This is Brittany Ortiz, I am making this Go Fund me for My boyfriend, Mauricio, he's the most loving and kind person you could ever meet. On July 14th he was having very strong and persistant back pain and he decided to go to the emergency room. No big deal so we thought. He was then admitted for having a very high heart rate. The next day he had to have X-rays and CT scans. We not so patiently waited for the results and it wasn't at all what we were expecting. The Doctors found a cancerous tumor in his right testicle and wanted to do surgery immediately to remove it, they removed it but we got worse news, it was too late the cancer had already spread to his lungs. I sit here writing this at 33 weeks pregnant with our child while my boyfriend lays in a hospital bed receiving Chemotherapy medications. The next few months he will be in and out of the hospital for days at a time while he receives chemo, and as we patiently wait for our baby to arrive.
Please help us as we help Mauricio fight this cancer.
We appreciate everything, and we are especially greatful for the prayers.. You ALL will help us win this fight.
much love-- Brittany Ortiz & Mauricio Ramos
