ODESSA, Texas (BIG 2/ FOX 24)- They were results that no person can prepare for. “I’ve never been, I’ve never been bad, I’ve never been in trouble I’ve been good all the time since I was a little boy,” says Elias Daniel Lujan.
“They put a camera through my nose and they found out it was like a pimple inside my nostril so the Doctor wanted to see what was really wrong and he cut my tonsils and thats when I lost my voice because the tumor was too big.”
Doctors were able to remove 95% of the tumor with a plan to get the rest with Chemo and Radiation. “When they got the thing out they said it was the size of a baseball the thing they got out it was located on the carotid artery,” says Lujan.
He says his family decided to organizing a garage sale to help cover the cost. “A fundraise you know for my Cancer, I have stopped working since May the 12th so we are doing this to get the money to pay my bills.”
Lujan overwhelmed with emotion as he speaks about the support of his community and his family.
“Stopping by, buying stuff, people donating clothes, shoes, you name it I’ve been blessed with a lot of people they’ve been helping me a lot. My house, that’s a lot of love you know I love my family, I love my wife, she’s the love of mine you know.”
