Jaime/Giacomo has been dealt the most challenging hand and it was an instant shock to all. Any support is greatly appreciated.

While living in Thailand teaching English abroad, and stealing some recipes as a chef always does, he was having slight headaches for a couple weeks. Still, exercising and working regularly he felt that he should look into it as Jaime has never really had any serious illness and does not even take any medicine or a pill when feeling ill. Dr. said it was just migraines after a few tests. However, Jaime insisted on an MRI. It revealed 2 tumors, on very large and one small. He had an operation to extract the one less than two days later which was sent to a lab for testing. The other was too deep and dangerous to get to. 5 days later the results were back. It was not a tumor that originates in the brain.Instead it had metastasized from the lung and it was in fact malignant.

 Adenocarcinoma cancer that usually come from the lungs. And, another test soon revealed it to be true, one spot in the right lung and another in an inoperable area of the lymph node. Soon after it was back home for radiation, and doctors are recommending the only thing they know, chemotherapy, while having no insurance in the USA. Something that will cost far more that both surgery and hospital time in Thailand. Any help at this time would be appreciated. While money is valued in our world. Words and prayers are worth far more. Thank you.
