6 months after our wedding in 2015, Jason started having stomach pain. Several rounds to local doctors over a span of 5 months led to misdiagnosis and treatment for infections. When the pain worsened, weight started dropping, was unable to pass motions and blood being visible in urine, we visited a specialist who immediately advised a colonoscopy.
We got the results of the biopsy of a mass found during colonoscopy on our first wedding anniversary. The verdict: stage 3 colon cancer. It shook us to the core. He was scheduled for immediate surgery and then underwent 12 rounds of chemotherapy, which ended in Jan 2017. A blood test after this showed that he had beaten it.
Imagine our horror when a month later, he had to be admitted to the hospital due to intestine obstruction during which a Pet CT scan was done. It showed that the cancer was back in several more places. Since then it has spread very aggressively and rapidly metastasizing in his stomach and pelvic area. He is now stage 4.
But Jason is a fighter and refuses to admit defeat. In the face of terrible pain and multiple treatments he has remained strong. He had been advised chemotherapy along with targeted therapy to address the cancer. However the latter is very expensive and beyond our means. He needs 8 lakhs just for the targeted therapy for 6 months of this treatment
