Shawn Gray's Cancer Battle

$3,170 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 40 people in 6 months
Created September 1, 2018
My First Cousin, Shawn Gray needs your help.  He is battling stage 4 cancer.  If you have ever met Shawn you know he is a fighter and rarely asks for help but this is a battle where he could use a little help from our friends and family.  Shawn was the first person to introduce me to art, creativity, self expression, and individuality.  He is more than a brother to me....he is the epitome of the word family

For the last seven years Shawn has lived his life uncompromisingly.  Three years ago he moved to Gulf Shores Alabama to take a position as head cook and now considers himself a talented interior designer as well (jury is still out on that one); he never let his illness get in the way of him accomplishing his goals.  

Shawn was diagnosed in 2012 and went for his initial surgery in 2013, since then he has done radiation, medication, and most recently a spinal surgery to remove cancerous tissue and infected vertebrae. Since his latest surgery he hasn't been fully mobile and unfortunately can't walk without assistance.

What Shawn needs now is financial support to absorb the costs of visiting specialists in Louisiana, medication, and his day to day post surgery rehabilitation.  Anything you can do to support will be greatly appreciated.  

Thank you,

Kareem

I would once again like to thank everyone who has donated to help me meet some of my obligations that I haven't been able to since I have been unable to go back to work. It hasn't been an easy time. Rehabilitation is one step forward two steps back. Sometimes I think I'm fooling myself and I will never be fully healed. Although some doctors have predicted this is the best I will get as far as my recovery. But I know when I see the prayers and generosity that some of you have shown me I am bound to get better. As my family tells me. In Time.

Stepping in for a second for the big guy. I talk to Shawn almost everyday and he really appreciates the support and love he is receiving from my friends. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for taking your time and donating your hard earned dollars to support my cousin. We both appreciated the love.
