Help Louis Beat Cancer
Louis Jackson is a giver. Yogi, poet, anatomy guru, and friend -- he is humble and generous to a fault. Now, though, Louis needs to turn the tables and allow himself to receive.
Early this year, Louis was diagnosed with Stage 2 prostate cancer. He has determined that prostate removal is the best treatment option. Louis and his partner, Cheryl, are both full-time yoga teachers, and unfortunately the health insurance they have does not cover the doctor who can best perform this surgery, which will require travel and at least one out-of-town stay. Post-surgery, Louis will have to return for follow-ups to monitor his recovery and, depending on the outcomes, may need further treatment.
In addition to medical and travel costs, the couple will lose a lot of income, as yoga teachers only get paid when they are working! Louis will be out of commission for at best a couple of weeks; Cheryl also may need to forego teaching to accompany him on some of these trips.
Please consider donating to this GoFundMe page to help offset Louis's expenses and to help him beat this lousy disease. Any amount is so much appreciated. And please leave a note or a picture in the comments to send some positive vibes and help lift Louis's spirits.
