Big G's Fund for Cancer treatment

Over the last few months my father, Gordon “Big G” Ames, found out that he has
Salivary Gland Carcinoma. This is a form of cancer that has developed right behind his ear and has metastasized down to his chest. He has undergone a biopsy surgery and we are waiting to hear the prognosis from his core samples. At the beginning of January, Big G and his wife, Monica are heading to MD Anderson in Houston to begin his treatment.

Though it is unclear what his chemo and radiation plan will be, his
doctors have told him that he needs to stay in Houston while receiving chemo. Due to a switch in insurance we are still uncertain what his treatment regimen will be.

This is a fund for my father’s treatment to help mitigate bills while he is out of work. Monica will have to take off of work as well drive down to Houston from Kerrville, TX to be there for him. This will fund medical bills, room and board, transportation and quality of life.

Please share this with friends and fans of my dad’s radio show “Big G’s Texas Roadshow.” To all of the musicians that my dad interviewed: it would mean a lot if you could share this with your fans. He means the world to his sons, wife and family.
