Brandon's battle to beat melanoma
Organized by: Brandon Higbee
November 09, 2016
So, two months ago, I found a single mole on my back that grew too quickly and I decided to get it looked at. Of course, the doctors wanted a biopsy of it and sure enough, it was a positive melanoma. Then the doctors wanted to check me out, inside and out. They settled on checking my lymph nodes in my left arm pit. You guessed it, another surgery-Positive again. There is another surgery scheduled soon. I am doing lots of research and have come across some naturopathic methods of supplement. I am going to combine both the surgery and supplementation to fight the possibility of it being internal. Of course, all of this is very expensive. The surgery costs are covered by my insurance but not the supplements or the time off work. I am only 42, a family man with two young children. I have found that hard work alone is not enough. As a veteran, I know what it means to not give up, perseverance is going to be key but there is still this financial hurdle to overtake. Any help you can give is greatly appreciated and very much needed.
Mahalo nui loa.
