Gerard Mantia's family is united to raise money to help him battle against Multiple Myeloma. Please help us alleviate his financial burden.

My father, Gerard Mantia, has been diagnosed with Multiple Myloma, a cancer of the blood. As a result of this cancer he has a painful growth near his spine on which the doctors cannot operate. However, chemotherapy and radiation are possible options in treating this cancer and offering him some hope.
Since being diagnosed Gerard has not been able to work and no longer has insurance to assist in his medical expenses. He is in great and constant physical pain and mental anguish since being diagnosed. He was able to receive one treatment from the Arkansas cancer center before he lost his job, but since then has not been able to return for a much needed second treatment due to lack of finances. I know he suffers daily and deals with the pain the best that he can. I know he never stops worrying for his future and the future of his family. His financial troubles is one worry we would like to take away from him.
Gerard is the biological father of six grown children and father to three more step children. He has always been a loving and strong man and now he is need of your help. All of your donations will go directly to his treatments and medications. Please join us in supporting him and keep him in your prayers. If you have any questions, or suggestions or just need to contact a representative for the family please call Kristen-Nicole (daughter) at (314)452-4226. If you would prefer to send a check you can mail it to: Gerard Mantia at 185 Jennings Rd.,
Jacksonville, TX, 75766. Thank you very much for your support and God bless.
