As many of you are already aware, these past few months have been a rollercoaster of emotions and uncertainty for the Davis family.
It was during that time that our amazing dad and papa, Kent Davis, was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer with metasteses to his liver. Surgery in March removed the tumor in his colon, but follow up tests revealed that additional therapies would be required to address the remaining cancer.
Kent has been working on addressing his cancer at a cellular level and has utilized the most advanced nutrition, supplementation and alternative modalities to prepare his body to undergo the needed chemotherapy.
We have great faith that this is the direction that is needed to eradicate the cancer and continue his healing process.
Kent and his wife, Kim, have already met with a specialist in Reno, Nevada and will be returning in late June for at least three weeks and potentially longer to undergo the chemotherapy treatment along with a continued focus on nutrition and supplements.
As you can imagine there are large costs associated with alternative/integrative treatment as only a small percentage is covered by insurance. Additionally, there is travel, accommodations, medication, nutrition, supplementation and the doctor visits to consider.
The immediate treatment cost is $10,000 plus $3,000-10,000 a week for chemotherapy and supplements. The travel and living expenses will be $2,700 the first week alone.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Family and friends have created this campaign in an effort to provide immediate financial relief and assist with the sudden and exorbitant costs associated with Kent's treatment and complete healing.
We are humbly calling on our extended family, friends and even strangers to help in the following ways so that Kent, Kim and family can focus on his treatment and recovery:
- Donate something. No amount is too small, and every contribution will go directly to Kent's treatment and recovery.
- Share this GoFundMe campaign on all of your social media.
- Leverage any other resources you have to meet various needs and help spread the word. If you have gift cards, hotel points, airline miles or other services that might meet some needs feel free to message us.
Our parents, Kent and Kim, have affected countless lives as missionaries, pastors, and entrepreneurs in the service of God and others. We ask that you help them reach these immediate goals as quickly as possible as Kent is scheduled to start treatment in late June.
Thank you for your love and generosity!
