Hello my name Tony  ( Roopnarine) Persaud and I was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer, this was discovered during a  routine colonoscopy. I was immediatley rushed to the hospital where surgery was done to removed mast from the colon/rectum area. Doctors confirmed that cancerous cells did penetrate the walls of the instestine but will confirm when a PET scan is done in a week.  I have been asking myself many questions since the day of the surgery, mostly why me, I do not eat red meat, smoke, or eat crazy food only God knows the why.  I have always been the one giving and extending my selft to others in need now I found myself in need of others. As you can image the bills are starting to come in, although my Humana insurance will cover most of the cost of the surgery and some treatments, there is still a huge amout that I am responsible for. I have negoiated with hospital and will need  raise $7500 plus whatever I little I had. I aplogize in advance for having to do this but I am asking for your assistance via this GoFundMe campaign, if you cannot assist monetary I would appreciate you keeping me in your prayers or saying a prayer for me to beat this unwelcoming news. I have begin rapid dose of chemo & radiation, this is being adminstered 5 days per week 24 hours daily for the chemo and radiation once daily for 6 weeks.  I pray sincerly that you will  be blessed with abundance and also heed my warning to have a colonoscopy done when you are scheduled to do so.  

Thank you very much.
