Meet Isaac Durig. Isaac is 22 years old and from Howland, Oh. He is the son of Michael and Patricia Durig and a Howland High School graduate. Just a few short weeks ago, Isaac was a normal, healthy, young man. On 9/29/2015, Isaac went to the emergency room for some strange symptoms. He had been coughing up blood and had some blood in his stool. The news he got in the ER that day was grim. Isaac was diagnosed with (ALL) Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. This is one of the fastest moving strands of leukemia. Isaac must undergo a minimum of 30 days of chemo starting immediately. To add insult to injury, he has a fluid sac around his heart, and his chemo is attracted to fluid. They have also found a large mass on his lung; the cancer has metastasized to most of his body. But what you may not know about Isaac is that he is a fighter. Issac's father, Michael, is one of the hardest working men I have ever met. Mike has been working two full time jobs since he was young. He works midnights as a water plant operator for the Mahoning Valley Sanitary District. When Mike gets off work in the morning, he doesn't go home and go to bed like the rest of America, he changes his hat, and operates an excavator for a construction company for the next 8-10 hours. He then goes home and lays his head down for a whopping 4 hours before he gets up and does it again. He has been doing this for the past 15 years to support his children; Nicole, Seth, Nate, Jacob, Isaac and Samuel. The reason I am telling you this is to explain the work ethic this incredible family has. Isaac works for one of his older brothers, Jacob, as an excavator. Jacob is 24 and with the Durig work ethic he owns his own company. I have the pleasure of working with Isaac's two other older brothers at the Howland Fire Dept., Nate and Seth. These two men are rough, tough dudes that do one thing... Get stuff done! And if there's one thing Mike Durig has passed on to these incredible people, it's when you start something, you finish it. Well, unfortunately, Isaac was given the task of beating the most aggressive leukemia. And he's going to finish it. Healthy and cancer free. With your help and prayers we will ease the financial burden put on this incredible family and kick the hell out of this terrible disease called cancer. The funds raised will go towards the medical bills and other costs accrued through Isaac's care and recovery.

Respectfully,
Randy Stottlemire

Many thanks to the Starcher family!!!! They are lending their motor home to the Durigs so they can be close to Isaac as he goes through his treatment!!! If you know Butch, Lisa, Brett, or Blake Starcher, make sure you give them a huge hug and thank them for their help in this time of need. I've personally known the Starchers since I was 5 years old. Fantastic family. Thank you!!!!

Great job everyone! We need help on another front. Isaac is being treated in Cleveland and apparently there is a campground for motor homes/campers set up walking distance from the hospital. I believe it is affiliated with the clinic. Does anyone have a decent sized camper or motor home we can set up there so the family can be close? Please contact me via email through this site or on Facebook. Thanks again everyone!!!
