Help a friend fight cancer

I would love for you to help my friend Larry Solomon, who has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He is going to be paying out over $10,000 in out of pocket expenses before this is through, plus he have to be taking a lot of time off from work soon, and his income is already down significantly from previous years. Making ends meet was already hard, and now he has no savings left.
I have helped Larry to set up this page because I know that he will need his friends and family to help him, not just financially, but with emotional support, travel, and in-person friendship.
The coming weeks will be critical. He needs help right now to stay ahead of his bills.
If you are in a position to give a little, please do. It will make all the difference.
I know he'll be cured from this. I want him to worry less, and heal more, and faster.
Thank you,
Anne Leighton

A message from Larry:
Cancer is a problem that many people face in their lifetimes, but I never thought it would be me... I suppose that was some kind of arrogance... to think I couldn't ever get sick like this. Being diagnosed with cancer is a terrible shock. This is Prostate cancer, it is a moderate case, but far enough along that I am being told that I must deal with it now. I also now suffer from hypertension, and new medication has lowered my energy levels. I am starting treatment and there will be surgeries.
It has become clear that I need financial help in order to get through the coming months. The need is immediate and ongoing. Medical insurance won't cover everything. There will be thousands in out-of-pocket costs. There will be periods of time when I won't be able to work. Loss of income makes this even harder.
It's difficult to be saying all of this. But some of my best friends have encouraged me to set aside my pride, and ask for help from everyone. The goal set on this page is a best estimate of my financial shortfall.
I am receiving advice and guidance from some wonderful friends. I am hopeful that I will get through this, be cured and able to resume a fully active life in the very near future.
Thank you for your support.
I love life, and I love you all...
