Ivan's Cancer Fund


Aloha Friends & Family❤️
  Our baby boy Ivan was diagnosed with cancer !  Originally he was supposed to have the surgery on Maui, but because of the high difficulty of the surgery we had to fly to Honolulu, to the only surgeon in the state of Hawaii that could perform this very difficult procedure!!

Ivan had massive reconstructive surgery they removed a tumor the size of a golf ball!!  then and he had to have all the skin from his belly removed to make a skin flap/skin graph to cover the area of the tumor.  The surgery was extremely long &  difficult... and is Very painful surgery!  

The first couple days were very rough, then he turned a corner for the better! I can see the sparkle in his eyes he was walking and he was eating .
  Today he had a little bit of a setback! They had removed the drainage bag  from the skin flap  but then last night had produced fluid overnight and had to be aspirated with a needle. Our poor baby!
We have had to extended three times!  We're only supposed to be here three days and it's turned into two weeks !
We now have huge debt because his surgery & hospital stay was 10 times the amount we originally thought it was going to be! His insurance only covers $3000 per incident!
All The doctors and nurses say that me staying here is so good for him. because that's when he actually eats and shows happiness!!  when I'm not around him they say he screams for me !!
  Hopefully we will be able to bring him home next week for Thanksgiving! It would be the best Thanksgiving gift I could ever receive!!!
I have been unable to work and I'm drowning in debt now! I am asking for any help, PLEASE!! whatever you can give PLEASE would mean the world to us!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Thank you !!!  Keep sending that loving healing energy to our baby boy I know he's going to make it through this very difficult journey !!!! ❤️❤️
