Tyrone's fight to beat cancer

In December 2015 my husband Tyrone was diagnosed with stage 2 testicular cancer.  We were told he had a 97% chance for it to be cured with chemotherapy.  Tyrone completed 12 weeks of very harsh treatments and was deemed in remission with great scan results in March 2017.  A couple weeks ago he started complaining of pain near his kidney, so we took a trip to the ER.  The scan they took showed that his cancer was back.  Later that week we met with his oncologist and discovered it came back aggresivly and had spread near his lungs, under arm, stomach and near his kidney.  His doctor also told us he was now in stage 3c and had a 50/50% chance to be cured if he underwent treatments once again. 
The doctor would like Tyrone to start his treatment as soon as next week (7/24/2017).  His treatments last anywhere from 8-5hrs per day, 5 days a week for 12 weeks.  During treatments he will be too sick to work and because all of this occured before his disability policies kicked in, he will not receive any source of income. 
We are very blessed to have the support we do and we thank god for our great friends and family.  It has been hard up to this point and it will only get harder when he starts his chemo.  Raising 3 active boys with school coming up and trying to live as normal as possible, keeping our family together and as stree free during this time is what is really importaint to us. 
I (Jessica) am continuing to work full time to support my family, but am not able to cover all of the bills that will be coming in.  :(  As much as we hate asking for help, we hope to be able to raise some money as soon as possible to be able to cover medical expenses such as deductables, treatment costs, medicines, ect; as well as cover our normal monthly bills.  However, any help is welcome with open arms and prayers are needed more than ever.

Thank You,
