My father, James Rodriguez, has been diagnosed with Stage III Multiple Myeloma. Please show your support toward his battle against cancer.

The family and friends of James Rodriguez are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against Multiple Myeloma. We had never even heard of Multiple Myeloma until just a few weeks ago. 

Multiple Myeloma is a cancer that starts in the plasma cells, a type of white blood cells, that make up the body's bone marrow. Plasma cells help your body fight infection by producing proteins called antibodies. In Multiple Myeloma, plasma cells grow out of control in the bone marrow and form tumors and lesions in areas of solid bone. If left untreated it can cause HyperCalcemia, renal insufficiency, anemia, and lytic bone lesions. 

James is currently 60 pounds lighter than this site's featured picture, he has a fractured hip, fractures in his spine and ribs, bone lesions, and tumors that are beginning to spread throughout his body. 

His Oncologist has designed a very extensive treatment plan for his specific diagnosis.  Unfortunately, he doesn't have insurance and his treatment is extremely expensive. 

Without treatment, the doctors say he has less than a month to live.. 

Please show your support by donating to his cause. Our family greatly appreciates your support and compassion. We thank you from the bottom of our heart.

ALL proceeds will go towards James' medical bills and treatments.
