Barclay Fryerys Medical Fund

$15,460 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 161 people in 32 months

My name is Barclay Fryery and I’ve been diagnosed with Cancer and I know I can survive this. I need your HELP and kindness at this time of need. I have $4,000 a month out of pocket medical expenses plus living expenses. I need to focus all of my energy to healing my body at this time.  I cannot have the stress and worry about living expenses/ medical expenses/ and merely keeping a roof over my head. I want you to imagine yourself in my situation.  I have always been self reliant and independent and find myself utterly dependant on the kindness of others at this moment. Please look deep into your heart and find your way to HELP me now.

 Since 1989 I have been an interior designer and have lived and worked in Connecticut and NYC. I am an interior designer that creates beauty and balance that is suitable, practical and timeless.  I very much love my work. I am single and committed to my craft.  Last year cancer appeared and has been in my life center stage, as I was diagnosed and started radiation treatments in March of this year.  Currently, as August approaches I am starting Chemotherapy and further radiation treatments for the next two years targeting my left kidney, spine, pelvic bone and lymph nodes around the same area.
Months ago I went on a strict diet and herbal extract that was approved for cancer treatment. Drinking fresh clean  water yes I felt a lot of detox and  this weakened me that it has taken a months to recuperate. During the fast and detox , I lost so much weight . Devoid of fat at 60 lbs, In addition the added side effects from the daily radiation treatments left me emotionally and physically fatigued.  My doctor has been of great comfort, he has many years of experience and has had a highly successful cure rate.

In the meantime, I have been unable to work since last year, and my treatments will prevent working for the rest of the year and next year. As I have been the sole person to make my income, my health crisis has turned into a financial crisis. 

 This is my first Go Fund Me account; this funding campaign was created to help me help myself. The $30,000 I’m hoping to acquire with this campaign is to pay for my living expenses and medical expenses including hospital stay and fees. While I hope I may recover soon and return to my work, there are a lot of unknowns. I do know that my top priority on a daily basis is to heal my body and calm my soul. I am feeling in good spirits, living one day at a time, and immensely grateful for the love surrounding me. Friends and new strangers are my guardian angels. I also feel such love from this beloved community of Facebook and my past of living and working in Greenwich, Connecticut. However, let me say it straight, I need support NOW to save my life!  I’ll be very grateful for whatever you can send my way.  Indeed this is a serious crisis of life and death. 

For years I have supported those in need, doing fund-raisers for others, making donations to those in need, and giving free advice to those who could not pay. Perhaps you are one of those people I have helped? Now I am reaching out to you, our community, for the support that I so deeply need.
