Travel pay for clinical trials

 Darrell Burton is Need of your help for Medical and Travel expense for Clinical Trial In 2006 Darrel was diagnosed with a rare form of Cancer at the young age of 23. Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Stage 4. With an extremely aggressive treatment plan of daily radiation for 4 months and chemo therapy Darrell did beat this ugly Cancer, with long term affects from radiation damage such as loss of 50+% of his saliva glands, skin damage and gum damage these are all things that he has learned to deal with. Once Treatment was done and he was cleared there was a small spot on the scan in his neck where the tumor was, they called in a surgeon to do a biopsy what ended up being scar tissue this surgeon took it upon himself to remove 34 lymph nodes in doing so he cut into Darrell’s main nerve leaving him disabled for life. Now at the age of 35 Darrell’s quality of life is diminishing rapidly he now suffers from CERVICAL SCOLIOSIS WITHOUT MYELOPATHY. This has forced his shoulders and spine to pull forward, everything under the cut nerve is dying. He has lost 40 pounds because he can not swallow food, he passes out a lot and is in a lot of pain and discomfort. Darell has a Wife and 2 children Madison 7 and Brandon 6. His wife Harmony has been the primary income, who suffers from Kidney disease works 55 to 65 hours a week, she has missed precious time with her family, she spend countless hours researching clinical trials all over the states only to be told his progression is to far gone for them to help. Several trips to specialist only to be told we’ve never seen anything like this! His children ask what is wrong with Daddy and when will he get better. Now Harmony has gotten him accepted into the Vanderbilt University in Nashville Tennessee Clinical Trials for Nerve Regeneration. Darrell is a good candidate for these trials in the fact they has the core blood from when Madison was born, this is invaluable in these studies. We are in hopes that this trial can help this family and provide Darrell with some comfort so that he has a better future and quality of life with his children. PLEASE MAKE A DONATION TO THIS FAMILY IN NEED OF YOUR HELP! DARRELL’S QUALITY OF LIFE DEPENDS ON IT
