Single Dad fighting Cancer Again.


27384546_1525903[phone redacted]_funddescriptionThis is my last resort. I honestly didn't want to make this page but a friend convinced me. My Name is Gilbert Alvarado Jr., I'm a single parent raising my 13 yr old son. I recently had surgery to remove tumors from my bladder (5th surgery in 8 yrs.). I had avoided goin to the dr for years because i have to work to keep money coming in noone else is goin to. See after each surgery I have to deal with this painful chemo that forces my entire body to spasm when i use the restroom. It usually last 2-21/2 months. I can't work with these painful spasms. The spasms can last anywhere from 10-20 mins each time i use the restroom for 2-21/2 months.
I lost my job I had for 4 yrs because of Hurricane Harvey, I was denied help from every agency during the hurricane aftermath. I was able to pay my bills, rent and buy food without government assistance with the job i had. I've had a few jobs since then but having transportation was difficult to get. I'm already behind on bills an have no way of paying em. I don't want to lose the place me an my son call home. We lost our last place in Hurricane Ike. This is my last resort but like they say.... A closed mouth don't get fed. So I'm askin for help. Thanks!
UPDATE: Just had another surgery (5.8.18 @MD ANDERSON) to remove tumors from bladder again which makes this surgery #6. So now me an my son have to figure away to keep our housing, pay bills an food all over again. For those who have helped we are for ever grateful for your kindness an compassion! Again Thank You all.
