Kent Davis cancer fund (WIGSTRONG)
$25,450 of $50,000 goal
As many of you know he spent quite some time in Denver a couple months back. That time spent ended up bringing him back to Billings cancer free. So, he is in fact cancer free and in remission. That's the good news! The bad news is Wig is still living day to day trying to manage his pain. At times he tells me his pain is even worse than when the cancer was in his body. The cancer left its mark especially in is back region. The heavy doses of chemotherapy caused an ongoing sharp pain in his feet. He has a couple vertebra that were heavily damaged by the cancer. This will be ongoing perhaps the rest of his life.
Wig has a long, long road ahead of him. The expeses that he is dealing with with the doctor bills and medications are still coming in daily. Friends, your support has been incredible and so much appreciated. I'm going to bang this drum again and see if any one can help Wig out with more. Even $5, or $10 will add up to help out. God bless all of you for your love, prayers and support for my bro.
On behalf of Kent and the entire Davis family we would like to thank you all for the outpouring love and support for Kent on Saturday's events. all the donations at the Davis Cup golf tournament were greatly appreciated. The countless hours spent by the crew that helped make Saturday night at the Pasco Eagles such a success was nothing short of incredible. The idea came from Randal Southam, a fellow 1982 classmate to have this fundraiser. He proceeded to get a hold of the 1974 Richland graduate, Brad Upton to do his comedy show that left us all with sore faces from laughing. The Shades, a local band put on a great show after Brad. A lot of people stepped up to donating items for the silent auction and raffle. These individuals put in countless hours to make sure this would be a huge success. Dawna Phillips, Julie Soderquist, Leah Langlois, Becca Bartlett, Teresa Johnson, Gauin Moore, Tracey Peloquin, Cheryl Chacon, Scott Langlois, Heidi Hogan and Kurt Mattingly.
This is a tight knit group of friends we all have been blessed to grow up with here in Richland. All the love and support you have a shown toward Wig is above and beyond what any circle of friends could do. We all thank you very much,
The Davis Family
As you all know my little brother Wig is battling an aggressive cancer known as myeloma. Donations from friends and family have been nothing short of amazing, but that doesn't surprise me. Wig has touched many people with his sense of humor and carefree approach to life. Wig has been a part of my life for fifty years and seldom have I experienced anything negative from Wig. It's not his nature. Regardless of the situation Wig will find good in it . He's exactly like his dad who saw life as simple and fulfilling. Family, good friends, roof over your head, and food on the table is all you really need. To see life in that light is a gift. If everyone took that approach it would be a much better place .
Our parents raised us to stand on our own two feet and help our fellow man whenever possible. People make their own happiness and fight their own battles. In Wig's situation he needs our help. If this fund drive was entirely up to Wig he would have none of it. He's a proud man and again, his father's son. I want him to get better and grow old with his wife and kids so I'm doing the asking. I ask you again to please help in any way you can. Wig is a treasure to all of us. Let's show him how much we have appreciate having him in our lives.
Take care and thank you for all you have done for "Little Funny."
Kent...I will be praying for you and your family...my mom just went through chemo and is starting radiation, so I am familiar with the road ahead. You were always such a fun boss, and a really great guy. The Van Boven Family in Grandview is rooting for you. Stay strong!
Seriously, Michelle Gordon, that's amazing and awesome!!!
Thanx Bonus.. so glad you are there and helping him to have that humor and attitude. Bekah and i will come over later to help pull a shift with a smile. Love you both to the moon and back...
Kent has had his ups and downs over the past couple days since I've been here. His right arm is giving him a lot of pain. His left calf has also been an issue. He still has the Wig humor and eats well. Staying positive is the key. Tomorrow he starts his chemotherapy. Your prayers and positive thoughts are greatly appreciated.
