Gil's Fight Against Cancer

For those who were not aware, I went off the face of the earth when I went to the doctors office back in June for what I thought was a simple procedure to open up my esophagus  and was diagnosed with Esophagus Cancer.   Needless to say it was a shock to myself and my family to learn I had developed cancer and immediately searched for treatment to restore my body.  We began our journey with an alternative medicine clinic to treat the diagnosis.  Thing were very hard and my body took a big hit.  I lost over 100 lbs, was hospitalized and everything was just very difficult.  

Since then I have come out of the dark place mentally and physically and I am doing much better.  My parents have put in a huge amount of funding to pay for all the treatments that I need through the alternative medicine treatments and the fight still isn't over.   

A lot of people have asked to help in many different ways.  Right now my family could really use some financial relief.  Every day of treatment can reach up to over a thousand dollars out of pocket.  Soon the visits and treatments won't need to be everyday but there will still be follow-ups and tests to monitor my healing process.  

If you would like to donate funding to the cause of me beating cancer, any help would be greatly appreciated.
