Alex James


Am James from Georgetown, Guyana in South America..I was born 33 years ago to a couple that believe so much in hard work, sincerity, love and dedication to God. I lost my father to a ghastly motor accident when I was 7 years old and continue the struggle of life with my mother till when I was 18 yrs when she decided to join her husband in the land of no return..The vacuum of been without parent noctured me to understand life, be kind to people, respectiful and never segregate in respect of religion, race, colour, age or sex.

Thanks to my uncle and Aunts that sent me to school, I was given the best education I can ever think of and to the best of my fragile ability. ( thanks to you all and I will ever be grateful people).

3 weeks ago I starteed having strange feeling and occurence in my life, I started having constant headache,absolute change of behaviour like the development of an "I don't care" attitude, memory loss, loss of concentration, and general confusion,dizziness, vomiting and speech difficulty.Then I have to took time off work formedical checked up.I went to the hospital with the hope of been treated for stress or something minor but was asked to go for neurological examination, brain scans, and an analysis of the brain tissue. Doctors use the diagnostic information to classify the tumor from the least aggressive (benign) to the most aggressive (malignant)

I did all the test recommended from PET Scan (Positron Emission Tomography) to
CT or CAT Scan (Computed Tomography) and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and I was fully diagnose of brain tumor .There is a tumor the size of a ping pong ball on my brain stem. It was called an Acoustic Neuroma.

I have been living on medication due to the cost of my surgery, I lost my job cause I lost concentration and Sincerely I know am not fit to continue. I have no sufficinent income likewise an insurance policy..I have no option than to gulp down my pride, eat an humble pie and seek for help from here due to the advice of my friend based in USA. I really want to live cause I have 2 kids to cater for and any generosity will be greatly appreciated.

Contributors will help me achieve goals, they will give me back life and save my kids from been fatherless..My kids will not be part of waste generation, they will receive the blessing of having a father beside them to see them grow and not walk through the same path I walked as an orphan.Contributors will have the assurance that I will be ever grateful, I will have the chance to walk tall again and be able to assist whoever comes my way from going down. My hope to set up a non-governmental Organisation that will cater for orphans, less priviledge and people in need will never go down the drain.

I need 22,550 and the money I will raise go toward my future and comprehensive Scans to know the exact stage at the time of going into surgery at Trinidad and Tobago,my surgery in Trinidad and Tobago, my travelling expenses likewise the recuperating period after the surgery. Also, after all treatment I can be able to do little things till I secure a job.

Knowing me tantamount to faithfulness,am generous to the best of my ability, been generous is not that am stupid but I have experienced what it takes to have nothing. People see me as been very thoughful and compassionate. Loving personality cause
A loving heart is the beginning of all knowledge and also believe that flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love.

To those who really want to help but cant afford it due to circumstances, just always remember me in your prayers and help broadcast to those who can. Just please use the Indiegogo share tools..A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. I always believe that a few caring people can change the world. For, Indeed, that is all who ever have.believe that a few caring people can change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have.
