Roger's Battle Against Cancer

In August of 2016, Roger was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer at the age of 41. The battle against cancer has been a hard one, especially at such an advanced stage. Roger has always been an enthusiastic, outgoing, and active person. He's a great husband, and an invloved father, dedicating his free time to volunteer as a coach for his kid's competitive soccer teams. After being diagnosed, he had to give up his passion of coaching to focus on recovering his health.
Since his diagnosis he has visited different specialists and tried treatments including chemotherapy and immunotherapy, but with no success. So we look to take a different approach: alternative medicine. Sadly, these kinds of treatments aren't liable for financial aid. We need you to help us reach our $30,000 goal so that Roger can continue his battle and beat his cancer. Even the smallest donations make the biggest impact, and if Roger has effected your life in anyway, we encourage and appreciate that you spread this page with your friends and family. If you woud like to know more about the treatment feel free to visit http://www.oasisofhope.com/ , and thank you for your support. 
Currently, Vidmary Rodriguez is Roger's wife and caregiver, and has taken time off work to take care of her husband. Her kids continue to go to school, and with no one with a full time job, our family needs all the financial support we can get, and we sincerely appreciate all the support we have already received from everyone.


En agosto de 2016, Roger fue diagnosticado con cáncer de colon en etapa 4 a la edad de 41 años. La batalla contra el cáncer ha sido difícil, especialmente en una etapa tan avanzada. Roger siempre ha sido una persona entusiasta, extrovertida y activa. Es un gran esposo, y un padre involucrado, que dedica su tiempo libre entrenando los equipos de fútbol de sus hijos. Después de ser diagnosticado, tuvo que dejar su pasión de entrenar para enfocarse en recuperar su salud.
Desde su diagnóstico, Roger visitó diferentes especialistas y probó tratamientos como quimioterapia e inmunoterapia, pero terminaron sin exito. Entonces buscamos un enfoque diferente: medicina alternativa. Lamentablemente, estos tipos de tratamientos no son cubiertos por seguro. Necesitamos que nos ayudes a alcanzar nuestra meta de $ 30,000 para que Roger pueda continuar su batalla y vencer su cáncer. Incluso las donaciones más pequeñas harán un gran impacto. Si Roger ha influenciado tu vida, alentamos y apreciamos que compartas esta página con tus amigos y familiares.
