The family and friends of David Lewis are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against Burkitt's Lymphoma. Please help Him.

Two weeks after graduating from high school and turning 18, David Lewis was diagnosed with aggressive Burkitt's Lymphoma.Burkitt’s lymphoma is a highly aggressive tumor, and often life threatening. But it is also one of the more curable forms of lymphoma. With current aggressive forms of chemotherapy that uses drugs in high doses, and with the availability of new measures to support individuals during intensive treatment, this lymphoma is curable in many patients  Within a week of discovering the cancer he had undergone extensive and costly testing; and was admitted for his first round of chemotherapy 140 miles from his home town in Chicago IL. David will have to have each round of chemotherapy as a patient, keeping him away from home for at least a week at a time. The large amounts of drugs he needs requires that he be kept under surveillance. His family is doing there very best to be with him through this difficult time, but it is proving a challenge. Both parents and all 8 of David's older siblings work and most have young children at home. We are hoping that this fundraiser will help David not only pay for his unpaid medical bills, but allow his family to spend more time with him, so that he doesn't have to go through this battle alone.
