Buck and I have decided to be honest about the situation. We have maxed out our cards trying to pay for his treatments. Buck has been single covered with insurance for the passed year. We are doing everything we can to still pay something on our bills to the hospital as they continue to send us to collections. We have been informed that his clinical trial didn't work. His cancer is still spreading. We have to do a test that costs 6,000 dollars in order to see if we have other treatment options. Insurance doesn't cover this test. We are running out of time. Originally this go fund me was for us to have a baby. That is a long way away and we would much rather have Buck in our lives. I am asking from the bottom of our hearts for a little help. We have so much pride and this completely deminishes it.  To those people that donated to help us with a baby thank you so much. Your money will go to the down payment for this test. Buck and I have never had to struggle paycheck to paycheck like this. We have had so much love and help already and we couldn't be more thankful. If there is anyway you would be willing to help us by spreading the word we would be eternally greatful. Thank you so much for reading and possibly donating to keep my Buckalew here. I don't know where I would be without him.

Much love,
Shantelle Buckalew

Today was another day of rough news. Buck is going to start hospice on Monday December 28th. They said he might be down to only weeks left. They can't do any chemo or other treatments because it is a high risk of making his brain bleed due to the small stroke he had a couple weeks ago. Things are not easy right now. We still aren't giving up but everyday is a struggle for buck. He's exhausted and fighting so hard. He's so strong. Much love to everyone who has been there for us. We'll do everything we can to keep you up to date. Thank you so much. Xoxo

I have been dreading this update. This is so hard. Buck is retaining a lot of fluid now. Meaning his liver isn't processing very well. He is pretty sick right now. He is getting a drain placed in tomorrow. The doc told us that he doesn't have any clinical trial options anymore. He is down to only a couple choices. He can do one more oral chemo that has a small chance of prolonging his life. Or he can just be made as comfortable as possible and live it out. He is choosing to fight because he is amazing. I love him so much thank you all for everything you've done to be there for us.

Always a constant battle with the hospital. They just served us papers over medical bills.

UGH!

Well family and friends I have some news. I know this isn't what you want to see and I'm sorry but it's the update you regularly ask for. Recently we met with the doctor. We discussed the constant and fast spread of buck's cancer. He was dropped from the clinical trial. He was also notified that with the severity of the spread he no longer has years to live. He is most likely down to months. Now this is not us saying we are giving up. Buck will still start a new chemo treatment in the beginning of December. It is a strong chemo, he will be sick and now lose all of his hair. He won't stop fighting. Things are going to get harder from here on out. I wish that I had better news. All I can say right now is love those people that matter in your life. Enjoy the holidays you have and be thankful for the ones in your life. You never know how quickly things can change. Thanks to those people that been there for us and donated it means so much. We love you all.
xoxo- Shantelle Buckalew
