I met Jesus 25 years ago and we have gone through some really amazing times and also some sad days but never like what we are going through now.
On Thanksgiving of last year I started feeling pain in my left leg but did not think much of it. We decided to go to a Doctor. Just before Christmas the Doctor found a blood clot. By then walking for me had become almost unbearable but since I am a cameraman I had to work. By New Years, the pain was so horrible that we had to go to the emergency room and by then the doctors discovered that I also had Squamous-cell carcinoma (Colorectal cancer ). it took them almost 3 months to start treating the cancer. The blood clot could not be treated anymore because it was causing me severe bleeding which led me to having several blood transfusions. Treatment began about four months from the time we first went to the doctors. Sometimes I see the news and some people say we have the best healthcare in the world but since I have been sick we have come to realize how fragile life is and how quickly you can go from eating a delicious turkey leg and into the sad and sour taste of despair. I have not been able to walk since late January due to the large blood clots and now because the Chemo and the radiation have taken most of the life out of me. In the lighter side of life Jesus and I Love Modern Family. In a way we are very much like Cameron Tucker (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell Pritchett (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) Jesus is like Cam and I am like Mitchell. I have always been the bread winner and Jesus took care of the household and all other things. Now we have the Impossible task of getting back on our feet. The money I am asking for is for living and medical expenses. To give me the chance of not worrying and for Jesus to give me his time and love. Jesus has given me the most amazing care, since having cancer means Caring 24/7. I know that if we reach our goal we will pay forward to any other Modern Family who in one time or another will need it. If you send us a gift donation of 25.00 dollars, we will give a child or adult that is suffering from the hardships of Cancer one of Jesus's necklaces or a set of his unique Fun earrings or, if you prefer, we can send them to you so that you can give them to the person you love the most, And if you give us a larger donation we will send you one of Jesus's fine art prints or any other artwork. (Jesus, by the way, although known in only certain circles is considered by many to be a very important artist.)
Thank you for opening your minds and hearts.
Family is not only the one you are born into but also the one that God sends your way. Thank you.
Paul Snell & Jesus Torres-Martinez Snell.
