Shawn Gray's Cancer Battle

My First Cousin, Shawn Gray needs your help.  He is battling stage 4 cancer.  If you have ever met Shawn you know he is a fighter and rarely asks for help but this is a battle where he could use a little help from our friends and family.  Shawn was the first person to introduce me to art, creativity, self expression, and individuality.  He is more than a brother to me....he is the epitome of the word family

For the last seven years Shawn has lived his life uncompromisingly.  Three years ago he moved to Gulf Shores Alabama to take a position as head cook and now considers himself a talented interior designer as well (jury is still out on that one); he never let his illness get in the way of him accomplishing his goals.  

Shawn was diagnosed in 2012 and went for his initial surgery in 2013, since then he has done radiation, medication, and most recently a spinal surgery to remove cancerous tissue and infected vertebrae. Since his latest surgery he hasn't been fully mobile and unfortunately can't walk without assistance.

What Shawn needs now is financial support to absorb the costs of visiting specialists in Louisiana, medication, and his day to day post surgery rehabilitation.  Anything you can do to support will be greatly appreciated.
