My name is Michael Joy and I am a proud father of four amazing girls (Riley, Alyssa, Danielle & Emma) and also battling Stage 4 Colon Cancer with metastatic lesions on my Liver for almost a year now through standardized medical treatments (without any success).  Chemotherapy has been ineffective and the side effects were destroying my body and became unbearable. My last scan showed that the tumors continue to grow and worsen.

Through extensive research with my wife Julie and guidance from my Doctor, the next best step is non-traditional treatment at an institute outside of the US that has amazing success with their protocol. Unfortunately, our insurance will not cover these treatments and the cost is over $43,000. Which is nothing compared to the Chemotherapy at $40,000 each treatment!

I want to be one of those success stories and at only 52 years old, I believe that I can be with your help and support. I am a fighter and have been doing my best to stay the course of keeping my body, mind & spirit in the best possible shape. With each success story year after year,  hopefully the "powers that be" in the US will take notice and start approving these treatments here to allow others to get this amazing care that is needed.

I am scheduled to arrive in a few weeks on September 5, 2017 and all costs are to be handled prior to that date.

If you are interested in knowing more about how your generosity is being utilized? Please feel free to reach out to me for greater details.

Please share my story with others and let's fight cancer together.

Thank you for your consideration and participation!

God Bless
