When my father was diagnosed with colon cancer a few months ago, my family & I were devastated. But were a little relieved to find out it was only stage 2 and was operable. The surgery was done, the tumor was removed and his recovery was going really well. Everything was looking positive and bright. Until we received the results of the pathology report showing that they hadn't gotten all the cancer out and it had spread. He was going to have to go through chemotherapy treatments for about 6 months. Everything was moving forward as planned until the treating doctor tells us they can't do the treatment until they get a certain percentage of the co-payment. My father is disabled and on limited funds, there's no way he can afford the to pay it. No one is willing to help him, medicare and medicaid won't do anything either. My dad is a wonderful person who needs to be around a lot longer. He's so full of life and we'd be devastated if he was taken from us too soon. Our goal is to raise money for his treatment so that he could be on the road to recovery soon. Anything that anyone can give is greatly appreciated! Thank you all in advanced, it means the world to me and my family.
