As many of you know, I’m about to turn a corner on the life-altering struggle I’ve been waging for many years now, excited about the possibilities for success, yet nervous about the many uncertainties facing me, and my entire family.
After trying many approaches including natural and spritual healing, and allopathic medicine, I finally surpassed the threshold of viable alternatives, arriving at a point where with one option, I can hopefully beat this cancer. In the next few weeks, I’ll be getting a bone marrow transplant, which according to my doctors, might be the only solution to cure it.
I’ll be out of commission for at least three to six months, and it’s going to be a challenge. The next several months we’re heading into unchartered waters, physically, emotionally, and even financially. We’re going to need all the support we can muster.
Over the years I have raised money for independent media and human rights activism. I never thought I’d ever get to a point where I’d be asking for support for myself, in a time of difficulty. So it is with sincere humility I reach out to you through the Icla da Silva Foundation who has so generously helped us and many others in my situation. So many of you have already been supportive over these many years of struggle, expressing so much love and human solidarity with us that it pains me to put my hand out in this fashion. But the challenges of the next few months are great.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. All procedures go to help patients like me, and Patient's Services at The Icla da Silva Foundation.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
