Peter's Prostate Cancer Treatment

I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer February 2017, PSA 11.4; after further diagnosis, a Gleason score of 7 (3+4) was determined and dictated that action to remove needs to be taken or my life would be shorter. 
I have the opportunity to eliminate the cancer with HIFU (High Intensity Frequency Ultrasound); this is a new treatment, that is much easier on the body, just now approved for Medicare and Insurance coverage; how much this coverage will reduce the actual cost of $25,000 is unknown now.  The cost to me is estimated between $2,500 and $13,500 at this time.
The funds raised here will help me meet the needs of the providers not covered by insurance.  I have to pay a deposit of $8,500 that hopefully will be partially refunded as the Medicare and Insurance coverage is determined; that initial deposit is being covered by a friend.  The funds I raise here will pay my friend back and cover additional costs.  
The procedure is tentatively scheduled for either August 22 or 29.  
If there are excess funds raised, they will be donated to others needing financial help with their health concerns. 
I am a licensed Prayer Practitioner with Centers for Spiritual Living and a Certified Level 2 Instructor of Wisdom Healing Qigong; all donors can receive a healing session via phone, Skype or in person (if local to Sonoma County); just note that request when donating.
