This GoFundMe Is to help my brother Matt fight his Stage 4 Colon Cancer and save our family.
It started with the Flu. He got sick and was unable to hold anything down. Getting weaker and weaker they went to the doctors who gave his some medicine and sent him home again, but it didnt work. Things continued to get worse so after returning to the doctors they did a scan and revealed the problem. Further tests and inspections confirmed the worst. Matt has Stage 4 colon cancer. He has a single large mass blocking his colon and it's all over his stomach.
Doctors have given him 3 years to live.
Call To Action.
This is an urgent call to arms. We need your help now to help support Matt, his Wife and 4 year old Daughter so they can dedicate 110% of their time and energy on helping Matt.
Matt was the main worker in the family working on the railroads. He has medical insurance so they are covered in that regard but with him now unable to work they have no income at this time. Your donations will go towards making sure they keep a roof over their head. Food on the table and cloths on their daughter. More so it will make sure what ever Matt needs, where ever he needs to go and what ever he needs to happen they can do it right away.
While Matt is in a grave situation there's still hope yet we can fight this. He's only 33 years old so has youth on his side. Further tests have shown all his other organs are 100% healthy and functioning. The cancer is contained strictly to his colon and stomach.
Having had opperations to install tubes for the chemo Matt has just left Hospital (31st Jan) and Is back in his own bed. Going forwards he going to the University of Alabama for continued treatment. In addition he has been accepted from what I'm told is the most skilled and leading cancer specilists Dr. Martin Heslin , Chief of the Medical Staff at U.A.B Health System & Executive Vice Chair of the department of Surgery.
Your donations will directly impact my brothers life so please anything you can part with really will make a difference no matter how large or small. I have set a goal of £10,000 ($14,194) because I believe Its a target we can reach. But It doesnt have to end there, there's no maximum. Let's do everything we can to smash that number and blow a hole in the roof in the fight agaisnt Cancer.
Lastly if you can please shout this call to arms anywhere posible so that more people can get involved we will stand an even greater chance of making this happen.
