Rally for Ricks Cancer Treatment

My father is an inspiration to those around him, he works countless hours to provide for his family. He never complains, and never asks for help. He is a go getter with a god loving spirit.

June of 2018 our family was brought to their knees with my fathers final diagnoses of Adenocarcinoma, a rare type of cancer. The doctors gave him one option, surgical removal of the tumor. Upon the removal of the tumor they immediately suggested removal of the bladder, prostate, and surrounding lymph nodes (without any testing to see if the cancer had spread to those areas). The procedure to create a new bladder would forever change my fathers way of life.

My dad is a god loving man. He turned to prayer for guidance in his decision making, he has done everything in his power to beat this on his own. He has drastically changed his diet to all plant based, consumes a gallon of alkaline water a day, as well as various supplements to strengthen his immune system. His daily regiment is one that takes serious discipline.

My dad has given up on the United States medical system, as his insurance company has turned a blind eye to him, and has DENIED him access to the tests he needs.

We have found hope in Frankfurt Germany, where they have a program that focuses on strengthening your immune system organically. The program targets the specific tumor with direct hypothermia treatments, as well as focusing on oxygenation of the blood (this program is outlawed by the FDA here in America.) It is here in Germany where they have seen a phenomenal success rate in curing cancer patients.

The programs duration is four weeks and will cost 40,000 dollars (his insurance covers nothing.)

To those of you who are reading this and you know my father know that he is always there for you when you need him. He is a listening ear, the voice of reason, a true friend, and a light to this world. He is a humble man who never asks for help when he needs it most, and that is why I am asking you. My father and my family need you, and I pray that some of you find it in your heart to donate, whether It be financially, sharing this post, or a prayer, anything helps.

Thank You,

The Carrel Family.
