Help me defeat cancer

First of all a big thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this!! My name is Juan Alvarado. I am a 21 year old whose life changed entirely on August 2020. I was diagnosed with cancer and underwent emergency surgery to remove a massive cancerous tumor in my pelvic area. After surgery, CT Scans revealed that the cancer has spread into my back and chest lymph nodes. These results placed me into a stage 3. Oncology appointments were made to come up with a plan of treatment and the best approach for this situation. The oncologists decision led us to a placement of a portacath, 12 weeks of aggressive chemotherapy, and follow up MRI Scans. Chemotherapy will be scheduled for the ending of October 2020. The next few months will not be easy, but I am feeling strong and positive that the outcome will in my favor. Your contributions will specifically go towards Chemotherapy, unforeseen medical bills, doctor visits, medication, and check ups. Here’s a little bit of information about me. I am a very highly motivated 21 year old with big goals and big heart to help out everyone around me. Before COVID-19 Pandemic I was living in Houston Tx. I left my parents home in South Texas for a better job opportunity and to expand my entrepreneurial skills and mindset. Aside from my full time job, I would work on my business ideas to create passive income so I would be able to come back home sooner. Sadly, due to this pandemic we are living in my job shut down till further notice. This forced me to put a pause on my goals and come back home. Ultimately all this adds more to the amount of stress my family and I are under. Thank you so much once again for reading this. Any contribution will be highly appreciated. My family and I thank you in advance and we will keep you updated on this journey! God bless.
