Dan's Medical Expenses
At age 43, my son-in-law, Dan Smoot has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Metatastic Melanoma with Brain Metastases. Tumor sites are in his left armpit and under his left pectoral muscle, in his chest between the lungs, his adrenal gland, and in the bone of one vertebrae of his lower spine. Radiation treatment is scheduled November 13th, 2015 on three 9mm tumors in his brain.
If this isn't enough to deal with, the financial devastation of medical expenses is adding an overwhelming amount of stress on Dan and his wife (my daughter), Renee - as well as affecting the children ( ages 16, 2, and 7 months).
While most of us are gearing up for the holidays, this Marine is preparing himself for the fight of his life.
I am very humbly requesting financial assistance for this family to help alleviate some of the stress and hardship they are enduring. Anything you can help with will be genuinely and gratefully appreciated.
Renee has been left with the pieces to be picked up. Not only being left as a single mother of three children, but trying to figure out what to do financially. Can you imagine losing your husband after being diagnosed only three months ago, feeling lost, and struggling to keep a roof overhead? Can you imagine getting calls from collectors' regarding outstanding medical bills? Can you imagine trying to sell off furniture to be able to pay bills - just to live?
For those that have donated, we truly are grateful! It's going to take a lot more to help Renee breathe after this devastating life change. Remember that this can happen to anyone at any time. Imagine if it happened to you.......
Thank you so very much for your donations today! My heart is so full because of the kindness and generousity of you all. Everything is genuinely appreciated.....
