Just over two weeks ago, Uncle Gary was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. He has been having issues with severe acid reflux, indigestion, and an upset stomach for about the last year and a half. Everytime he went to the hospital for it, they would send him home and tell him to take nexium without running any tests. Thankfully this last time he went in, they were about to send him home again when a gastroenterologist looked at his chart and told them he wanted him admitted for some tests. He went in with a scope, found the tumor and biopsied it. The test showed that it was malignant. We went to file the paperwork for help through the VA, but they said they weren't sure how long it will take for them to get him in. And if you have watched the news lately about the Veteran's Administration, you know what's going on with it, and Gary doesn't have the time to wait. Also, his medicare does not kick in until next year. I am filling out the paper work for financial assistance for his hospital bills, but the oncologist wants so much money up front each visit. Gary is dealing with enough right now without having to worry about all of the expenses that go along with it. And he is just such a good, kindhearted person. He will not want to feel like he is burdening someone financially through all of this. But I want him to be able to focus on his health and getting better, not how he is going to pay for everything. So that is why I am asking anyone, if you are able to help any, even just $5, anything at all you can do, please help us. I know so many families are going through similar situations right now and I can emphathize with them. People should not have to worry about not getting treatment that without it, they will lose their life. Facing cancer and the unknown is hard enough, but to know you won't be able to fight it without having the money is a horrible feeling. Thank you for any help you can give. I love my uncle very much and want him to have a fighting chance to survive. And also, if you could just pray for him and send good thoughts his way, we would really appreciate it. Thank you.
