Godspeed to you, and your wife especially, and your family. People here are behind you during this and I know I will contribute to any go fund me campaign you start with or without Jersey Girl (although I would take her up on her offer in a heartbeat if it were necessary).

I was thinking that someone local to him might start one up because there are more folks over that way and I would be happy to post it in all forums, keeping it visible. It seems to me that with long term treatment plans there are always unexpected costs that aren't apparent in the beginning.

We can't keep life normal as usual (because it is not) but maybe we can make the journey a bit easier to navigate. That's what I'm thinking.

If he needs one of us to start one, I am sure we can figure that out. Or even a paypal would work I think?

In the mean time, I'll hopefully draw attention to this thread and we'll just see how that goes.

Meal trains are the best thing ever! We've been the recipients of improvised meal trains from my work place and I've also had chances to reciprocate. Just knowing that that a meal is coming is such a relief when your attention is focused on watching closely over your loved ones.

This community has a good way of pulling together. Show us more ways where folks are working for you and how we can join them. Do you need something more? Money? Do you need household supplies or groceries sent to the house? Amazon cards?

We're right here waiting to throw in. Give us a list if you have one.

This is a difficult time for you. Focus on maintaining a positive attitude wherein you may still feel grateful for everything in your life that is good. Concentrate on raising your personal vibration leaning towards enlightenment which is opposite of depression and fear. Don't allow yourself to slide downward but look forward with hope and love. It's all going to work out.

You certainly have my well wishes for what it's worth.

I am so glad this thread was linked to the Terrestial. I did not know. My heart goes out to your wife and family. Let me know if there is something I can do for you outside of only monetary. Having lost a husband to cancer, just know that you can talk to me anytime. Much love and care!

My thoughts are with you guys, Kevin. Holy hell. Karina is a fighter. I wish I could wave a wand and spare you all this meat grinder.

That is all.

Especially in moments like these, it makes more sense that no benevolent gods exist.

Regardless, hope all goes well with her treatment, Kevin.

So one month of Chemo ended two weeks ago when they let her come home. The bone marrow biopsy revealed she is 100% cancer free. But they said she still needs to go through the whole routine or else it will come back. So, she was home for about two weeks but she couldn't leave the house and she won't be able to leave the house for 6 months. She can only leave to go back to the hospital, which we do almost every other day. So we're all wearing masks and trying to keep our distance from her while she is immune-compromised.

She started the second round of chemo today and that will last another month. Difference is now she will be going through the pain while here at the house as an outpatient and I'm juggling life as her caretaker while dealing with the kids and work. Next week she will be admitted for 3-4 days so they can monitor her while she is a getting stronger chemo drug.

The cancer is gone, and right now the biggest issue I am dealing with is the craziness coming from her Brazilian family. Her Mom was here the past month but is leaving in the Morning. She keeps trying to give her ____ she isn't supposed to take and its pissing me off. And now she has convinced my wife that the cancer is gone because of her prayer and the "miracle foods" she has been giving her. Doctor told me straight up, no herbs, no yogurt, no soft cheeses, no meats that haven't been thoroughly cooked, no restaurant foods, etc. And she has tried to give her quite literally everything he said was disallowed.

Last week they postponed her chemo to today because her liver levels were too high and they wanted her liver to recover before pounding it again with more drugs. So her sister from Brazil orders Milk Thistle, an herb, and has it delivered to my house. I'm glad I saw it before she gave it to her. I don't know what it is about her family thinking they know more than the damned doctor. She is literally at one of the best, if not the best, hospitals for Leukemia in the USA.

wow! I'm glad for you both that she is now cancer free. I hope she can stay that way!

This week I begin daily radiation treatment for prostate cancer, which I will probably have to endure for about 2 months. I'm not terribly worried, though. It's in its early stages, and prostate cancer tends to grow very slowly anyway, even if not treated, and is one of the most easily curable types of cancer. My urologist and oncologist both assure me that if one has to have cancer, prostate cancer is one of the best types to have. I am not in any pain or discomfort, and don't feel the slightest bit incapacitated, except for not being able to pee without the help of a catheter.

That’s great news, Kevin. I hope her recovery goes well and that the cancer stays away.

Gunnar, I hope your treatment goes well. My dad had an aggressive type of prostate cancer and they were able to treat it just fine.

Thanks for that, RI. It is encouraging to hear that!

Damn Gunnar sorry to hear about this I had no idea you had it too. But the prognosis for that kind of cancer is usually very good especially when caught early. Hope everything works out with your therapy.
