Jeff East Help During Chemo

I decided to open this GO FUND ME ACCOUNT as my heart goes out to my longtime friend Jeff East>   I know he will beat this! After being diagnosed on August 16, 2017, with stomach cancer,  needless to say, he is in the midst of emotional, physical and definitely financial struggles. Out of the blue after a rush via 911 to the hospital and losing 7 pints of blood he spent 6 days in the hospital part of the time ICU.  He is in the process of attempting to obtain financial help but due to the stage of cancer, his treatment is moving forward at rapid speed. He has been to the doctor 2 to 3 times a week since, In the coming month he will have a PET scan, port put in and chemo twice weekly, followed by surgery, then re-evaluation. EVERYONE is one paycheck away from a disaster, but when you have a job and work daily and illness hits?  I will tell you he is a good man and anything to cover his immediate co-pays and gas and missing income would be great! Thank you

UPDATE :11-26-2017
CANCER SUCKS. Jeff is in good spirits. His first rounds of chemo are complete for several months. Next is surgery to remove the tumor. Then the last scan showed a pulmonary embolism, so he is now taking shots in the stomach every 12 hrs. and surgery next week for a filter and then surgery to remove the tumor. Then several months of chemo AGAIN. He physically can't work ..he's been too sick.
