What A Cold Sore Did To This Man Will Give You Goosebumps

Peter Lisle of Gin Gin, Queensland, never thought that his cold sore can turn out to be a deadly cancer. He diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma on his lower lip at the Gladstone Hospital, Australia, in July 2013. It was a dangerous skin cancer because of which he had undergone a major surgery. His entire jaw was removed and rebuilt using bones from his leg and skin from his forehead.

Even after this surgery, his tumour was not removed properly and he underwent four more surgeries to remove this tumor completely. Unable to work and being in a hospital hours away from his wife and children with repetitive surgeries and treatments, Mr Lisle is in debt of  $30,000. He and his family are working hard to overcome ths difficult situation and they have started fundraising for the costs of his reconstructive surgery, medications, and lost expenses from being out of work.

In early 2015 he found a lump on his mouth and he was reassured the lump was not cancerous and he was put on medication. But by April doctors confirmed his cancer is back and growing. Now this cancer was spreading from his lip to his jaw.

On knowing this, he said 'I went to the doctors to make sure it was not what I thought it was. But it was. The cancer had come back again. '

He can now eat and speak normally. Although he had six weeks of radiation treatment to eat and talk again with his new mouth. It was difficult for him to go back to normal eating habits and pronounce words properly, but with time he was able to do so and met his family.

With $30,000 in debt, the family now fear they will lose their home and car.
