Wayne's cancer fight fund

This is my friend Wayne Bryan he’s been my friend for many years, he has spent his life serving, protecting, and helping others any way he can.  He spent 10 years of his life serving in the Marine Corps, after that career path ended he moved on to protecting others as a police officer for 5 years, and for the past 14 years he has been a nurse.  In 2013 Wayne was diagnosed with colon cancer and underwent surgery with a very low rate of reoccurrence.  Two weeks ago the unimaginable happened he started to have pain in his abdomen, after further testing 4 tumors were discovered, at this point in time the doctors are not sure what type of cancer it could be so they are calling it metastatic since surgery is too risky for were the tumors are located. The doctors plan of attack at this point in time is to start with high doses of chemo therapy not even to attempt to cure him but to just to keep the tumors from getting any bigger and crushing a major artery. They cannot at this time give him a prognosis of if he will ever beat this or a lifespan all they can tell him is that this chemo will last for the rest of his life, which means he can no longer work in his profession as a nurse and the doctors are recommending that he not work again at all. 

 

The VA is helping him work on financial support but they are saying that it could take 6 months to a year for these benefits to start, and with his chemo starting November 27,2017  he will have no money to pay his bills, food, or gas for transportation to and from his chemo treatments witch take place in Cleveland. 

 

Wayne up until a few weeks ago was an active outdoors man who loved to spend time with his two girls, and his fiancé.  He would give you the shirt off his back if he could, now he’s in so much pain that he can no longer enjoy the things he used to, and the doctors can’t say if that pain will ever subside.  Any help that he could get would be greatly appreciated to take one worry away from him and he can put all of this energy into fighting this cancer and spending as much time with his family as he can.
