Fundraising Campaign for Gabriel Silva
 

Stuff happens, as they say. It’s how you deal with it that speaks volumes.

Unfortunately, I have to share bad news with you today. One of the Last Dream Club members Gabriel Silva was diagnosed with cancer, acute Lymphoblastic lymphoma to be more accurate. Lymphoblastic lymphoma is very rare in adults and usually occurs in people under the age of 35. It is very similar to acute lymphoblastic leukemia. In lymphoma, the abnormal lymphocytes are generally in the lymph nodes or thymus gland, but in acute lymphoblastic leukemia they are mainly in the blood and bone marrow. Gabriel and his family are going through some very rough time right now, but I believe that with a little help from his friends he will get through this with flying colors.

The word cancer elicits emotion from most people. Most people know someone who has been touched by cancer in some way. Writing an encouraging message to someone affected by cancer is sometimes difficult.  I’m having hard time finding the right words due to the seriousness of the situation. With that in mind, I have no doubt that Gabriel will fight cancer with the same ferocious determination that he have with other challenges in his life. I know that the great strength he has will prevail.

With that said, I hope that you will find it in your heart to help Gabriel and his family in his time of need. Gabriel is self-employed and while he is going through chemotherapy will not be able to work as much as he would like. Therapy will take about 8 month to complete, during which time Gabe will need more than just your prayers. You'll have our eternal gratitude if you can find it in your heart to assist Gabriel and his family.

It looks like once again I have to be the bearer of bad news. Gabriel’s PET (positron emission tomography) scan came back positive. The masses and fluid in his lungs came back. I want to thank everyone who helped to support Gabriel Siva’s GoFundMe complain in the past. But, we are done yet.

About 6 months ago he was diagnosed with acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. He completed his 8th chemo therapy about a month ago. But, it looks like remission didn’t last very long. Few days ago Gabe experienced a shortness of breath and when back to the hospital for tests. The results are not what we were looking for, cancer came back.

This time around Gabe will need a more aggressive treatment. He will be going to Tampa for perhaps 3 months, possibly even longer. The plan is calling for two aggressive chemo therapies with more advanced drugs every two weeks and once cancer goes in to remission he will be doing a BMT. A bone marrow transplant is a treatment that replaces unhealthy marrow with a healthy one. It’s also called a blood or marrow transplant. Bone marrow is a soft, sponge-like tissue in the center of most bones. It produces white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. But, before transplant, he will get chemo chemotherapy with or without radiation to destroy the diseased blood-forming cells and marrow. Then, healthy cells are given to Gabe, the procedure is not surgery. The new cells go into his bloodstream through an intravenous (IV) line. It’s just like getting blood or medicine through an IV. The cells find their way into marrow, where they grow and start to make healthy red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

People, he will need lots of good energy and good vibes. We all hope that he will overcome this scary disease very soon. Gabriel will have to stay in Tampa for a prolong period of time. He and his family will have to travel back and forth and that take money, a lot of money. Keep in mind, all of this time he hasn’t been work. Therefore, if you can find in your heart to help him and his family in this time of need will be greatly appreciated. Please, believe me anything you can do will help. I will resurrect the GoFundMe page and will schedule a fundraising campaign at the Last Dream Park.

Thanks again and god bless.
