UPDATE: All funds have been and will continue to be direct deposited into Nate and Christy's bank to help them with their expenses while Nate undergoes treatment. They have already been able to arrange paying up on their mortgage and their housing is SECURE! Thank you all so much! If you would like to send help via paypal, you can reach Nate directly via saltforthewound@hotmail.com <3 <3 <3

------

My neighbor and very close friend, Nate Gluck, has recently been diagnosed with  cancer in his stomach and esophagus.
  A lof of you guys know him too, since he has played in pretty much every hardcore band in NJ ever at one point or another (including Ensign and Strength 691) . He is the sweetest guy, and all of us who know him love him dearly. He's always smiling, always warm, and always there when you need him.

Things aren't very good right now. Nate is barely able to eat and will be beginning chemo and treatment really soon. He has lost a ton of weight and he is often too ill even to drive, and he is in a lot of pain. Despite all of that, he is in good spirits and ready to fight this thing. His optomism about all of it makes my eyes well up. But that's how Nate is. He handles everything with a smile.

Things have been incredibly hard on them as of late, and they desperately need our help. Nate's wife, Christy, is one of my best friends. She lost her job, has been unable to find a new one, and now desperately wants to be able to take care of Nate while he is undergoing treatment. To make matters worse, Their financial situation has become dire. They will lose their home if they are unable to pay their mortgage and the medical expenses are already mounting. It's horrible, and if they lose this house they will not have anywhere to go nor the funds to find a new home. They have no savings and the medical bills are already piling up.

Anyone who knows Nate and Christy are aware that they are the kindest, most loving, and most generous people around. A true friend to so many of us. Nate and Christy are always the first ones to offer to help, fill in, bring gas when i run out of it for the 50th time, babysit in a pinch, whatever. Their generosity and kindness has always spoke for itself. And now we have a chance to do something for them. NJHC & NYHC  Let's help them out! Please spread the word!

Please help out as much as you can. Every single penny makes a difference! We can't cure cancer, but we can make sure that they have a home and can cover their bills and deductibles while the doctors handle that part - so LET'S DO IT!

I am very happy to see your response, my brother has been fighting two cancers, one on his spine and the other in his bladder. We put his site up but its a small city so it does okay. His name is Clarence Hobbs... i would love to show him your site to lift his spirits. I hope you're doing well and we are all out here cheering for your recovery.

Nate, there's no point repeating the obvious about cannabis. I have very different issues, but I know what it's like when your body seems to turn against you. You strike me as a good person if somebody is willing to raise money for your plight. (If only I had friends like that. lol) Anyway, I will keep you in my daily prayers, and I hope that you will have a fast, complete recovery. I shall now commence sending you a laser beam of good juju! Blessed be! :)

Nate, I just want you to know that you have been in my heart and in my thoughts a lot lately. Even though we haven't seen each other in a long time, you have always been someone I have counted as a friend. There are few people I have met in my life who are kinder of spirit and sweeter of soul than you. I love you.

Hi! I am a stage IV stomach cancer survivor. I was given 6-9 months to live .. 6 years ago! It had hit my liver. After 6 rounds of chemo, I was cancer free but I chose to have my stomach totally removed. In December 2009, I had a total gastrectomy, part of my liver and my gall bladder removed. I just started my 6th year being cancer free. I am here for Nate if he wants to speak to someone that has been there and done that! I am also part of a wonderful organization that helps other stomach cancer patients and their caregivers. Debbie's dream foundation: http://www.debbiesdream.org/portal/ Please let me know if I can help in anyway! Mel Vincelli
