Rusty wasnt an easy target..cancer didnt know that

I haven't posted in a while there was both too much and too little to say. Everyday Rusty fights this horrible disease, every day I fight with him...beside him all the way.  We knew the battle would be hard but the definition I had of hard went out the window along with the highest level of determination I could comprehend. Rusty surpassed both and redefined impossible to become possible.

A recent MRI & CScans revealed the places of most concern kidney, lungs, brain,  where the cancer had been were now clear. If the report had only stopped there... It seems now it has eaten into the bones in both shoulders causing him a great deal of pain. It is also on the roof of his sphenoid bone behind his eyes and in his spine. The plan is to do Radiation on his shoulders and spine and treat the one behind his eyes with the Cyberknife. The Radiation treatment will go for 2 weeks straight, 5 days a week. The Cyberknife will be 3-4 treatments. All while continuing his current treatment We have been warned of the side effects and he is ready without hesitation for whatever it brings.
Treatment will start very soon.

His shoulders are making it very hard for him to get out of his chair and the treatment may require that we find a place closer to the treatment center for his health and comfort. He is in need of medical equipment such as a lift chair and numerous other items to help him stay mobile. He is also having trouble holding things in his hands like his phone. These are the kind of things he needs but are not covered as he is not yet on Medicare or Medicaid along with all the bone and blood supplements he takes. I can't bring any money in without turning him over to an outside caregiver and that is never going to happen...so here I am, asking for help. He needs relief, I need relief for him. He doesn't have an expiration date and I don't have a load limit sign......brother and sister to the end and beyond.

Rusty is a warrior in the truest sense of the word. He is 1000% convinced that he will not only beat this vile disease but that he will return to his old self... there is not one shred of doubt in his mind and I believe in him so there ya go.
