In October, multiple nodes were found on the scan. A further PET scan in December showed growth on the pelvic wall, a lymph node in the chest, growths on the peritoneal sac, and others. The doctor said the tumors are inoperable due to their locations and that chemotherapy would possibly buy some time, but they have no hope of curing it and his opinion is that Ronnie will die from this cancer at some point.
Ronnie immediately reached out to locate people who had undergone cancer treatments in Mexico. Ronnie will be going to a clinic in Tijuana, Mexico to undergo treatments and other protocols that have worked for patients who were only offered palliative care here in the U.S.
Team Ronnie Mills is raising funds to begin treatments immediately. These funds will not be used to buy Christmas presents, to pay bills or credit cards, or for any other purpose than expenses incurred as a result of these treatments. These funds will be used to pay for treatment, to pay for the travel costs to treatment, doctor visits and follow-ups. A separate account has been set up specifically for this fund.
Friends of Ronnie Mills Medical Updates is a Facebook group where we post regular updates and we will post them on here too. If you would like to be part of our fundraising team, we would love to have you join us. In addition to this GoFundMe, an account is set up at Texas Bank in Brownwood called Ronnie Mills Benefit Account. Contributions can be made there as well.
We want to thank everyone who has joined with us in prayer. We believe that our faith in God sometimes requires us to lay down our life - both figuratively and literally. But we do not believe that God's will is for anything to TAKE our life without our consent. We fully expect victory in this battle and that many, many others will be blessed as a result of this journey.
Therefore, if you see us out and about, please rejoice with us for the health that Ronnie has, and for the healing that God has in store for him! We are not sad about this situation, we see it for what it is - an opportunity for God to show his power and His ability to match our calamity with serenity. We are finite, but He is infinite!
Thank you for your support!!!
