Scrubs stars help raise money for Sam Lloyd's cancer treatment

The GoFundMe page has so far managed to raise nearly two-thirds of its $100,000 goal.

However, as the headaches didn't fade, Sam chose to see a doctor who sent him for a CT scan.

Sam was said to have cheered on the New England Patriots at the Super Bowl 2019 from his hotel room just hours after he received the diagnosis.

Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence tweeted a link to the fundraising campaign and wrote: "This is Sam". He's a pal. Just had his first baby.

Perry, George Miserlis and Philip McNiven, at the Scrubs wrap party April 27, 2006, in Las Vegas. Get involved if you can. "Please donate if you can". His plea was retweeted by Lloyd's Scrubs co-stars Donald Faison and John C. McGinley.

Facebook Messenger Launches an ‘Unsend’ Feature
In the long-awaited answer to many Messenger users" prayers, Facebook announced today that it is launching an " unsend' feature . Instead, we're limited by a timer of 10 minutes that starts ticking down the moment the offending message is originally sent.

According to Lloyd's GoFundMe, Lloyd began experiencing regular headaches in mid-January, and he quickly lost 10 pounds. Initially he attributed the symptoms to his busy, sleepless schedule, which revolved around caring for Weston as well as his ailing mother. Earlier this month, he chose to consult a doctor when the headaches worsened, at which point he was sent for a CT scan.

"Within a day, he was in brain surgery".

The surgeon was unable to remove the tumour, and he was informed that the cancer in his brain had metastasized from his lungs. The cancer was also discovered in his liver, spine, and jaw.

"In the face of this devastating news, Sam and Vanessa have been incredibly strong and positive".

"Humour and laughter, which have been a huge art of Sam's life, will undoubtedly help him with what lies ahead". "So many of those friends have reached out, wanting to know how they can help support him and his family during this hard time".
