The Family and Friends of Walter L Alexander (aka Butch) are uniting to raise money to help with his battle with Advanced live cancer.

(Helping Walter) Let me tell you about who Walter is: Walter is 65yrs and was born in calif, on June 2 1947 , Is a United States Marine Veteran - (Vietnam) He has been married for 18 yrs to Karen and has Three Daughters and two sweet little grand-daughters and Two sons. He loves his animals which are all dogs all 12 of them and takes dogs in when no one else whats them. Walter is a amazing person,with lots of love in his heart for others, and I know you would love him to. Walter has been fighting with liver disease since the 2003. In 2011 doctors found a mass on his liver, and told him it was cancer. On March 12, 2012 he had surgery to remove the cancer from his liver. And 7 weeks later it had spread to his lymph nodes and was diagnose with Advanced Hepatocellular carcinoma  cancer. Then his doctor told him about a research study at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical center of Dallas. A Phase I/II study of Bavituximab and Sorafenib The research study does have risks. The study would give him a quality of life or a cure On July 10th he started his first treatment . Even going though this tough time, Walter has a positive attitude and puts a smile on his face. Hopefully the Doctors will find a cure for him and others with this kind of cancer. It`s hard for us to ask for help, but we really need of your help with some medical and related and living expenses. We have tried to do this on are own, but has only got harder. I only wish to make this easier on him though this hard time with out worrying about whats getting paid and whats not and get things he needs because of his cancer So If there is any way you can help us, we would be so very grateful. Walter also has in his right arm Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, a nerve disease that creates hypersensitivity/pain to every little touch. He has had this for 9yrs. Thank you for taking the time out to read this. Please keep Walter in your prayers. If you have any question please feel free to email me at helpingwalter@yahoo.com Please look up his cancer and the study it will help you understand it more.
