Richard (my grandfather) was diagnosed with bladder cancer a few months back. This is the 3rd type of cancer he has fought in his life. He beat prostate, stage 4 tongue/throat cancer, and now is dealing with bladder cancer. After 6 weeks worth of immunotherapy injected a drug into his bladder, it did not get rid of any of the cancer. As a family, we went to Dana Farber to weigh the options available and neither chemo nor radiation will provide any benefit for this cancer... he is undergoing surgery to remove his entire bladder on December 27th. At 81 years old this surgery is extremely risky and stressful for all involved. The surgery and recovery will be a long one! Your donations will help Richard get the rest he needs to heal and fight, and lessen some of the stress he is facing at this difficult time.
