Still surviving

This photo I took in September of 2016 while in the neuro ICU of banner university of Arizona hospital. I was waiting for the weekend to pass to have an almost emergency craniotomy to remove a 4cm tumor that was on my left frontal lobe. At that point I had already been fighting melanoma for well over a year with what’s called a bilateral neck dissection to remove cancerous lymph nodes in my neck. Having the cancer spread to my brain automatically made me a stage 4 cancer patient and considered terminal. Since that time I had to resign my career, I had to drop out of my college classes that I was studying registered nursing. I had thought I was beating the cancer and I wanted to help people. Over time I had lost my money from my retirement and am now on social security disability. I had to sell my motorcycles and my beautiful home since I could not afford them and I didn’t have the strength and energy to ride and take care of such a large house. I’m hoping those out there will see this and contribute. I may be doing well with my cancer treatment at the moment, but cancer is evil and unpredictable. For example my dad had been fighting colon cancer for years. His treatment had been doing great, he had been strong to keep going. His treatments stopped working and within a couple months he passed away on Father’s Day of 2018. Everything has been so hard lately and just a little bit of freedom from worry would do wonders for me.

I’ve been having an even worse time lately. Have no money to eat, no medicine because I can’t afford them, I don’t know what to do.

Thank you for reading and thank you for considering donating.

I want to start off by saying thank you to the generous people that have donated to help me out of that jam I was in. I’m all good again, sort of. As good as I can get I guess.

Unfortunately I have to ask for more if people can find it in their hearts to help more. They changed my insurance to medicair, so I have to pay more for medical stuff. I need to have scans to see where I’m at fighting this cancer, but I barely receive enough to live as it is.

I hate asking for help. I hate it so much, I was always a giver and being a taker hurts me to the core.

Bless you all.
