Stage 4 Hodgkins lymphoma lets win

Raised by 71 people in 17 months
My name is Blake Platt, I am the youngest of 3 and currently in a position where life is testing my strength. Last August, my older brother Johnathan was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma. It came to a major shock to my entire family because Johnathan has been an extremely healthy person up until this point. In my hometown of Cordova, Alaska where we fish commercially, my brother was misdiagnosed not once but twice which resulted in my brother almost losing his life. When my mother put her foot down and wouldnt settle for the doctors opinion, she had decided to take my brother to Anchorage where he was seen by an oncologist. When the culture test had come back, it was set in stone; My brother was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer. I personally can't believe that this has happened... My brother is the rock out of us 3 boys.. My oldest brother christopher and myself have had some struggles dealing with addiction in the past and have caused our family a lot of stress and heartache. Its not fair some one such as my brother Johnathan has to go through all of this. He has been a role model to both Christopher and myself giving us that reassurance that if there is a will there is a way. I am doing this to raise the money that my brother will be in debt for the rest of his life over. He is too prideful to ask for help, and I can't stand to see this man stress even more so because he has no way to pay the funds back. I am not here to beg, I just really would appreciate anything that anyone can do.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Sincerely,
Blake Platt
