Fuck cancer

Recommended Posts

Well we got some bad news last week regarding my daughter's fiancé, Gavino. He is just 22 and the diagnosis is leukemia. He is a great kid and has been so good to my daughter and I am honestly still in a bit of shock over it.  He has been admitted at a Dallas hospital and already begun chemo treatments. We set up a gofund me account in his name. Any little bit you can give would be greatly appreciated.  

I hope this is ok with the mods to post this here

I know very little about cancer from experience, and not much more based on what I've read over the past several years.  But my understanding is that the leukemia treatments and mortality rates are better than they were a decade or more ago, so hoping he's got a good shot to beat this.  In any event, very sorry for you and your daughter.  Hope you can be there for them as best you can in these times.

I've done a little research recently on this type of cancer( acute lymphocytic leukemia), it seems that his chances of survival would be much better if he were a child. At age 20 and over, the survivability rate beyond 5 years is between 30-40%, so the outlook is not very good.

That fucking sucks man. Life is too short already without getting leukemia at 22. Hopefully he can fight it long enough to where a better treatment becomes available.

Sorry to hear this. Fuck cancer. Tell him to kick its ass.

Tell him to eat as much hospital food as he can hold down, and that there's always some dude who lives 50 years longer than they think he should. Tell him to be that dude.

Update: Gavino's blood cell counts are improving and he is tolerating his chemo treatments well.  We are hoping he will get to come home by the end of the week. Thank you to everyone for the support.
