Luke Gomez was diagnosed with stage 4 Medulloblastoma (terminal brain cancer) on July 2, 2013. It has metastasized down his spine. Doctor's at UNC were only able to remove one tumor leaving behind nine in his brain and two on his spine. He can no longer walk, has severe hearing loss, a feeding tube, and chest port. All chemo and radiation is now exhausted and the tumors have only shrunk 10%. He has been given a 19% chance of surviving.
He will have another MRI on April 26th to decide if there are any other options left - as of now, there is not in his home state of North Carolina. Luke's family is trying to raise $10,000 to get him to a specialist in Texas for any other alternative treatments that may prolong his life.
