Help Kev In Thailand Beat Cancer

$10,770 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 326 people in 2 months
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.

UPDATE 5/12/19
Hey everyone I just spoke to Kevin.
He is out and about looking to go get some Swansons's Ica cream! lol

He has two Dr. appointments this week to see where they will go from this point.

All in all Kevin is strong willed but weak physically. He is joking and being clever as usual, but spends most of the time resting at home.

Thanks again for all the support and concern. Will post again after the Dr. visits.

Update 5/2/2019
Hello all, Kevin has been resting at home this week.
It wasn't an easy week at all to be honest, but he is doing as well as can be asked for.
Today he had some soup. Yes...it's been a tough week.
Good news is that now he is "spunky" about getting an IV treatment tomorrow. These treatments make a world of difference when you are dehydrated.
Monday starts radiotherapy again and the daily trips to Bangkok.
Thank you all again and I'll post more later this week.
Rob.

Update on Kev 4/27/2019

Kevin went for his Doctors appointment today and was advised to rest this week, meaning no radiotherapy for this week.
After chemo therapy this week Kevin has had no appetite and struggles to keep fluids down.

Again he is in good sprits but he is very weak as expected. Once he is feeling better he will be on Facebook again.

Thank you all again for the support and concern and I will keep you updated if anything changes.

Thank you, Rob.
