    Well just a few months ago I never thought I'd be in the position I'm in now. Before I go any further, let me say, I have contacted the moderators to get their approval before I posted this thread.

    After having surgery in April for stage 1 colon cancer, my wonderful wife of 40 years received a clean bill of health from all her doctors. This past November we were faced with devastating news, her colon cancer had metastasized to her liver. She was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic colon cancer of her liver, her prognosis is not very good. She immediately started chemotherapy treatment.

    The chemo infusions and the medication that goes along with it is very expensive, and we are still paying off the April surgery. I haven't worked for 4 years because of two debilitating diseases, Transverse Myelitis diagnosed in 2010 and MS in 2015. I am receiving disability insurance, but it's not very much.

    My wife has been working full time before her chemotherapy treatments started. Unfortunately she is only able to work one week a month now because the chemo treatments leave her very sick. We don't have a lot of family and close friends, and I now find myself in an unenviable position to ask for help.

    Our daughter created a "Go Fund Me" page to help with the massive unending medical bills, we have no choice unfortunately. I ask for your thoughts and prayers...and if you can donate, even a little, it is greatly appreciated.

    The moderators have graciously allowed me to post a link to my wife's Go Fund Me page. Thank You.
