After a year in remission Tre's cancer returned.  This time in both his face and lungs. After 6 months of Chemotherapy he is now preparing to enter a trial treatment at MD Anderson in Houston, Texas. He and his family will be incurring many expenses as the treatment will require him to stay in Houston for the first 3 weeks and overnight once every week after that. Because it's a trial we do not know how long the treatment will be.
Tre was the sole income provider for his family and is currently unable to work. Please show support for the Trevino family in this pressing time by donating funds to help them with their upcoming travel expenses.
The Trevino's are very grateful for your generosity.

Just arrived back to MDA for a follow up/chemo administration and monitoring. (I'm also just realizing my update, from here, last Wednesday didn't post - last week all my tests came out good so I was able to begin the trial treatment(chemo) on Wednesday. While it is oral chemo, it still kicked my butt the first few days which I slept most of it. There have been a few side effects such as major fatigue, little nausea, sore/swollen gums & taste buds and a few other things. Otherwise all went well and I was home before the weekend)
I'm doing blood work, physical exam and getting chemo meds now. If all goes well I'll be able to go home for the weekend again, just like last week. If certain blood levels are too high/low I may have to stay through early next week. We're staying positive that all will go well this time again. Thank you all for your support.

Hello everyone!
We seem to finally be making some progress. I had a series of tests and scan last week at MD Anderson. Kristen and I leave tomorrow to go back to MDA for a few more tests and should all of those come back good, we will get to start treatment on Wednesday! We don't want to jinx anything, but I'm hoping our next update will be from MDA on Wednesday once my treatment has started. Saying prayers and fingers crossed! Thank you all again for your support!

Hello everyone, sorry for the delayed update. Unfortunately there is not too much to report at this point in regards to the trial treatment that we hope to begin soon. When we visited MD Anderson, in addition to learning what’s involved with the treatment we also learned that the only portion that is covered within the trial is the actual drug itself.
The rest of the treatment (and associated costs) such as blood work, doctor visits, scans, tests, etc. fall to the patient. At the moment, the social worker that was assigned to me is negotiating with my insurance to find out what they are willing to cover, since they are technically NOT required to cover most of the associated cost since it’s a trial.
We are waiting to hear back from my social worker as to the estimated costs that will be left to us each month that I’m receiving treatment. We were told that it’s on average about a 2 week process to negotiate with the insurance. That holding true, we hope begin treatment by Monday, 1/23.
On the plus side, we were told that there are lots of financial assistance programs that I can apply for to help offset some of the costs that we will be left with. Once we hear back from my social worker with a start date and initial schedule, we will send out another update.
Kristen and I want to thank everyone for your continued support and encouragement. It means more to us than we could begin to express with words.

After a wet and frozen drive from Austin, we have made it to Houston/MD Anderson. We will soon learn what is in store for us for the next few months. We'll be happy to share once we know more.
I would like to take a moment to remember a dear friend of mine who lost his battle with cancer on Dec. 30th. His Celebration of Life is today in Austin, which we am utterly disappointed we are going to miss.
"Wayne you will always be missed & never forgotten my friend!"
