"This is my pops, 1 year ago he was diagnosed with colon caner. As many of may already know in this country if you have no medical insurance you might as well be dead OR you can give up an arm and leg to receive any sort of treatment for your illness. Having no other option my father returned to his home country of Colombia to receive treatment for his cancer. Since then he has been through 3 surgeries, 1 heart attack as well as months of chemo therapy. For a while after the Chemo things seemed to be getting better. My father regained color, energy, weight and he was even able to enjoy partaking in some of the actives he enjoyed doing. This picture was taken at a moment when things were hopeful and recovery seemed likely and only right around the corner. Unfortunately after many failed attempts to save my fathers life and restore his health to normal it's come to a point where the cancer has become terminal. There is nothing more the doctors can do and at this very moment my father is in extreme pain and is fighting for his life. The worst Part is that he is in another country. This could very well be the only chance that my brothers and I have to see him alive before he passes away. I am turning to this as last resort to try and save up money for my brothers and my self to see him. Traveling to this part to this continent is very expensive in such short notice so If you are capable or willing to help, please do.. any little bit will do. If you cannot help financially please like or share this and maybe someone will be able to.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.""
