Help Unite CJ & his family soon

CJ Houzet’s smile and fashion designs never fail to light up a room. His immense creativity and truly loving nature have made him one of my most endearing and loyal friends. It is with a heavy heart that I am trying to accept that he has a short time left to say his goodbyes to his friends and family. He has been fighting Stage 4 tongue cancer which has now spread into his lungs. His positive energy and light through this intense decline has been remarkable but his prognosis is not good. With this in mind I am asking you to consider donating to help fund the travel expenses for my Super Special Friend's parents to make the trip to visit their son for what could possibly be the last time. 
CJ is in Wales and feeling weaker by the day. His parents are in Cape Town, South Africa, where he grew up, and they are desperate to get to spend as much time with CJ as possible. All financial savings have been spent on treatment and there is nothing left. My partner works for British Airways and is dedicated to finding the best pricing even via other airlines to get CJ’s family to him as quickly as possible.

Any and all donations would first be used to fly his parents to Wales and any extra donations would go towards getting his Sister, Tracy and his brother Sean over as well.  The more that is raised the less they will have to worry about lodging and transportation, etc..

Every day gets harder for him because the pain is so bad and we pray he makes it 3 months. God is good and miracles happen every day but we want to plan either way for his Amazingly Supportive Loving family. Please donate so that CJ can have the support and love of his family as he fights for his life.’
