Help Sem fight lymphoma

Hello my name is Tongjit Stiebling (Dear). I currrently living in Louisville, Kentucky with my husband Alex and two beautiful children.  I'm Sakasem's daughter.......and   I am creating this campaign to help  raise funds for my father who is going through some unexpected health issues.  Here is a little story my husband wrote about my father who also inspired him in many ways. Sakasem began training and fighting at the age 13. After a extensive career as a fighter he became a trainer for the world renowned Fairtex Gym. Moving to the U.S. in the early 90's he has been criss crossing the country teaching his art. He is one of the founding father's of American Muy Thai. This installation of Muy Thai gave momentum to the MMA movement.
       Sakasem has recently traveled back to Thailand to address health concerns. He has been diagnosed with stage IV Marginal Splenic  B-cell lymphoma and Aortic Abdominal Aneurysm (Also known as AAA). Having been abroad for 25 years he does not have the social support system and financial means to recieve treatment in Thailand.  We are now able to get him insurance and the treatments he needs to fight!  The contribution will be spend toward his daily needs and medical expenses not cover by insurance.  He will not be able to work and support his family while going through chemotherapy and Endovascular Procedures.  It will be a long recovery for him but we will all stand in his corner and cheer him on during this hard time.   
       Sakasem has changed the lives of many of students, including myself. He taught me to "Live Give". Help us save his life so he can continue this message. I want to thank you everyone so much for all of your support.  Your positive thoughts and energy matters.  Thank you.
