Recently, we got the news that my younger brother Matthew(30) has been diagnosed with "Cholangiocarcinoma". (Liver Cancer).
It is still very surreal that this can happen to someone so full of life and healthy, and means the world to us! We are staying strong for him and have a solid group of prayer warriors cheering him on and supporting him in any way we can.
He is not able to get a transplant at this point until he has chemotherapy. If he were to have a transplant, the anti-rejection drugs he would need to take would kill his immune system. If the cancer returned, his body would not be able to fight it off. A transplant will be needed after chemotherapy so there is a long road ahead of him.
We are pulling together to relieve the financial burden from him so that he can focus on keeping himself strong and positive. We appreciate anything big or small to help our family get through this, and we are forever grateful. God Bless!
