Go Fund Me Page Created To Aid Nashville Musician Garrett Perales In Angiosarcoma Fight

Garrett Perales, a Nashville musician who has played guitar for multiple artists and was most recently in Ryan Hurd’s band, has stage IV angiosarcoma of the lungs. Friends in the industry have created a Go Fund Me Page to help him with his medical bills, and those wanting to donate can help here.

Sarcoma is a rare cancer in adults (1% of all adult cancers), but rather prevalent in children (about 20% of all childhood cancers). It is made up of many “subtypes” because it can arise from a variety of tissue structures (nerves, muscles, joints, bone, fat, blood vessels – collectively referred to as the body’s “connective tissues”). Because these tissues are found everywhere on the body, Sarcomas can arise anywhere. Thus, within each site of the more “common” cancers there is the occasional surprise sarcoma diagnosis (e.g., breast sarcoma, stomach sarcoma, lung sarcoma, ovarian sarcoma, etc.). Angiosarcoma is one of the many “subtypes” of sarcoma.

Garrett has decided to forgo conventional treatment (such as chemotherapy) and is instead, doing alternative holistic treatments. Thus far, all treatments are being paid for out of pocket as most insurance companies don’t cover alternative medical treatments.
