On May 7, 2012 we were told that 23 yr old Trey’s cancer (Epithelioide Sarcoma) was back for the FIFTH time and that it had metastasized to his lungs. We have decided after a couple unsuccessful rounds of chemo here in the DFW area, to seek treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston as it is the only cancer center in the world that has a sarcoma team. This is very costly to us as we have to drive 4 ½ hours to Houston and pay for gas, parking, lodging, food and all other expenses that come with traveling back and forth. Not to mention the never ending medical expenses and the cost of everyday living. He has been unable to work since this nightmare started for the 5th time on April 29, 2013 when Trey went in for his routine CT scans and labs and in the CT scans the DR's seen suspicious spots in his lungs and a biopsy on May 2, 2012 confirm our worst fears, that it was back. He immediately was hospitalized and chemotherapy was started. During all this his sweet wife was injured at work and has not been able to work due to a workmans comp injury and has just had to undergo surgery. So they have both been out of work and things have been incredibly difficult to say the least.
Trey was first diagnosed with cancer in 2006 when he was 16. In 2007 his cancer recurred and he had surgery and radiation. His cancer returned again in the spring of 2012 for the 4th time and up until that point he had 3 surgeries and radiation, this time they did one more very invasive surgery and chemo. This 5th time, he is going through intense chemotherapy and with switching to MD Anderson for all further treatments we are very hopeful that this time he will kick cancers butt for good! He and his wife Ashley have been married since 2011 and have spent a good amount of their young marriage battling this cancer. They have endured so much remain each others strength through all the hurdles. Everyone who meets this incredible young man, known to his close friends and family by the nickname of “Superman,” instantly falls in love with him. He is a mentor and an inspiration to everyone he meets. To know him is to love him.
Thank you for taking the time to read Trey’s story and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the love, prayers, thoughts, positive energy, and compassion you all so us.
Blessings from all of us!
