Army Veteran Fighting toBeat Cancer

Dear Loved Ones:

Thank you for taking the time to read this, I appreciate that. As some of you know I am battling stage 2 esophageal cancer diagnosed December 12th, 2012. Because of an error with the Veterans Administration on some very routine paperwork, the intial part of my medical expenses were all out of pocket. I depleted over $200,000 in savings and anything else I had at my disposal, and got to a point where financially it was challenging. I don't normally like to ask for help, but I am at a point where I needed to. Any support on my behalf to help defer remaining medical bills would be greatly appreciated, beyond what my words can express.
