The GoFundMe site raising money for Jason Taylor Martinez’s struggle with bone cancer, stomach cancer, brain cancer, steel rods in his knees and back, seizures, waiting for a lung transplant and, of course, rusty blood, is still up. I’ve reported it a few times, and I know a few other people have done the same. So far, I’ve had no response from GoFundMe, but they do include this disclaimer on their website about guaranteeing the legitimacy of fundraising pages.
Jason and Julian made the Facebook group raising awareness of their fundraiser secret. Members of the group have questioned the couple quite a bit, including this exchange.
Here’s Jason and Julian on October 24th. This picture was posted by their roommate, who tagged Jason in the photograph.
Julian’s claim that Jason hasn’t had chemotherapy since last year contradicts what Jason told me last week. He said he had chemotherapy for stomach cancer five years ago, and has had two radiation and two chemotherapy sessions lately.
