Our dear friend Dourival has been diagnosed with stomach cancer and is facing a long period of treatment and hopefully recovery. It will be a difficult road ahead for him.
Douri is one of the kindest, most fun-loving people that we know and shares his positivity with everyone around him. His upbeat approach to life makes him one of the best equipped people to handle a situation like this. However, he could use our help. Due to the cancer, he has had to nearly stop working altogether. Although his insurance is covering parts of his treatment, he is incurring some medical expenses that are not covered by the insurance. With the chemotherapy treatment making it difficult for him to work, his income is significantly reduced. And of course, he has medical expenses that are not covered by insurance.
It would be an enormous lift for Douri if we could help take some of these worries off his shoulders. The last thing he should be thinking about is whether he is able to pay for his treatment. We would appreciate any donation you can make, no matter how big or small. Douri's treatment and recovery will take some months, so we will keep this appeal going for as long as he needs help. So please consider also whether you are able to come back periodically and make further donations in future months. Everything will help.
Let's all take this opportunity to help see our friend through this tough time!

Increasing our goalUpdate posted by Martin Wagner at 03:25 pm
Hey all! It's unfortunate, but from my last conversation with Douri it looks like this ordeal will unfortunately take longer than expected. He got his fourth round of round of chemo and has a low white blood cell count, so he won't be able get surgery until it goes up.
