Fundraiser for Manuel
Hello friends please consider supporting Manuel and my beautiful and amazing friend Sam-ia Perez Anything helps! THANK YOU
Love you guys..
Manuel underwent a massive surgery and bowel resection to remove the 12 cm mass that had been growing on the outside of his colon.
Fast forward one year later and the cancer has now come back in two areas. This means he will require another invasive surgery in the next few weeks followed by one year of chemotherapy.
Unfortunately, because his cancer is so rare and only found in only 1% of males, there is little research done. BC Cancer only offered two types of drugs that they have found works for a similar cancer, but not for his specifically. Therefore, Manuel has decided to also undergo holistic remedies to help with re-occurrence and chemotherapy side effects.
Every month between the IV’s, supplements, medical expenses and alternative therapies they spend $4,000. Collectively, as their friends, we have decided to host a fundraiser on Sunday December 15th to help Manuel and his family win this battle. Our goal is to raise $48,000.
We understand we’re holding this fundraiser at a busy time of year, therefore for those who are unable to make it, you can donate directly via this link.
