(EDGE) After launching a crowd funding page earlier this month to help a popular gay porn star from the 2000s battle cancer, an update on his condition has been posted. 

According to Gay Pop Buzz, a new YouCaring page has been created for Benjamin Lemke, who performed under the name Benjamin Bradley for gay porn studios like Falcon and Buckshot. Lemke is currently fighting his second bout of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and his first YouCaring page earned $13,480 out of a $15,000 goal. 

His new page states: 

Ben has spent the past week in the hospital receiving his first round of chemo therapy. The treatments has helped significantly to relieve most of the muscular and nerve pain he was experiencing. (For several weeks his pain level was usually above 6, but would hit 9 or 10 for hours at a time.)

For the next 5 or 6 months, Ben will be returning every 3 weeks to the hospital (a 4-6 day stay) to receive further chemo treatments, along with required lab work visits between each stay. Each treatment will continue to reduce the tumors with the goal of eradicating the cancer. His mom championed over cancer 12 years ago and Ben will too! 

A source connected to Lemke confirmed to Gay Pop Buzz the new funding page is authentic. 

The new YouCaring page has a donation goal of $50,000 and as of this writing has earned nearly $500.
