Help Buddha Fight Cancer

this is my brother, Shanen aka Buddha. he's also my fishing buddy. we love when the silver bass swim upstream from lake erie to lake st claire in the springtime and how it brings us in closer alignment w/the seasons as well as w/one another.

Buddha was recently diagnosed w/stage 4 cancer. that's an advanced stage of cancer where it's spread to other places. the cancer could've been caught sooner if healthcare had been more affordable.

when Buddha was taken to the emergency, we also found out he has an irregular heartbeat, type 2 diabetes and anemia.

in the coming weeks, he is going to undergo intense radiation and chemotherapy. the #grief from dealing w/all of this information has really devastated our fam. we are expecting a tough fight ahead physically, emotionally, spiritually and of course, financially.

with your thoughtful gift, we will be able to provide Shanen w/the best possible care available and keep his medical bills in check.

please feel free to share this post along w/the hashtags #HelpBuddhaFightCancer and #EFFUCANCER!!!

please feel free to include a photo of you flipping the bird to cancer as well.

thank you for your support!
