Our dad will need treatment for the rest of his life, we are told his cancer is incurable but we believe in our hearts miracles do happen with friendship and love. 

No gift is too small. Our dad is in good spirits, he is staying very positive and we are learning so much from his example of strength and courage through this very difficult time.

Any contribution will be sincerely appreciated. Prayers and good wishes are also welcome.

If you would like to send our dad  a message you can find him on Facebook under Rigel Galera.  Please feel free to share our message with others.

Dear friends, this is Rigel, and I wanted to personally thank each, and every one of you that has donated to help me with this cause. My heart is filled with gratitude; and with all the love I have received. All this love has given me strength to fight this battle head on. Since I was first diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in mid February, level 4, with a PSA count of 121.1, I have dedicated my time to confront the problem, not only with the help of the UCLA cancer center, but also with my own alternative treatment. I have adjusted my sleeping schedule, adopted a healthy diet, started doing yoga in the mornings, and lots of walking. I have also being meditating a little bit more frequently as well. I have also taken my first shot on April 6th, it's not chemo, but very strong as well, and have to take it every 90 days. Since then I have been feeling a lot better, and to my astonishment I have recently checked my PSA count again, and it has gone down to 17.5. My initial goal was to bring my count to at least half from where I started, but I was really happy to find out that it had gone much lower than I had anticipated. My battle is not over yet, and if I stop right now, my condition will rapidly accelerate to where it was before in a must faster fashion, but I'll continue to fight it until I'm completely healed 100%. I have no doubt at all in my mind that I'll get out of this situation stronger than I was before. I just wanted to give you an update on my condition, thank every each one of you, and affirm you that I will never give up!
Much love, light & peace in your hearts,
Rigel ❤

Whom ever said this is not curable obviously doesn't know Rigel. This is an investment in the success story of a survivor.

Oi,Rigel! Firme na fé porque você já está curado. Meu pai tem câncer de próstata, e faz tratamento com Zoladex 10.8 O médico já nos disse que ele terá vida longa. Assim será com você. Vida longa e muita alegria. Eu também sou sobrevivente de um câncer de ovário, III., e já se passaram 6 anos da última quimioterapia. Conserve um espírito Alegre e uma alma fervorosa, e a vitória já é sua. Forte abraço. Elizabeth.
