Juan's Fight Against Cancer

Juan Duque is a 45 year old loving father and husband who has been fighting against cancer since 2011. He was originally diagnosed with kidney cancer just days before his wedding day. He had surgery and chemo and just two years later a metastasis was diagnosed. He has been through countless surgeries, trials, new treatments, and hospitalizations and has made it fiercely through every single one. Juan is constantly fighting through every stage of treatment to see his 4 year old son grow up along his wife Jossette.
However, while he was undergoing yet another session of radiation, his grandmother passed away and Juan traveled to South Carolina to be with his family during this difficult time. Unfortunately just days before he was going to return home to Miami, Juan was taken to the Emergency room with some unexpected complications. He has now been in the Intensive Care Unit for almost two months and was recently transferred to another hospital near his home in Miami to continue his treatments. He was transferred via ambulance and due to his delicate state that comes with an incredible amount of medical complications and expenses. Due to his medical condition Juan has not been able to work for some time, which means his current insurance will end soon.
His cousins and friends are getting together to start this Go Fund Me with the hopes of helping Juan and his family pay for all of the accumulating medical bills and continue his cancer treatments.


Juan Duque es un amoroso padre y esposo de 45 años que ha luchado contra el cáncer desde 2011. A Juan le diagnosticaron cáncer de riñón solo unos días antes de su boda. Se sometió a cirugías y tratamientos, cuando pensó que estaba en remisión le diagnosticaron una metástasis en la zona pulmonar. Desde entonces ha enfrentado innumerables cirugías, protocolos, tratamientos experimentales y hospitalizaciones. Todos y cada uno las ha superado con gran fortaleza. El motor que mueve a Juan contra la enfermedad es su familia y sobre todo su hijo Jerónimo de 4 años, a quien quiere ver crecer al lado de su esposa Jossette. 
Hace unos meses, mientras se sometía a otra sesión de radiación en el cerebro, su abuela falleció  y Juan viajó a Carolina del Sur para compartir este difícil momento con su familia. Desafortunadamente solo unos días antes de volver a Miami, Juan fue hospitalizado en esa ciudad con complicaciones inesperadas. Tras siete semanas, logró ser trasladado a un hospital cerca de su casa en Miami para continuar con el tratamiento. Debido a su delicado estado, la situación ha generado una increíble cantidad de complicaciones y gastos médicos. Aunado a esto, Juan no ha podido trabajar desde hace algún tiempo, lo que significa que quedará sin seguro médico pronto. 
Sus primos y amigos se han reunido para comenzar este Go Fund Me con la esperanza de ayudar a Juan y a su familia a pagar todas las facturas medicas acumuladas y continuar con sus tratamientos contra el cáncer.
