Hello Everyone! My name is Christie Luciano. Joe is my father. Long story short list, my dad has had a rough life health wise. He was diagnosed with non hoptchkins lymphoma at the young age of 37. With serious rounds of chemotherapy they were able to put it in remission. About ten years later he was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver and had to have a liver transplant on Thanksgiving of 2010. thank God he pulled through and was able to make a dull recovery. Only 5 years after the liver transplant have was once again diagnosed with the lymphoma which has now come back in an aggressive form. Doctors have tried numerous amounts of treatments with out any.improvement. The cancer is spreading like wild fire including to his skull( which is right next to his brain ) as well as his lungs and abdomen. we are doing everything to get him better but nothing in life is free and it comes with extreme out of pocket costs even when including insurance . Doctors are wanting to try to do a new treatment that will hopefully yield some positive results this time . I'm making this sight to ask for you're helprobably. We are literally broke right now . I've spent all my savings and more trying to make it. his medications alone are like a whole other mortgage and month. I have applied for assistance with no help and we have pretty much exhausted our resources. I'm asking to please get the word out to help this man that I am so lucky to call my father m the bills keep piling up and we keep getting furtheready behind . Will his medical expenses alone we are broke not to mention living expenses , gas to get to and from these appointments and hospital stays, we can't even hardly keep groceries in the fridge. idk who this will reach and belive me I'm at my wits end. Trust that I'm trying everything I can to help this man that has done nothing but taken care of everyone else his whole life. With everything going on the last thing he needs is to worry about money . So if you could please find it in the bottom.of your help to donate to this cause or to help get the word out to people that can help it would be so greatly appreciated. Please help me get the word out if you aren't able to donate . thank you! love, A concerned daughter :(
