After two years of taking daily chemotherapy, and visiting Houston about 5 times a year, they did perform a Whipple on me. The stay for the operation and recovery was just over a half month. I have had to continue to go to Houston about 3 times a year for the last two post-op years, going again in December.
The massive amount of travel has cost us a great deal of money. We had many family and friends help us along the way. All that giving kept us out of bankruptcy; however we still amassed a good deal of debt. We had to open 2 new credit card accounts to keep up with the hotels and air travel. We accumulated around $20,000 in new credit card debt for the cancer cost alone.
We have been in full-time ministry for 22 years, just making enough to pay our bills. My wife has been a teacher for the last 11 years, so again not a lot of income. For the last year I have worked a second job to help pay down debt so that we can attack the cancer debt. We do not drive new cars, or live luxuriously. We hope that you can help. Even if you are not able to help, please pray that others will.
