Michael’s Fight with Cancer

$7,726 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 151 people in 10 months
Hello,  

This GoFundme has been created to help my cousin Michael fight his battle with Cancer. He is only 19 years old, yet this is his 4th attempt at trying to beat his cancer! He was first diagnosed at the very young age of 15 and has been fighting for his life ever since, he has beat it 3 times and still continues to fight. His light , faith, family support, and positive outlook is what have helped him keep going. Since this is his fourth time, the doctors told him that his body is very weak and he cannot withstand going through radiation or chemo. They have suggested he look into other hospitals and even travel out of California to find other treatment options that can possibly save his life. If he does nothing he has 1 to 6 months left, but if we can gather enough money to help him and his family pay for these costly treatments then we can try and save his life!!!! My aunt and uncle are is disbelief, they don’t want to lose their only son! I ask that you pray and help spread the word, even if you can’t donate. God hears our prayers and spreading the word will only help my cousin have a really fighting chance. He still has his whole life ahead of him and I don’t want to believe there are no other options.

UPDATE - 6/21/19

It has been a while since we have updated everyone on how Michael has been doing and I will be sharing a message on behalf of my cousin and family who are still fighting everyday to beat CANCER!

Por favor ayuda para la familia de Michael Castro quien actualmente cuenta con 20 años de edad y quien desafortunadamente el pasado 29 de Mayo del 2014 fue diagnosticado con cancer en la sangre (leucemia) recibiendo inmediatamente sesiones de quimioterapia durante los tres años posteriores a su detección recae nuevamente al finalizarlas y luchando por salir adelante pese a las circunstancias, después de un tiempo le ofrecen como opción un trasplante de Cart Cell y solo le funcionó 5 meses y volvió q recaer teniendo que regresar al sufrimiento de las quimioterapias para posteriormente volverle a realizar un trasplante de médula ósea sin obtener el resultado esperado y nuevamente recae y está ves no le dan más esperanzas, sin embargo sus ganas de seguir viviendo lo llevan a él y a nosotros su familia con mucha fe a otra oportunidad de trasplante de médula ósea y todo lo que conlleva.
Hoy el trasplante está funcionando al cien por ciento, pero sabemos que hay efectos después de cada trasplante y por el momento tenemos más de dos meses y medio en el hospital luchando contra los efectos secundarios. Nuestra familia depende de un solo ingreso y las finanzas se han vuelto tan estrictas, que apenas podemos mantenernos al día con nuestro renta, comida, y pagar todas nuestras facturas. Es por eso que si podemos contar con alguna ayuda económica de su parte para poder salir adelante financieramente debido a estos cinco difíciles y dolorosos años pasados y seguir en la lucha y recuperación de nuestro hijo quien al salir del hospital tendrá que ir a la terapia física dos o 3 veces por para poder volver a recuperar su movilidad y caminar por si solo nuevamente. Hoy por mi, mañana por ti...Gracias por su ayuda ! y que Dios se los triplique .

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

Please help for the family of Michael Castro who is currently 20 years old and who unfortunately on May 29, 2014 was diagnosed with blood cancer (leukemia) receiving chemotherapy sessions immediately during the three years after its detection he relapses again at the end and struggling to get ahead despite the circumstances, after a while they offer him as an option a transplant of Cart Cell and it only worked for 5 months and he relapses again having to return to the suffering of the chemotherapies. Later they were able to perform a bone marrow transplant, but they did not get the result they were expecting and again relapses and you see do not give him any more hope, however his desire to continue living will lead him and his family with a lot of faith to another bone marrow transplant opportunity and all what it entails. Today the transplant is working one hundred percent, but we know that there are effects after each transplant and for the moment we have more than two and a half months in the hospital fighting against the side effects. Our family depends on a single income and finances have become so tight that we can barely keep up with our rent, food, and pay all of our bills. That is why if we can count on some financial help from you to be able to get ahead financially due to these five difficult and painful years and continue in the struggle and recovery of our son who when leaving the hospital will have to go to physical therapy two or three times in order to regain his mobility and walk by himself again. Today for me, tomorrow for you ... Thanks for your help! and may God triple them.

UPDATE:
I wanted to update all of you guys and let you know how thankful I am. As of now, I am receiving chemotherapy once a week until I get into remission. The plan is to do another bone marrow transplant but that’d be in a few months hoping I stay in remission. (Which I have faith I will) From all the support coming from my own city to all over the world its had me speechless knowing how many people are behind me. This journey I’m currently battling has me appreciating life in ways I couldn’t even explain, it has me knowing that I’m still here for a reason. Thank all of you guys for all the support,prayers and positive vibes
