Girshel Javakhishvili, a young Georgian musician, who took part in the popular TV program called Vano’s Show for several seasons, as a keyboardist, is suffering from stage 4 bone cancer and desperately needs help.

After playing several years at Vano’s Show, Girshel went to the USA in 2010 to pursue his dream of becoming a world-class musician.

“I have been battling cancer since 2011.

I have gone through the excruciating agony of chemotherapy and almost did not make it
through the ordeal. I have had BCG treatments as well as multiple rounds of radiation. When cancer resurfaced last fall, I entered a clinical trial for a new immunotherapy drug. This new drug had no affect on the cancer which continues to spread.

As Western treatments have failed me, I want to go overseas for cancer treatment. I will be receiving treatments overseas for about two (2) months according to the initial assessment. Unfortunately, my health insurance will NOT cover any of the costs,” Girshel explains.

Here is the link where you can donate money to support him.
