Help Perry's Dying Wish Come True

on behalf of Rebecca Luther
 ATLANTA, GA
Perry was diagnosed with  high-grade sarcoma cancer in his left leg twenty-six months ago.  The cancer failed to respond to treatment and resulted in Perry's leg being amputated at the hip joint in May 2015.  We were confident the Emory Healthcare team could stop the aggressive cancer.  Unfortunately the cancer relapsed in September 2016 when scans revealed a small malignant nodule in my left lung..   A few weeks later, a large cancerous mass was discovered in Perry's lower abdomen.   Sadly surgery in mid-November was unsuccessful.  We were told at the time Doctors at Emory could do nothing else to save my brother;'s life, only prolong it.

Although he has battled bravely, Perry recieved some very bad news this week,  when the Oncology team at Emory University Hospital told him the cancer is spreading rapidly through his body, and advising him to sign up for hospice care.

Perry desperately wishes to die in Oregon, surrounded by his family and not alone in Georgia. It appears we may now only have a matter of weeks to make Perry's dying wish of being with his family come true. Please help us raise the funds for an air or ground ambulance to transport my brother from the nursing facility in Atlanta to a hospice in Portland.

Thank you and God bless you!

We have located two hospices facilities in the Greater Portland area who have agreed to accept Perry as a patient. Now the last hurdle to transporting him from Atlanta to Portland is hiring a qualified ambulance service to bring him here. I've found two reliable companies with excellent reputations that gave us a quote of $16,000 and $17,000 respectively.

We really need to get over the hurdle and get Perry here to Oregon. His health is deteriorating rapidly. He has lost his appetite and is in nearly constant pain. Please help us bring him here so he will die surrounded by his loving family and not alone, no amount is too small. God bless each of you!!

Perry's Oncology Team at Emory hospital told us today that the sarcoma is spreading but so far thankfully it has avoided his vital organs, although is now affecting his kidney. They advised us if he is to be moved to a hospice in Oregon to be with his family, it needs to be done within a week or two. Perry continues to be faithful and positive, and continues cherishing each day the Lord blesses him with.

Perry now has three offers from nursing homes or hospices in the Greater Portland area so please make a donation today and share this Go Fund Me page with others to make Perry's dying wish of being with his family the final few days of his life a reality.

Thanks! God bless each of you!

Hi! After spending over a week in Emory Hospital, I'm finally back at the Budd Terrace Nursing Center. I still still have no appetite and two drain tubes in my left hip, but do feel better with much less pain.

Please keep me in your prayers; that God will make a way for my dying wish to come true......to be transferred from this nursing facility in Atlanta, GA to a hospice near my younger sister and her family in Portland, Oregon.

Becky is my only living close family. I love her dearly, and I desperately wish to spend my final days and weeks with sis and my precious nieces and nephews. The thought of dying here alone with no family nearby deeply saddens me :(

My humble thanks for your prayers, kind words, and donations to help my dying wish become a reality.

God Bless You,
Perry
Becky (sis) and me in August 2015
