Hello everyone and thank you for visiting Gabriel's gofundme page. A few months ago, Gabriel was experiencing ongoing pains in his abdomen. The pain was caused by a large (15 cm, almost the size of his liver) tumor. Upon biopsy, the tumor was determined to be leiomyosarcoma, which is a very rare soft tissue sarcoma. Surgery is not recommended at this point because the tumor is too large and is too closely attached to inferior vena cava and other major blood vessels. Gabriel has to undergo at least 3 rounds of chemotherapy before doctors even consider surgery, then they plan to follow with radiation. Gabriel already completed two rounds of chemotherapy and he is staying very strong, unfortunately because Gabe is unable to work, he has been experiencing financial pressures. Please, people let's at least ease that aspect of his recovery. No contribution is small, $1-5 dollars will be very appreciated.
I thank you all, and if you are unable to donate, I ask you to keep Gabriel Santiago in your thoughts and prayers. He is a wonderful man and a very loving father.

Gabe's chemotherapy cocktail consists of: Doxorubicin, Ifosfamide and Mesna.
