Helping In My Battle With Cancer

I heard the words no one wants to hear, "You have cancer and the prognosis is not good". The bad news is I have stomach cancer and a prognosis of 1 to 2 years. The good news is I will take part in a clinical trial in one of the best cancer institute's in the country and they feel confident the cancer can be reduced but no promise of a cure.
I am creating this fundraising site because I am hoping to raise money to cover any medical bills but also cover my daughter's college tuition and help my wife deal with finances should things not go well. I don't know if anyone will donate to this but I figure it can't hurt.
I will promise that should I beat this cancer any money donated here will not go to me but to cancer research. Should the worst happen it would go to my wife and daughter.
Even more important than making a donation is make sure to see a doctor and get tested. Stomach cancer is one of the fastest growing cancers in the US and what makes it tough is people don't recognize the first signs so by the time it's detected a person is already in Stage 3 or Stage 4 (meaning it has spread). If you have frequent heartburn, get an endoscopy or CTScan and see if it is something more. Thank you for reading this and a big thank you if you decide to donate.
