My name is Amber Parker, I am creating this campaign for my cousin, Brian and his family.
About a week ago on July 6th, Brian was rushed to the hospital after receiving a CT Scan which revealed a large mass (close to the size of a baseball) on his right lung. After several tests and a biopsy, he was diagnosed with stage 4 Thymic Carcinoma, an extremely rare form of cancer that is often misdiagnosed a simple sinus issue. The prognosis for patients with stage 4 Thymic Cancer have a continuing mortality with a 10 year survival rate of 47%. For the next several weeks, Brian will have six rounds of chemotherapy to complete, in the hopes that it will shrink the tumor enough for them to operate and remove the mass that has been pressing against the main artery going to his heart which is causing blood clots, shortness of breath, and fluid build up in his lung. Once the majority of the cancer is removed, they plan to start radiation therapy to kill the remaining cancer cells.
Our goal is to reach $20,000 to help his family pay for medical bills, and other expenses that will enable his wife to be by his side at the hospital.
Brian is only 31 years old, a committed husband to his wife Kamitia, father to their 2 children, and the spiritual rock for his family. He works tirelessly to provide for them, but that has never stopped him from finding the time or energy to help someone in need, never asking for anything in return. Now, he is in need and we are here to help. Anything you can give, be it be financial or spiritual, nothing is too small!
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
