James Wilburn Survivor


Hi all,

Thank you for visiting the GO FUND ME PAGE for James Wilburn.


I was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer called Germinoma. It is an extremely rare strand that affects the pineal and pituitary glands in the brain. The pineal gland produces melatonin, which helps maintain circadian rhythm and regulate reproductive hormones. So, in essence this gland affects the sleep-wake patterns and reproduction.

I was initially affected with this condition in 2012 and combatted all of the issues. My condition was in remission until 2017. This cancer has however, come back at this time in an aggressive manner. I am experiencing chronic and consistent pain, issues with maintaining proper levels for diabetes and depression.

I am in the process of taking Chemotherapy treatments with a frequency of every 2-3 weeks. I am also getting Stem Cell treatments to remove, freeze and restore my good cells to my body. This treatment will result in me being hospitalized for approximately 60 days.

Cancer has been a heavy economic burden for me and my family. Hospital bills, my inability to work and other expenses are adding up quickly, even though I have insurance. In addition to your emotional support, encouragement and prayers, I’d encourage your financial support.

Please donate to this fund the amount of your choosing. Any donation will be a huge blessing to me that funds a lifesaving treatment for me and my family.

Please look for my updates on my continued progress to becoming a healthier me.

THANK YOU FORVER!

James Wilburn

Many Thanks.
