This is Khun Kom, someone very dear to me. He is a private man, so by posting this, I am sacrificing a bit of his privacy in order to assist him in a desperate time of need.
He has stage 4 lung cancer. This means that the cancer has spread past his lungs and has affected the surrounding area. He has a good support system from his family and three sons, but this mostly involves emotional and familial support. Financially, everyone is struggling to help keep him afloat, and pay for needed expenses.
