Help Ray Fight Cancer

$4,505 of $60,000 goal

Raised by 61 people in 2 months
We have set up this page to raise funds for cancer treatment for my brother, Ray Mills.

Ray was diagnosed on December 9, 2017 with a very fast-growing cancer called Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma, Double Expressor.  Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) is an aggressive type of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  

UPDATE 2/17/18

Ray is out of the hospital.  He will be going for his second round of chemo soon. The Dr has already warned that it will have difficult side effects. Due to the size of the tumor, eating solid food continues to be a challenge.

The hope is that the chemo will shrink the tumor and put the Lymphoma into remission. However, lymphoma is notorious for returning after being put into remission via chemotherapy. Therefore, Ray will need to continue with organic juicing, targeted supplements and other means to prevent recurrence.

We are extremely grateful for the support thus far. 
Since Ray is unable to work, he has no source of income. Donations are needed to help with the cost of organic fruits and vegetables and supplements and other therapies.



UPDATE  1/30/18

A new CT scan shows that the main tumor and additional malignant lymph nodes have grown much more rapidly than the Dr's projected in December 2017. Their enormous bulk now presents an immediate, life-threatening situation directly to his urinary and gastrointestinal functions. The only option for emergency reduction of their size is a modified chemotherapeutic regimen despite the high degree of risk it poses due to Ray's pre-existing condition. This emergency measure is now underway, while IV hydration continues around the clock. A follow-up with the previously mentioned comprehensive metabolic treatments remains necessary for resolution of the cancer. As stated before, these treatments are costly and are available only on a cash basis.
We appreciate everyone that has donated, shared, and prayed. Please be assured that all donations are going to his continued health needs and care.


Due to the fast growing tumor pressing upon his stomach, Ray has reached the stage where he is no longer able to eat food or drink liquids. Currently, he is at a local hospital receiving saline IVs due to dehydration. This is only a very temporary solution since the tumor continues to expand at such a rapid rate.  Unfortunately, chemotherapy is not an option due to a pre-existing liver defect.
 
Ray believes his best chance of survival is to travel to a treatment center in Arizona. Unfortunately, Medicaid will not cover the cost of treatment at the Arizona clinic.

Immediate treatment is needed.  It will be equally aggressive, very rugged and expensive.  Ray has a strong will to live and is resolved to endure whatever is necessary to beat this cancer.  He is fighting for his life.  Unfortunately, he has no medical insurance nor any personal financial resources to pay for treatments and much needed care.

Things have reached a critical stage and we have to act now. 

PLEASE consider a donation to help Ray get the treatment he needs to save his life.

Also, we ask that you share this GoFundMe link to your Facebook timeline and ecourage others to share as well.

We would also greatly appreciate your prayers.


Thank you so very much.
