Rigo's Battle

My husband Rigo got diagnosed with Germinoma cancer in August 2016. He went through chemotherapy treatment, September, October and November. After treatment, he had a surgery to remove the remaining piece of the tumor that chemo didn't destroy. Everything was going well. We went to his check up in April 2017 and he was considered cancer free. Then it came back in July. The cancer had spread to his brain, causing a weakness on his left leg and arm. They found three tumors on his brain. He went under surgery to remove all three of the tumors from his brain. Surgery was a success but now my husband needs radiation treatment to destroy any cancer cells that might have been left behind from surgery. He hopefully will be starting treatment sometime next week, as soon as it is authorized from the insurance. We have come under financial difficulties with hospital bills, doctor visits and other bills that we have acquired. The insurance helps with a portion but we have to pay the rest. We are still receiving bills from hospital stays from August 2016. We ask for your donations to help us through this time in need. My husband is a very loving and caring man. He is the love of my life and this has been a rough journey for us both, but with God by our side we have been able to pull through. We are very hopefull that my husband will beat cancer again. God willing and it will be the last time he will fight this battle. From my husband and myself, thank you !!!! ❤️
