My brother Sean is a loving, Christian, family man, married to a wonderful, Christian woman. He has an adorable son who is in love with God. Sean served in the United States Marine Corps back in the late 80's, serving as an infantryman. Sean has now been told that he has stage 4 lung cancer with 5-6 months to live. He does not have the funds to assist in the battling of the cancer, nor the funds to help his wife and son if he was to loose the battle. I am raising the funds to help with costs during the fight and incase he passes the funds will help his wife and son in the future. The need is urgent due to the prognosis and short expectancy. They are very humble people and would never ask for a dime and would shoulder the burden on their own. Let's share the burdens and give some hope in a messed up situation. Let's spreads God's Love and Grace and support this Marine and his family. May God Bless you all and thank you. Prayers are always welcome and needed! As for the cancer, it is stage 4 lung inoperable lung cancer and it has spread to his lymph nodes, it is too large for radiation, so he is doing immunotherapy.

Here is an update about the cost of Sean's treatments.
For my immunotherapy alone, the drug cost is $60,000. That does not include the associated costs from CARTI for the nurses and staff. I then found out the cost for ONE of the chemo drugs I am taking, its price tag is $196,000. I have received bills for $44,000 and just been informed that a bill has gone out for $209,000. With these revelations, a sickening realization hit me that many people had always said, but until you are in it, you don't realize it.

Ask yourself this, with all the advancements we have had in science, why is there cure for the simple cold? Think about it. Now, consider all the cold medicine that a family must by each year to combat this simple cold. Do you think a company is going to make more of a profit off a cure for the cold or the treatment every year? Now apply the same argument to cancer. The price they charge, as we have seen, is ridiculous. Do you think they could cure cancer? With all the advancements, you would think there would be. Yet, to cure a patient is to lose cash flow

Sean is doing okay- he is currently doing chemotherapy and immunotherapy. The Lord has blessed him so far in that he only feels tired and not sick. The other news is not great- the cancer has spread to his brain so he will have to endure more scans and then radiation therapy for the spot on the brain. He has not lost his sense of humor- complaining that the chemo has not taken the hair away!- still has to shave
I want to thank everyone who has been praying and contributing. with the news as it is please share this and ask people to prayerfully consider helping Sean and Tonya- they will need every pray and dime that they can get.
Through it all Sean is remaining strong and his faith has not wavered. This just keeps coming and without Tonya this would be even harder.
Please lift up Sean and Tonya, the struggles are rough. The good thing is the Lord has promised to switch loads with us. Only He can deal with this.

Sean received the results of his last scan today. it is not very good news. the following is what he sent: The results are in. The largest mass has not changed. The two painful ones on the back of the lung have grown bigger. So have the lymph nodes. There is also "something" on the brain that requires an MRI. Through prayer and scripture, I have decided to go ahead with chemo. I will start weekly treatments next week. The good news is God is still in control and my faith is with Him. Also, I will lose all my hair! No more shaving!!
