Hello world! I'm starting this site to raise money for the adventure, I tried to experience the past five years.
Just over five years ago, I was 20 years old normal, healthy school children. It was not until May of 2011, I received the bad news that I had cancer of the nasopharynx. Since the initial diagnosis I was continuously receiving chemotherapy, while the return to school and play football. During this time there have always been horror of different cancer sites popping up and I changed either chemotherapy or received the same chemotherapy often. I would also receive radiation therapy, the cancer would ever get out of control.
This brings us to May 2016. I had a CT abdomen that seemed to show greater activity of cancer in the lymph nodes. I elected to stop the chemotherapy that I go and take a break month. After the break, my oncologist was able to find an experimental drug that was designed to strengthen my immune system to fight my cancer.
Finally, in mid-August this year, I had trouble breathing. CT scan showed extensive pnuemonia with the cancerous lesions in the lungs and liver. Now I before choosing either continue with another very difficult chemotherapy that would undoubtedly feel sick and could not work much at all; Or I could skip chemotherapy and trying to live the rest of this life, I still have to live.
The money that I was trying to raise will go on my bucket list experience. At the moment I am thinking of a trip to Yosemite National Park in California, skydyving, a trip to Wyoming to meet his priest from my childhood, and it is even possible to get my passport stamped to visit another country.
