The Joy of the Lord is our strength. Therefore, We will walk by faith and not by sight.

Family and Friends of Gilbert Lee deLaura are uniting to raise funds for medical expenses. Gilbert has been diagnosed with adenocarcinoma- Stage Four.

In March 2011, Gilbert started to experience mid-back pain. He was treated with medications and scheduled for physical therapy. After a few weeks the pain increased and Gilbert returned to his doctors requesting that more tests be done. A MRI was done in June and Gilbert was diagnosed with Cancer- Stage Four.

He had been told that he has six months to a year to live
We were not confident with the diagnosis and started to research cancer care centers located in the Mainland. After hearing Survival stories of cancer patients with Adenocarcinoma, We feel confident that Gilbert has a good chance of survival.

On July 24, 2011 Gilbert was flown to the Midwestern Region- Cancer Treatment Centers of America located in Zion, Illinois where he has started treatment.
Gilbert must receive treatments every month.
The Cancer Treatment Center of America has given Gilbert hope to begin his battle against Cancer.

Although He has many uncomfortable days, He still finds time to put on a smile for his children, family and friends. Gilbert is a warm, humble and loving person.

Your Kokua and generosity will help us to provide the medical care that Gilbert urgently needs.
