Standing Up To Cancer! METAL & PUNK

Hello, my name is Jaime Gonzalez. I have been battling cancer for about a year now. The cancer is related to the kidney cancer that I had. The kindney with the tumor has been removed, but since the cancer was Renal cell carcinoma, it can metastasises it most commonly spreads to the lymph nodes, lungs, liver, adrenal glands, brain or bones. In my case it spread to the lymph nodes of my lungs and even the left pelvic bone. I have gone through treatment for the bone and lungs, the bone metastasis grew. As for the lungs, I had a lot of results! A lot of the nodules went from centimeters to milimeters and even smaller than that, which is good! But, there is one spot on the right lung that grew,which I am waiting on the biopsy results for that. The doc wants to concentrate first on the lung and then get to the pelvic bone. Which I am okay with. 
I have been a long time supporter of the local music scene. I currently work at Hogwild Records a local record store that has been around for over 33 years now. I am a fan of several other genres. My favorite has to be Metal! I have worked with several bands throughout the years that have played here in San Antonio. A lot of them are up and coming Thrash Metal bands and have always had a good response here. All the bands have been really great to work with! All of them super cool guys! A lot of them have become really good friends now. Which is cool! Working at the record store I have made several friends there too! A lot the customers are now friends. Which is really cool! I have also had the chance to make friends with several different touring national bands! They too have become good friends! 
I can say that having cancer really messes with you mentally! I have had at times days of happiness and days of sadness. Cancer is very stressful and just emotionally draining! I don't wish cancer on anyone and even my worse enemy! It isn't fun! The treatments can be very rough! I can say that during my last treatment I really felt like giving up! But my parents who have been my biggest support helped me get through it and talked me into not giving up. All of my family and friends have really been there and it helps having them there! It definitely gives me strength and the will to carry on!
I approach all you, my family, my friends for some help. My insurance covered a lot, but I still have a lot to pay out of pocket. Also, there is a drug that the doc wants to put me on, but it is rather expensive. The drug is called Sutent and can help shrink the nodules in my lungs and hopefully even the pelvic bone area that is effected by the cancer. I really need this drug to help me fight the cancer in me! It just sucks that something that can me is so expensive! But I have to see if the money can be raised here? I need your help family and friends.
I really appreciate all the help I can get! You my family and friends have been there for me throughout this whole ordeal and have blessed me with positive vibes, prayers, and in being your thoughts! I am very grateful to all of you for the support! I ask all of you for your help in this time of need. Please come support the show and donate! 
THANKS to all! As always...METAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
