I was diagnosed with a very advanced, aggressive, Stage IV prostate cancer with metastasis to his lungs in late 2013. The tumor was outside the gland (also known as extracapsular) and involved with my seminal vesicles. My PSA ( a marker used in evaluating potential prostate cancer or the disease itself) was tested with a result of 4.91 ng/ml. I then underwent both hormone deprivation therapy as well as chemotherapy with the toxic agent, docetaxel in 2014. The therapies were effective at reducing the metastases, the size of tumor.
But the PSA once again rises and the painful neuropathy from the extremely toxic chemo has left me largely disabled. I live on a small SSDI income and an occasional food demo at a local grocery store. The struggle to pay rent, insurance, buy food, keep my broken down 26 year old car running is usually one I lose every month.
I need some help. I have meds I can't buy and medical bills I can't pay. Anything helps.
