This page is to offer a place for those who would like to support David Williams and his battle against cancer.  David was diagnosed in October of 2015 (despite having no symptoms) while at a routine check-up. Since then, he has received treament including chemotherapy and Radioembolization at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Zion, Illinois.  All funds will go towards David's medical costs and monthly expenses. Any donation is greatly appreciated and will help David and his wife Linda as they go through this challenging time. Thank you so much for the help and please leave a comment below!  Also be sure to look for updates on David's status via his CaringBridge website at  www.caringbridge.org/visit/davidwilliams9

The truth is I am reluctant to ask for assistance. It is my nature to slog things out on my own with the moral support of a few good friends and of course family. However, we are now living paycheck to paycheck. I did not have any income for the first half of the year and as the medical bills began to roll in we quickly burned through our savings and now each month we have had to dip into my retirement savings. I am hoping to keep these remaining retirement savings intact as much as possible for the benefit of my wife Linda in the event these treatment options are simply temporary. I remain positive that I will recover but the alternate remains a very real possibility.
The medical providers at CTCA and COBRA insurance provider BCBS of North Dakota have done an excellent job at absorbing as much of these costs as they can and we are paying close to the bare minimum each month. My North Dakota COBRA benefits expire on 8-31-16. I have secured a new insurance provider under Covered California.com (part of the Affordable Health Care Act) and will still have a monthly premium and face a new round of deductibles before the end of the year and then another new round when the new year starts.
We have trimmed way back on the meager “luxuries of modern living” in an effort to get our monthly bills down and we have.
So with that being said I reluctantly and appreciatively have agreed to the gofundme.com web page for David Williams9. I realize there are millions of folks on this planet in much worse shape than me and I hope their lives improve. GoFundMe is chocked full of folks who need help. Add one more.
