The family and friends of Bryan Smith are uniting to raise money to help pay for medical expenses not covered by insurance

Bryan is a 26 yr old who was diagnosed with oral cancer about a year ago. It has metastasized to his lungs. He has never used tobacco or illicit drugs, and tested negative for HPV, excluding all the most common causes for oral cancer. He has been through multiple surgeries, chemo, and radiation, with no success. Now the doctors at the University of Michigan have given up on him. We r not ready to give up. He has a daughter and 2 step-daughters as well as a loving family and friends. Bryan is one of the kindest, most compassionate, and strongest people I have ever been fortunate enough to know. We used to talk about our future together, now he cannot speak at all. Everything he takes in has to enter his stomach via a feeding tube. He is so heavily medicated due to his chronic pain that he can barely interact with his loved ones. We have been given hope by people we know personally who have had success with alternative treatments, but we cannot afford them. His life is worth far more than the cost of treatment. The clinic we are hoping to raise money for offers integrative treatment, combining low-dose chemotherapy with homeopathic remedies. I am begging anyone who can afford to help us in any way possible to please do so. It kills me every day to watch him suffer and feel that help is out there but just out of our reach because we cannot afford it. Please help in any way you can. Bryan, like so many other people with this devastating disease, deserves to overcome this. I want more than anything in the world to be able to hold him close to me and talk about our plans for the future once again.
