Warriors for Wilson


Wilson is a 36 yr old father to twin 6 yr old boys. He was an avid fan of lifting weights and working out. Because of this, his boys know him as "big strong daddy". In the month of June, he decided to finally let his family know that he is unable to keep food down. He lost 25 pounds in two months. He is hungry and he is weak. The big strong daddy the boys once knew is down to a very slim, faded man that is unable to work because of lack of energy. On June 14th 2017, he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. The mass in his esophagus is 3.3cm blocking the passage to his stomach preventing him to pass solid food and only drink liquid. I am asking you to help him keep fighting, to become the big strong daddy he once was to his twin boys. With your help, he would be able to pay for his treatments without worrying how he will be able to afford them. With your support, he would be able to once again take his boys to the park, take them fishing, running, tickle fights, playing in the rain. These simple, little things with his boys are the most important things he miss. His boys deserve to have their father, to guide them on how to be a proper man. His boys shouldn't have to grow up without their father, because of this cruel disease. Imagine not being able to eat, or taste the food you used to crave. Imagine feeling hunger the rest of your days. Please help! He is the only brother I have. I've asked myself why, why him? It's just not fair! I just then realized that it wouldn't help him if I focus on the negatives. I have to divert my energy in being productive. I told myself that, I want him to see hope in my eyes every time he looks at me. Help him have a chance in life, to be there for his boys. You can follow his journey at warriors for Wilson Facebook page. There you will be able to see how your donations help him fight to live.
