Save Martins Life

As a few of you know my father, Martin Teran, was diagnosed with STAGE 3 cancer in September 2017. His type of cancer is very rare and requires us to travel to MD Anderson in Houston, 600 miles away! We’ve spent a total of 2 months in hotels while they run tests and do a number of scans and biopsies. Unfortunately, the results have shown that his cancer has spread to his lymph nodes. This is very scary because if it spreads further his 5 year survival rate drops down to 10%. His doctor wanted to get him started on chemo/radiation right away! After waiting a week to see his Chemo doctor, he ended up not being able to start treatment because of his kidney levels. This was heart wrenching news... We headed home for a week then returned to Houston for his first surgery to remove some of the cancer. December 4th we got some great news, his kidney levels have improved enough to do chemotherapy! At the first of the year he will start 2 rounds of chemotherapy followed by another surgery. We are very anxious to start treatment.

As you can imagine, our journey thus far has been extremely costly with staying in hotels, medical bills piling up, and traveling costs. Plus, his normal bills! He would never ask for help, so I will ask for him. Just imagine going through what he is and not being able to go to work for 3+ month. So, please help and donate. Even if it’s $1, anything will help. Let’s get him through this together!!
