TJ is the youngest and strongest of our parents 3 children. In July 2016, at the age of 28 he was diagnosed with stage three colon/rectal cancer . He has been in and out of hospitals from October 2016 to September 2017 following the traditional route of chemotherapy, radiation and colostomy .
We thought the worst was behind us as TJ was adjusting to his new life with a permanent ostomy bag,when we were dealt a heavy blow this Christmas. Suffering from unbearable pain, he was rushed to the Hospital and 2 surgeries later, his doctors confirmed our worst fears...his cancer had returned.
Radiation is no longer an option as TJ has been given his lifetime quota of radiation. Also, his chemotherapy options are very limited, too limited to give us a good prognosis.
Doctors have recommended surgery, however it has not been approved by the insurance and TJ is very weak. This 4th major surgery is going to be very difficult on his body, especially since he's done 3 major surgeries in less than 12 months. The recovery period has become very difficult and painful for him with no guarantees of success.
We have however, been handed a lifeline through an alternative therapy option called "Ozone Therapy" and believe it's our best chance at saving TJ's life. In addition to being a natural alternative to eradicate cancer, TJ will be educated on how to follow a healthy diet to maximize his chances at a cancer free life.
The "Ozone Therapy" will be 3 times per week over an 8 month period and is geared towards creating a hostile environment within the body that makes it impossible for cancer cells to survive. The total cost of therapy, special diet, minerals and supplements will be $34,000 which unfortunately TJ's insurance company will not cover either.
We believe that this is our brother's best chance of beating his cancer and we ask for your support in reaching our Goal.
