Help with Cancer Treatment

In June of 2016 my primary care doctor at the Asheville, NC VA medical hospital found a growth in my sinus cavity. I later went on to learn that this growth was a squamous papilloma tumor that was invasive/malignant. Since then I have undergone three surgeries for tumor removal but now my doctors are telling me that I need radiation. The only catch is that since the cancer is in my face, I will require a specialized radiation treatment called Proton radiation due to the fact that traditional radiation poses a high risk of damaging my eyesight. I am starting the account because VA Choice (my only insurance) will not cover this form of radiation due to its "specialized" type. The treatments are approximately $1100/day and I will require seven weeks of Monday through Friday treatments, which comes to a rough total of $38,000. These funds will go towards the treatment costs and housing to stay in Knoxville, TN at the Provision CARES Proton Radiation Institute. My doctor says that I need this radiation as soon as possible in order for my tumors to not develop re-growth. Any help that you can provide will be more than enough. Thank you and God Bless!
