Belching Man Tries YouTube for Help

A Venice man desperate to find a cure for his constant belching is seeking help via YouTube.

More than 176,000 people have viewed the video by Ron Johnson and heard about his years-long struggle to control belches that have happened since surgery in 2012, the Orlando Sentinel and MyFoxTampaBay report.

Johnson, who says he is a military veteran and uninsured, says doctors have not been able to cure his problem. He created an IndieGoGo campaign to raise money for a cure.
