Raising money to assist in paying of medical bills\travel expenses for my nephew Matt Martinez, battling Testicular Cancer that has spread

Matt Martinez, a 22 yr old native of Ft Worth, Texas that was diagnosed with testicular cancer in March of 2011 and is currently in Stem Cell Transplant and High Dose Chemotherapy treatment at the University of Indiana Melvin & Simon Cancer Center. He worked as a CNA at a local physical therapy hospital until his cancer prevented him from working, his Family Medical Leave and Insurance ended in middle of June. Matt is one of five children raised by my sister and her husband in a small town outside of Ft Worth.

Procedures to date:
- Surgery to remove right testicle and tumor (end of Mar)
-4 Rounds of Chemotherapy for 3 Stage 3b masses found in abdomen
- Surgery to remove 3 masses from abdomen as masses became immune to chemotherapy
-6 Masses discovered in right lung in mid September
-Stem Cell transplant and High Dose Chemotherapy

Raising donations to assist in the paying of medical bills and travel expenses (as him and his mother are traveling back and forth to Indiana for treatment) for Matt and the family. Any donation amount will be appreciated and certainly will help in the bills at this time. There is a page on FB named Cure My M&M, please like the page and post any encouragement that you can as he reads the posts daily.

As Matt says “Embrace Hope”
