Last wish is to travel the country

STAGE 4BLarge B- Cell Lymphoma Burt went to the hospital January 7, 2018 thinking it was just a gallbladder attack or pancreatitis and Dr. Stated CT was negative for anything and had a cute pancreatitis and aftere 4 days the hospital sent him home. Due to increasing pain I brought him to a different hospital 3 days later thinking the pancreatitis was worsening although, nothing prepared us for what we would hear next. The Dr. Confirmed after repeating a CT Burt had a large mass in his stomach pushing or possibly attached to his pancreas! We knew we were facing the unknown and over the following 2 weeks Burt's Dr. Got intouch with a Dr. at Tampa General who would preform a EUS to what we thought was to confirm a Beign tumor.. once again we were faced with even more devastating news that the biopsy revealed Burt had Stage 4B Large B-Cell Lymphoma and that it was very aggressive. Burt ended up in the Tampa General ER a week later in severe pain not being able to stand or walk. They admitted him to be seen by his oncologist the next day instead of having to wait 3 week's for the appointment. Thankfully we went to ER because Oncologist stated he would not have made it to his first appointment because of how aggressive the cancer was it had spread to all of his lymph nodes, chest and stomach. Burt started treatment started while in Tampa General and was kept for a total of 2 weeks. As of March 23rd Burt has completed 3 of the 6 Chemo treatments and labs showed his cancer marker was going back up and Pet scan showed his tumor was shrinking slower then expected and cancer was still in all lymph nodes, stomach and chest. Burt has now completed 5 of the 6 treatments and it did shrink the cancer but, did not put it into remission.  Burt knows the treatments gave him a little more time to check off bucket list. Burt wants to travel the country before he gets to sick so we will be setting out across country and making his dream reality If you would like to help in his making his wish come true we would be so grateful for any help. We have acquired a truck and looking for camper now and then we will fulfill his last dream.Thank you and God bless
