My uncle, Gary, found a lump on his head on Tuesday, September 26th, 2017. He went to the clinic and initially found out it was a Lypoma, fatty mass of cells. After many tests, we later found out that the mass was, in fact, a tumor. The tumor measured 3 inches by 1.25 inches.
On October 4th, we found out that this tumor was a Plasma Sarcoma, a form of blood cancer. Our body has white blood cells that 'turn on' when they find infection in the body, and 'turn off' when the infection is gone. Unfortunately, Gary's didn't 'turn off' like the were supposed to, and they have since grown into a large mass of cells. He will go through an intense round of radiation to attempt to beat the beast we are currently fighting.
As you can expect, the medical bills have already gone through the roof. He currently is not able to work, and he does still have daily living expenses including rent, groceries, insulin for diabetes, and other bills to pay.
Prayers are appreciated, and any donations are greatly appreciated to help him out in this difficult times.
