So in the tradition of trying our best to help out other people. I ran across this today. Basically, this guy’s son has been diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer and is looking for some donations because his insurance won’t cover the treatment that could save his son. Here’s a quote from the site:
“As many of you know my son has been diagnosed with a very rare form of brain cancer. This is something that has devastated and displaced my family (my wife and I have 3 kids). We were supposed to go to New York City for a treatment that would help him. But we hit a snag.
Our insurance will not pay for the treatment and the hospital will not take us now since the insurance will not pay for it. The cost of the treatment is $100,000. This is something that is far beyond what I or my family can afford. But I will do anything to get my son the treatment he so desperately needs. This treatment has shown promise and can extend my son’s life.
So my wife and I are asking you for help. Our goal is to get 100,000 people to donate at least a dollar. That will help us get our son the treatment that he needs. “
So go give him a dollar or five. As far as I’ve been able to determine, this is legitimate and anyone who’s ever had a sick kid should understand how helpless this family must feel. I’m trying to do my little part to urge others to reach out a little and help those around you.
