will have kicked in and then the meds will be paid for by medicade. Bud has gone from taking no medications to taking 11 prescription meds; the 2 pain meds cost over $1,200 a month.... with all meds and his truck payment totaling about $3,000 a month.  Our prayer is that all you that love Bud will help out this month and trust me any amount helps and much prayer is needed. Bud will get his MRI's done this week to see what is exactly going on and then next week his 3 doctors will let us know the next plan. We do believe in miracles and God's grace and mercy is what is making Bud strong enough to get through this battle. We appreciate all of your prayers and concern and I will continue to try and keep you all updated. You know Bud loves each and every one of you as do I............so please help us to do this and not have to live under the worry of no money................God gets all the GLORY.......too much loved, Bud's sista, tamalama
