Sam's Road to Recovery

Sam Acosta is a young man who will soon be a great father to his first born daughter who is expected September of this year. Sam recently got married to Abbey Prall and shortley after saying I do they found out they were going to have a child of their own and would be starting a family. With joy and happiness consuming their lives and with a princess on the way, it all seemed to good to be true.

I am creating this Go Fund me account for my very dear friends because on May 10, 2017 Sam and Abbey received devastating news. That very early morning when Sam had awoken, he was experiencing excrutiating pain in his back and side. They believed he may have been having pain due to kidney stones, so they made a trip to the ER. When the results of a CT Scan were discussed the two  were informed it was something much worse. Sam was diagnosed with Stage 2 Cancer and he had a mass on his right testical that was pushing up against his kidney causing the pain. He also has a few other masses that are located in his groin area that are tangled within his lymp nodes. 

With this devastating news Sam had to have surgery to remove the mass that was causing the pain. Sam had his right testical and cord removed. The cancer was confined in just the testical and when the pathology report came back it was confirmed that it was Teratoma. He still has two other masses that need to be removed as soon as possible and this will put Sam out of work until the Doctor's can be sure that all the cancer has been removed and he is recovered too return back to work. The Doctor's are planning on surgically removing the masses and they have a 75% chance of curing the cancer by surgery. If the cancer has spread he will have to undergo radiation and chemotherapy. 

Sam is a very hard worker and before all of this happened he was working in the contruction field. With a long road of recovery he will not be able to perform any strenuous work and this puts Sam and his wife in a bind with their new princess on the way. Sam is a very positive person and with all of this going on he is still in good spirits, and staying postive for his wife and baby girl. We are asking please any kind of help would be a blessing. Whether it be a small donation, baby girl clothing, diapers, baby supplys or even just reaching out to include these two within your prayers as well as just sharing this post. Sam has quite a battle ahead of him and we are asking to please keep this family within your prayers and surround them with love and positive vibes. Thank you for taking the time to read this and let these words into your heart. We will be in touch with more updates after Sam attends his next Doctor's visit. God bless you all.
