Raised by 26 people in 13 months

Hello, my name is Caitlyn and i am writing this with my brothers Tom, Mike and Pat on behalf of my dad Andy. My dad was diagnosed with rectal/ colon cancer last year. He started his treatment with 24 weeks of chemo and had six weeks of radiation. His cancer numbers went way down and everything was starting to look positive. His doctor wanted him to have a break for two and a half months and when he returned to see his doctor, his cancer number had risen back up. He is now on a second round of chemo and trying to lower those numbers once more. While his scans are still looking good, He is now having issues with the cancer on his liver. This is causing him fluid build up in his mid- section and he has to have it drained every 10 days.  While dad still tries to have his positive outlook, he is feeling pressure from the medical bills adding up including all of his living expenses. The medical bill dept to date is roughly $30,000. He wants to be able to pay off his medical bills so the collection agencies stop calling him and writing him letters all of the time!   With the money raised, he will be able to pay off his medical bill dept and be able to live comfortably in retirement .  Anything and everything will help at this time! We want to Thank you for your time in reading my Dads story and thank you before hand for any donations that are made.  Please share this with all of your friends and family!

Sincerely,
The Heafner Family

Hey Everyone, it's been awhile since I've posted an update and I was just letting you know how Dad is. He is currently moved into home hospice as the doctors say it could be days. But my dad is a fighter. He is in his own home and we are making him as comfortable as we can. We did just celebrate Christmas though and what a great Christmas it was. It's his favorite time of the year and so we all thought it would be nice to celebrate even a little early. Dad is not in any pain. We are doing a BBQ fundraiser on august 4th if anyone is interested we are trying our best to alleviate any medical bills that dad has built up.

Thank you & much love❤
