When someone is sick from your family, it involves a lot of things and for sure STRESS is present. One source of stress is if you don’t have enough money to sustain the medication. It’s unfortunate truth that sometimes we reach our point in life where we don’t have enough money. In seasons like this, we often turn requests for help from our other people. Here’s one story of a child requesting for help for his father who is fighting stage 4 prostate cancer.
Mr. Fernandez is fighting for Stage 4 Prostate Cancer and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Let’s take a look and check what this condition is all about.
Stage 4 Prostate Cancer
“Prostate cancer is common cancer affecting older men. About 16 out of 100 men in the United States will get prostate cancer, but only 3 will die because of it. That means about 97 out of 100 men will die of something other than prostate cancer.” More details HERE
“Stage-4 Prostate Cancer (IV) This is the last stage of prostate cancer and describes a tumor that has spread to other parts of the body, including the lymph nodes, lungs, liver, bones, or bladder. For these cancers, the 5-year survival rate is 29%.” Source HERE
One of the treatments for Prostate Cancer is Hormone Therapy.
“Doctors can prescribe drugs that either reduce the amount of hormones produced by the testicles or block the hormones from functioning properly. Another option involves the surgical removal of the testicles, a procedure called orchiectomy.” Source HERE
