Help Kev In Thailand Beat Cancer

$10,220 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 302 people in 1 month
Many know Kev ( Kevin Burt ) as the upbeat, funny and witty guy from his YouTube channel Kev In Thailand. Kev's Channel 

Kevin 
moved to Thailand four years ago and lives in Pattaya helping tourists and new expats to learn about Thailand.

About six months ago Kevin started to have daily indigestion that in the past month became unbearable, leading him to the hospital this past week where he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer.

Without insurance Kevin will undergo chemotherapy, radiology and possibly surgery with costs nearly 1,000,000 Baht ( $30,000 ) 

He will also have to drive to Bangkok five days a week ( a four hour drive ) for his radiology treatments (30 session).

All funds raised will go towards medical bills and recovery with hopes that we if raise enough maybe we can get him a hotel in Bangkok so he won't have to travel daily for the four weeks this coming month.

Thank you so very much for your support in Kev beating cancer.
