Support Kevin Gydus and Family

$13,650 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 138 people in 39 months
Hello Friends,

I am a long time friend of the Gydus family and request your support on their behalf.  47 year old Kevin, father of 13 year old Kyle and 11 year old KC and husband to Faith has been diagnosed with stage 4 diffuse large B cell lymphoma.  Thankfully the doctors are acting quickly and treating Kevin's cancer aggressively.  

The Gydus family has served the community through their family business for years which is operated by Kevin and Faith as a team.  Now they are both under incredible pressure to manage Kevin's illness, the children and the family business.  Without Kevin able to work and Faith's role now as primary caregiver to her entire family, time is divided by caring for Kevin, the children and the business.  The Gydus family needs our help.

Please help, no donation is too small.  They have a long road ahead with many financial and emotional challenges.  Let us offer our prayers and demonstrate our love by caring for this beautiful family so Kevin can focus on healing and not be under any more stress than he already is.

Many thanks,
Chris
Rev. Christine Guerrera, LMFT

Hi everyone,

It is such a blessing to know that Kevin is now at his last round of chemo. Thank you God to all who have supported Kevin and his family with prayers, meals and financial donations. We human beings can accomplish so much together; our greatest accomplishments are when we rise up and support each other.

The Gydus family will be receiving many more hefty medical bills as well as their day to day living expenses. It's time for us to come together again and support them. I know so many of you have already but I ask you once again to offer those prayers and donations. They are not done with this battle. It has taken away so much of their yearly earnings and though I know they are humbled and beyond grateful for your support, I know they could use another boost. Please join me in showing our support. Let us provide a little more ease in Kevin's mind and heart as he continues his healing journey. The more we can provide; the more he can concentrate on getting well.

Thank You in advance for your generosity and your open hearts. May your giving be a blessing to you and your families as well. And so it is!

A note from Kevin..

Hi,
I would like to thank everyone who donated their hard earned money to me and my family in our difficult time of need. I am overwhelmed by the generosity, love, and support we have received from friends, family, our local community, St Joes High School and Salve Regina University communities, as well as customers, colleagues of my business, and relative strangers.

You have made us all feel so blessed even during trying times like this. I have found God's grace is strong in our community in so many ways even beyond the financial donations. I have been touched by you all and vow to do what I can to help others when my battle is won.

I have completed my third round of chemo which is the half way point of my planned treatment. It is a very strong regime that takes five days to complete. I am tolerating the treatment as well as can be expected. I have had almost no side effects that many people experience. I do however suffer from extreme fatigue. I am able to work but it is in a very diminished capacity. The donations have been really helpful with the high copays and anticipated medical expenses. This is also the season where I make most of my revenue for the year. That has dropped considerably. Your donations have brought some relief to this huge burden.

Again I can not thank you all enough!
Kevin Gydus
