Angels for Tony Goitia

36979964_1549851022551368_r.jpegOur cousin, Tony Goitia, pictured here with the Duke University Polio vaccine trial team, is a true survivor.  A decade ago, he was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer.  It is the same form of cancer that felled Sen. John McCain, Sen. Ted Kennedy, and Vice President Joe Biden's son, Beau.  No one, famous or not, survives long with this cancer.  Tony fought it successfully for a decade in a remarkable story you would not believe.  His courage is exceeded only by his love of family and friends, including some among the latter whom he spared no effort to help battle this disease, too.

Despite fighting the struggle of his life, Tony has never wavered to organize a family reunion and he savors every minute of them!
Unfortunately, last weekend we received the much dreaded news that the tumor, dormant for years, is now active and threatening again.
So Tony is geared up for battle and so are we!  We are requesting donations to the Miami Brain Tumor Coalition,  which he started. 
Much of the proceeds are used to support the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University, where Tony has been treated since getting the prognosis of three to six moths to live back in 2009, and where he will be treated again.

Now it's Tony who needs our financial hand to continue the fight for his survival.  It will be a grueling journey, physically and emotionally, but he is a fighter who does not shrivel in the face of adversity--he fights, and we are there with him!

If you are willing and able to join Tony's fight against his malignant Glioblastoma, please support him through a donation to the Miami Brain Tumor Coalition.  With deepest gratitude and blessings from Tony  and our entire family.
