On July 27th, Cortez was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia or APL for short. He was hospitalized at Emory University Hospital. He now undergoes treatment 5 days a week. Due to the side effects of his medication and strenuous treatments, he is unable to go back to work. Yes, he has health insurance which only covers the hospital bills but APL is such a rare form of Leukemia that his prescriptions are not covered by his medical insurance leaving Cortez financially responsible for the cost of his prescriptions. The monthly cost range between $4k - $5k depending on the dosage he needs for that particular month. The medication is needed for a MINIMUM of 8 months. He is wanting to end treatment all together because he simply cannot afford it. But he is keeping faith that everything will fall into place.
This fundraiser is our last resort to ask kindly that you donate whatever you are able to give to assist with purchasing his prescriptions so that he can continue and WIN his battle with cancer once and for all.

Thanks in advance!
On Jan 22nd Friends and Promoters decided to throw Cortez and Event where all funds goes towards treatment. It was a HUGE success thanks to all the supporters and city of atlanta to those who came out. Once the numbers are finalized you will see the big jump and one step closer to the goal.
Here's a picture of Cortez and his Father Robert David (beneficiary) of this Go FundME. He is currently handling everything for him while he makes Progress!
