Please Support Eugene's Cancer Battle

What we thought to be an ulcer turned out to be
Pancreatic Cancer.
After a series of tests for his abdominal pain, a CT scan revealed  a tumor in his pancreas.  We were shocked.  In January 2014, Eugene was diagnosed pancreatic cancer.  After a biopsy confirmed that it had spread to his liver, our hearts dropped.  He is now diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer.  As he struggles with extreme pain, with little relief, he is currently undergoing chemotherapy.  The side effects of chemotherapy coupled with pain makes daily life challenging.

Eugene is a 53 year old kindhearted soul, a wonderful husband and father to two young children.  We wish for our children to have as much joy and normalcy as possible while we battle this horrible disease.  Medical bills, daily care and living expenses add to our emotional stress.  

Please help support our family so we can give Eugene the best care and time well spent.  Thank you for your kindness and generosity.

I want to say "THANK YOU" to everyone that supported our family since we found out Eugene had pancreatic cancer. He left us too soon, but that was not his choice. He fought harder than you know. We miss him tremendously.

I am overwhelmed by the kindness and love of family, friends and strangers alike. Thanks so much for easing our burden. I hope that you will be helped when you most need it. God Bless.

I'm at Duke Hospital today. Trying a new chemotherapy. Hoping this one will allow me to eat more and not feel bad for as long as the other chemo.
I want to say THANKS for all the support for me and my family.
