The family of Ivor Yhap are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against stage four colon cancer. Please show your support! Thanks

This is the Ivor Yhap Medical Expense Fund. The funds will be used for Ivor’s medical, prescription costs and related expenses not covered by insurance. Thank you all for taking the first step by visiting Ivor Yhap’s Medical Fundraiser Site. My name is Deyira Yhap and I am Ivor’s daughter. Ivor is the father of four children 2 boys and 2 girls and has six grandchildren who love him very much. He has always been a hard worker and a great provider for his family and others in need. In June 2012, my dad began to complain about abdomen pain. I immediately made him an appointment with his primary physician. During this time he was seen and was diagnosed with parasitic cyst in his liver and kidneys. He was prescribed a prescription for an expensive medication to rid his body of the parasitic cyst only to find out a month later that the lesions/ masses in his liver had increased in size. He was then referred to an infectious disease doctor that told him the exact same thing as the other doctors; that it was not cancer and that they would have to biopsy the masses. On Wednesday, September 26, 2012, upon meeting with the infectious disease doctor, we were instructed to go directly to the hospital where my dad had to stay until Friday, October 26, 2012. There were many test ran during this time, only to have them all come back negative for cancer. Monday, October 08, 2012, my dad had seen a cancer specialist which stated to our family that he knew it was cancer just by looking at my dad. We had been going back and forth to doctors, specialist and even the infectious disease doctor for months and the one thing they all said was that it was not cancer, but it really was Cancer. The cancer has now spread to his liver, kidney and colon. All of the prior biopsies came back negative. Also, it has been a real shock and surprise to us all. While in the hospital Ivor lost about 20 pounds in less than 3 weeks; with a combination of medicines and even post- surgery complications. His legs, thighs, ankles and feet had tripled from there normal size, making it difficult for him to get around. He now needs help to do all of the daily activities he had been accustomed to by himself. On Saturday, October 27, 2012, he was released from the hospital to a rehab facility, so that he could regain his strength to walk and get around on his own. He was also placed on a nutritional regiment to get his body ready for chemotherapy. It has truly been a long journey and we know that it is far from over, but he has never opened his mouth not even once to complain or question God why me. He continues to show strength for his family and loved ones. On Friday, November 16, 2012, the family rented a van and drove him to Tampa, Florida to the Moffitt Cancer Center. The doctor there stated that he should have been on chemotherapy awhile back, however his first treatment will be on Monday, November 26th. In addition to having chemo appointments several times a week, Ivor’s current prescriptions are not covered by his insurance, which is all out of pocket expenses. I decided to start this fundraiser to help with medical bills, travel expenses, living cost, and etc. Ivor still has a long road ahead of him so I am asking for your donations. He has been through so much, in such a short period of time, but all of us can help by giving a little of ourselves. Please give, $1.00, $5.00, $10.00, $100.00, or other amount. Words alone cannot express how much we thank each and every one of you for your kind words, prayers and financial donations for Ivor’s cause. It means a lot to Ivor and his family to see and feel the love from others in such a time as this. We sincerely thank you and ask that the blessings of God continue to prosper in your lives. Please continue to pray with us for a MIRACLE! ~This Fund raiser will end on Ivor's 75th Birthday! 01/13/2013~
