Help Stacey Fight Cancer!

My sister was diagnosed with Cancer last year and all efforts were made using conventional methods.  As of now these methods have not worked and she is now in an even more difficult battle.  She and my family have decided to try the alternative treatment plan.  Of course with non FDA approval and the insurance company not paying, this could become a huge financial burden for my sisters family. The institute she will attend is in Grapevine Texas and the cost range is from $1000-$5000 a week.  Any funds will help to assist in living expenses and with medical treatment bills, past and present.  Treatment starts next week and this is urgent. Due to their family being reduced to one income because of the Cancer, the financial burden is becoming heavy.  I am deploying with the US Navy in the upcoming months or I would be out trying to raise money in other way's, but any help would be appreciated.  Thanks to any and all that would be willing to help my sister. She is a wife and a mother and does not deserve this hand being played, so I am trying to help any way I can.

Update 6/08 from Mark Locke.

Things have not been going well for Stacey recently. Last Tuesday, we made the difficult decision to get Hospice Care involved to help assist Stacey with pain management. It started with in home care for a few days, but that didn't seem to be helping. Monday evening (6/04) she was admitted to in-patient care at the Hospice facility. They have been able to get the medication dosage correct and now she is comfortable, but sleeping alot. Please keep Stacey in your thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.

4/20 Update.

It's been a rough few weeks. I had a follow-up with my urologist, the nephrostomy stays for now until all the infection clears my ureter and they are able to replace the nephrostomy tube with a stent.  Not ideal, but I'm alive. 

I am borderline anemic and was set up for a blood transfusion last week, but I caught some sort of stomach bug.  Was unable to even keep water in my system, so transfusion is rescheduled for next week.

Word to those who visit with cancer patients...our immune system sucks. You might not get it, but whatever you're carrying around could kill me.  Wash your hands and take care of yourself.

The institute is postponed until I  am stronger. My body is still too weak to sustain all the treatments. We will be starting some enzyme therapy after the transfusion.

My mom has been coming daily to make sure I'm getting enough nutrition. I'm really not, and it's slow, but we're working on it.

Thank you all for the continued support. We greatly appreciate it.

xoxo,
Stacey

What should have been a simple outpatient stent replacement turned into a hospital check-in because one of the stents had calcified too much to replace it.

Surgery was scheduled late afternoon to go through the back with an external tube into the kidney that empties into a bag that gets manually emptied at certain points.

At some point this will be replaced by a true stent, but we still need to talk to the doc about timing. This may or may not delay treatment at the institute, depending upon the length of time required to clear the calcium from the ureter and what the doc has to say to day.

We were discharged late last night and spent the night in our own beds.

Thank you all so much for your support. I can't begin to tell you all how much it means to my family. I will update as often as I can, when I have something to tell everyone.

Hugs and stuff!
