Emergency Procedure For Israel

My name is Jon Gonzalez and I wanted to start this GoFundMe for my good friend, Israel Garcia. His health, unfortunately, took a turn for the worst as of late and he has been diagnosed with a pancreatic mass, highly suspicious of cancer per surgeons. Because of this, he is going to need emergency Whipple surgery. Seeing how he is a full time stand-up comedian, he has no health insurance and desperately needs this surgery done ASAP. The cost of the surgical procedure without insurance is through the roof and he is going to have to pay out of pocket, which is unfortunately not an option with how expensive it is. I wanted to create this GoFundMe to try and raise the funds for him so he can have it done this week. I know the goal is a little high but I also know how many followers he and I have, that love him. If you have ever come to a live show then you have seen him and possibly even met him. He's been in numerous skits with me and he truly is like a brother to me. If you cannot afford to donate, a simple share would be just fine. However, $1, $5, $10, $20, $100, whatever you can afford would help tremendously. I just want him to get this procedure done and get back to 100%. This is a very serious matter so whatever donations or prayers you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
