This is for my brother Greg. He is fighting a battle against cancer, but needs help. All funds will help to pay expenses to win this fight!

In July 2010 Greg was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer. Within a few short days, the typically happy go lucky guy was thrown into a terrifying situation. Surgery was scheduled soon after the diagnosis, and what seemed to be a work of fiction was unfolding faster than anyone could comprehend.

This is the most recent addition in a long line of adversities the strongest person I know has had to face. Before he was even born, he suffered a stroke which has rendered his left arm nonfunctional. Despite living his entire life this way, he has done nothing but thrive.

At least until July 2010. After receiving this diagnosis, it seemed as if he lost any and all hope. This was crushing to everyone to see him this way. A person who could always see the positive in any situation who seemed to want to give up. With encouragement from family and friends, he found strength to fight. After surgery, the next year was spent with radiation therapy and CT scans.

Today, he is doing much better, and trying to move past this experience. He must continually undergo testing to keep ahead of the possibility of remission. Despite a marked improvement of his personality and health, the biggest reminder of what he endured is the constant expense. Each month, the majority of his income is spent to repay medical bills due to no insurance. He has received help from family and friends, but there is still much more to be paid. My hope is, with the help of giveforward supporters, we can pay the bills and allow Greg to continue to live, and finally win his fight against cancer.
