Willy has recently got some heart breaking news and it would be fantastic if we can help them out with money for treatments

Willy is 35 years young and out of the blue after a sudden illness what was thought to be an infection has turned to be much worse.

On the 26th of March Willy was diagnosed with stage 4 Bowel cancer, cancer in his Spine and several abnormal lymph nodes.

This has devastated Willy and his Fianceè Amelia and their two young children Rocco 4 and Roman 2.5 years old.

Willy has been given a short life expectancy of between 3 and 12 months, therefore intensive treatment has been started immediately.

He has undergone Radiation Therapy to his spine and will start chemotherapy in the next week for a course of three weeks, this will hopefully help the cancer growth slow down and not spread to any other areas.

There are other treatments available for Willy that are unfunded, and this could potentially give Willy more time with his precious family, they do come at a cost.

Willy is having some tests done to determine which drugs will best help the cancers he has and they range from $3,000 upto $20,000 for a course of treatment. This will be more clear once we have more information.

Willy and Amelia would like to spend as much time together with their children as possible and do some special things together while Willy is still able.

You can give as much as you can or want, we appreciated all this help while Willy and his family get through this very hard time.

Willy is currently on day 5 of his second round of chemotherapy.

He had no side effects last time, but this round has been completely different for him.

From pins and needle feelings in his toes and fingers to his throat and tongue swelling when he drinks.

This journey is so up and down but Willy is still fighting hard against this cancer with all his might.

Thank you again everyone for all your support, Willy and his family are forever grateful for all the kindness, love and positive vibes everyone is giving them.
