Alex's Colon Cancer fund

I was recently diagnosed with colon cancer and I need to have an urgent and expensive surgery.  This fundraiser is to help me pay my fixed expenses while I am out of work, as well as the medical expenses associated with the surgery and its aftercare. My Mom is making the trip out from Cartagena, Colombia to help look after me in recovery and take care of my gorgeous two year old daughter, Abigail. Proceeds from this fund will also help my Mom with her airfare and accommodations.
        Surgery and treatment for colon cancer are not things I am looking forward to but obstacles I will face head-on so that I might be Abigail’s Papa and my Mother’s son for many years to come. During this trying time, I am focusing on my health and my family. Donations to this fund will help make my finances less concerning. Any and all donations are most appreciated.
