Terrys Cancer Treatment Fund Round Four

My husband, Terry McCommas, was Diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer on September 25, 2017, that has spread to his liver. This diagnoses completely blindsided us. We went to the doctor because he was experiencing abdominal pains that we thought might be appendix or gall bladder related.
He spent 10 days in the hospital and underwent  surgery to remove the cancer from his colon, He will need lots of chemo treatments for the large masses in his liver. His Oncologist said surgery on his liver is not an option and that he will probably have to have chemo for the rest of his life. He finished Phase two of chemo that began in the middle of January, 2019. He will continue with chemo twice a month starting December 4, 2019.  It is unknown how long he will be on this chemo cocktail.

For those who know Terry, he is a hard worker and has been holding down a job to supplement his retirement benefits. Being unable to work because of cancer cuts his earning by more than half. I don't want him to be concerned with anything but fighting this Cancer.

Because of this illness our income has been significantly reduced, but our costs have risen over night, especially since Medicare started on December 1, 2019.  We went from $0 monthly premium to a little over $300 per month. In addition, the oncologist and nutritionist say that in order for him to be strong enough to endure the chemo treatments, his diet must change to include many supplements that add more expense to our already expanded grocery budget.  To fight the negative effects of the chemo he needs to consume about three times more per day than what he has been eating. The need is urgent. Terry will do his part to fight this Cancer. He just needs some sponsors to ease the financial burden. Thank you in advance for all your prayers, encouragement and help.
