Santiago Polvos Cancer Bills

Updated September 9, 2014 by Lee Ramirez

Hi, I haven't been as active as I would like to have been with Santiago's GoFundMe Page. But now I am going give this the importance that it merits.

Santiago really keeps details of his struggles to himself and it takes a lot of asking him and talking to him to really understand all that he has gone through as well as what his actual need is.
One thing for sure is he is very grateful for all donations so far.

From my numerous conversations with him, it comes out that he needs further treatments, he needs regular check ups, his doctors want him to continue with treatment for his condition and the various complications he faces as a result of having to cut short his chemotherapy and continued medical care. What he actually needs is far greater than what he let on earlier to me.

This gofundme page is for the following.

a. Medical studies and tests
b. Doctors appointments
c. Travel (He has to take a bus to his doctor which is in Guadalajara MX. some 5-6 hours away.
d. Past debts that he has to repay from his initial borrowing when he first was diagnosed with skin cancer
e. Medicines and Nutritional supplementation required to heal from initial cancer and complications he is suffereing with now, namely edema.
f. Basic living expenses that he must cover all the while trying to get to doctors appointments and further treatment as necessary.

The best thing is to have enough money to cover all these items and to make sure that the same thing doesn't happen all over again, should he need extensive and expensive treatment. To start and stop as happened before wouldn't be wise and so enough funds are essential for a complete recovery.

Santiago's artistic gift is profound and obvious but what I can say about him, is that his character and how he comports himself is many times greater than even the artistc gift and talent he posesses. My two words to describe Santiago are compassionate and generous. Now he is in need of our generosity, I expect nothing less than all funding goals met but even more importantly a testimony from Santiago reporting his full recovery.

Thank you for your time and understanding,

Lee Ramirez
