Gilbert's family and friends are banding together to raise money to help his battle against Esophageal Cancer. Please show your support!

Update December 6th

I’m very excited to announce that my husband’s last Chemotherapy appt (at this time) was on November 28th (Yeah!). He is still weak and of course it will take him some time to get his energy back up, but now that Chemo is over, the healing has begun. We are waiting for his final P.E.T. Scan that should happen in the next couple of weeks to see what the tumor has shrunk to (hopefully it disappeared altogether…keep your fingers crossed).

I also wanted to THANK everyone who participated this past Saturday at the Poker Fundraiser that Mike & Jenny and Mike and Margie arranged for Gil. It was a HUGE success and we thank you for all your donations either with Gift Basket, Food, drinks or Poker…thank you! We had so many of our friends and family come to hang out, eat great food and play Poker. Seeing Gil hanging out and enjoying himself just made the evening so special. Again thank you all!

If you couldn’t make it to the fundraiser and you still wanted to donate, this fundraiser will continue until this Saturday December 10th. Your generosity is very much appreciated.

I hope you get this update so that you know Gil and I are thinking of all of you. Thank you all again for all your love, prayers and support during this trying time. I’m hoping the next time you see us; he will be Cancer Free and getting stronger.

If we don’t hear or see you before the Holidays we wish you and your family the best Holiday ever! I know it is starting to feel like Christmas….All I want for Christmas is my HUSBAND!

We love you all
Happy Holidays and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hello everyone and let me first start by saying THANK YOU SO MUCH! (This is Rhonda, Gil's wife). We are so completely indebted to all of you for your support and donations.

Gil is doing well for the most part. He finished Radiation middle of October and is hopefully on his last stint of Chemo the week of Thanksgiving. He is in good sprits and try’s to keep positive, which I believe has helped him thru all the treatments he has had to undergo. We are hopeful that when he finally gets his CAT scan, that the tumor will be gone. That is OUR New Years resolution. CANCER FREE!
Again, thank you so much for all your positive comments and donations. They have really helped him to stay focused on beating this.

We love you all!
Rhonda

We have set up this fundraiser to hopefully help out my Uncle Gilbert and his family during this difficult time. My Uncle Gilbert has recently been diagnosed with advanced Esophageal Cancer. This has obviously come as a terrifying shock to him and the rest of our family. What is unfortunately equally terrifying is the extra added expenses that has come with this diagnosis. Although he does have insurance, there are additional costs they will have to endure. My Uncle is unable to work a this time which has significantly diminished their income, since it is now only my aunt Rhonda who is basically the sole provider at this time. My Uncle is an amazing man who loves and supports everyone in his life with an open heart. This is a devestating time in all our lives, especially his. We need to do everything we can to help ease the "little" issues that arise, including all the added expenses they have and will occur. We are asking all of you to please give whatever you can in support of my Uncle. I know times are tough for all of us, but even just a dollar out of your pocket will be a generous gift for my Uncle. I thank each and everyone of you in advance for your love and support during this difficult time.
