Cancer sucks...Those who have can attest to that. Those who have a loved one who has it can attest to that. It tries to take over your life, and make it the only thing you can focus on. Doctor's appointments, prescriptions, CT scans, try this get this. We want to do whatever it takes to help the process, to find that thing that will fix it all. Thousands of dollars in Copays, doctor's visits, and tests, most of which is not in the budget, but you have no choice but to do it, to get the treatment you need. Bills fall behind, and the creditors don't care that you have cancer, they just want their money. God will provide, I truly believe that, we however have to put feet to those prayers. I didn’t start this campaign with the expectation that a single person would give one cent. If you read this and are moved to give thank you, if not thank you for reading it. My only goal is that you would come away with the inner feelings of someone, and the family of someone who has cancer feels. It’s a fight I pray you will never have to go though. God Bless You!

As you may know my club is putting on a fund raiser for me this coming weekend. This event is to gain funds in part because I've lost my medical insurance . I'm hoping to get it back through the cobra program and that will cost me $1040,00 per month. Needless to say me being on disability this is something we hadn't planed for but we have to do it. God has been in our finances so there's no reason to think he'll stop now. But if you would like to help out for either the evet or to help gain the funds to keep my medical insurance going please help. If you can't help I still thank you for reading my campaign.
God bless you all

Update 1/24/17

Greetings everyone, and thank you for your continued support. I'm well into the copay section of my insurance policy. For instance one prescription today cost me $250.00 I have 6 medications I take on a daily basis, not including the chemo which is $450.00 until my copay is satisfied.

So I'm continuing to come before you and ask for your donations if that is possible.

Theoretically I am going to need to pay out $1950.00 every 30 days until my copay is satisfied. My budget can not afford that when I'm loosing 2/3 of my income on long term disability.

I believe that God will supply and I place it all in his hands

Thank you for all you do

Greetings everyone it's that time again for an update. This time of year is always the hardest, all of my copays for my insurance reset and I'm responsible for the first 6000.00 dollars out of pocket.

I'm happy to have insurance and if I had to go through cancer treatment with out it there is no doubt I would be struggling for sure. Needless to say this time of year is very hard on a budget no matter how much you are making. But when your on full time disability it's even harder.

So I'm coming to you all again with the hope you would be able to help me out again.

I am so grateful for each and every one of you god bless you all.

All I'm asking is if your looking to help someone out with the coming of the new year, that you would consider my and my family as those you would help. The obligations I have far outweighs my ability to pay at this point and I would be most grateful if you would consider helping us out at this time.

God Bless You

Greetings everyone, it's been a while since my last update, and since I'm having trouble sleeping I thought I would fill you in what has transpired over the past couple of months.

I am now on my I believe my 8th different form of chemo, which has just started a week ago today. The last chemo which was so promising like those previous to it fizzled out and quit working. So we move on to the next one, and praise God that there is a next one to move on to.

It's always a difficult time when changing chemo's, adjusting to a new set of side effects, wondering just how bad, or not, they will be. It's been a week so far on this new one, and so far so good. I'm not going to get excited till week 2 or 3 though, giving enough time for the chemo to reach a higher concentrated level is key, and that only happens over time. So in another week or so, and no spike in side effects, we will be golden.

The other significant thing that happened since the last update is this. My mother has been diagnosed with the exact same type of cancer as I have. I didn't know, but I've come to find out that this type of cancer is very much hereditary. The only good news about this is unlike in my case, my mothers cancer has been found very early. We are praying that this will mean she will have an easier time with it. And treatments will be 100% successful with her. So this has been a rough couple of months as you can see, since my last update.

I thank you all for your prayers and donations
God bless you
