The friends and family of Peter Martinez are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against cancer. Please show your support!

Peter was diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma of the Pancreas stage 3 on 4/22/12, the day of his birthday. As many of you might know, there is no cure for this illness and prognosis for what is now stage 4 is not positive. However, we remain hopeful that the causes and conditions necessary for a remission will present themselves. We are grateful for each day we are given. My name is Marlene Saile and I met Peter 20 or something years ago at a New Years eve party in New York City when he drove there to pick up my best friend, Julie. He became my best friend's husband (now divorced) and father to their 2 most amazing and beautiful girls, Ariadna and Mikaella. He also became my friend. I personally believe that hope is stronger than what we see, touch and feel. Reality is not necessarily that which is presented by the senses and I do believe that in that invisible world a profound transformation could happen. We can help how he treats this illness!

To this end, we are doing this one fundraiser as follows:

1. Dr. Vega, M.D.- Peter Peter wants to visit Dr. Victor A. Marcial-Vega, M.D. near his house. He uses a multi-faceted nutritional and herbal supplementation program to strengthen the immune system and the patient's own inner defenses. He uses a variety of supplements and herbal remedies, including Essiac, bovine cartilage, enzymes, Willards water, and aromatherapy essential oils. Psychospiritual counseling is provided too. He is at: New Health Horizons 9260 SW 72nd Street Building #6 Suite #219 Miami, FL 33173 Phone: 305-275-1098 Facsimile: 305-275-1099 This doctor used to be an oncologist at Baptist Hospital but now dedicates himself to holistic cancer healing with great success. I believe that there is always hope. Hope is stronger than fear. Dr. Marcial Vega talked to Peter and told him the first visit is $400 and the subsequent ones are $250, plus other fees. Peter's insurance will not cover these costs. We are asking all of his friends and family to donate whatever they can, even if is it is just $1, to help get the funds to facilitate the above for Peter. Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.

I am making this fundraiser only for one week from this date because time is of the essence. So please do not delay and give forward.

2. After this one, we will do another one for several other costs that are imperative like Cantina food delivery, Thai Massage which is helping him tremendously with his back pain, acupuncture, and so on.

NOTE that because of your generosity with this fundraiser, Peter will be able to use the funds not only for Dr. Vega but for the above as well including the Cantina.

Please stay tuned as I update this page with the latest.
