Meds for Michael Daniel - Lion King

I’d like to introduce you to Michael Thomas Daniel, AKA – ‘Lion King’ in the hiking world.  He is a film screenwriter, producer, director, artist, avid hiker and loving human to his dog Dixie and new kitten Rufus. In July 2019, Michael was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon cancer with advanced metastasis to his liver and lungs.  When he first received the diagnosis, he started documenting his journey on his YouTube channel, His prognosis was grim.  He started traditional cancer therapies which had some effect, but the horrific side effects destroyed his quality of life.  In January 2020, he decided to wean himself from the chemo meds and increase his alternative medication regimen of CBD products.  As his video diary shows, he started seeing positive results from this change in treatment.  Through a lot of hard work and diligence, Michael improved his health and his tumors started shrinking.  Unfortunately, Michael’s focus on healing was interrupted this summer when his cabin was robbed and his medications were stolen.  Between that, and fighting with the movie distribution company that was still withholding payment for his film Get Gone, Michael was no longer able to afford the, on average, $150/week cost of his CBD medications and had to cut back significantly.  This has had a detrimental effect on his path to healing.  In July when he had to reduce his CBD regimen, his cancer antigen bloodwork was at 100.  As of November 1st, it has shot up to 1300.    We are all going through extremely trying times this year, but if you can spare anything, please contribute to this fund to help get Michael back on the full doses that he needs to keep this cancer at bay. P.S.  Please feel free to share the campaign link on your own timeline to help spread the word to as many folks as possible.  Many thanks.
