Help Make Our Dad A Cancer Survivor

$5,915 of $10k goal

Raised by 62 people in 32 months
My father, the greatest man I have ever met was just diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer on Friday the 4th of April. We are unsure of his staging just yet as he needs more tests to determine this as well as alot of treatment.We were told he will need surgery and possible Chemotherapy and Radiation. This is becoming increasingly difficult financially as he has no medical insurance and the Military VA is in no apparent rush to make this happen. My father takes care of my mother that is in a wheelchair with Multiple Sclerosis taking her to all of her doctor appointments and treatments. I honestly hate having to come on here and ask such for help, but my parents and my family desperately need a little bit of help and faith. I believe that in bad times , good people are always there to lend a hand. Thank you in advance to anyone willing to help my parents and family with this long road ahead of us. God Bless

We are raising money to help cover the upcoming costs so decisions for his care can be made based on what is best for the family and not on resources. The family is going to need a tremendous amount of financial, spiritual and community support in the coming weeks.Please give generously.

Just wanted to post an update, my dad is still getting the runaround from the VA Association, we are still trying to raise funds enough for him to be able to go to a specialist outside of the association. Ultimately what we would like to accomplish is for my father to get into the University of Pennsylvania get the proper testing and proper treatment that he requires. I will update once we get any type of information from one of the many doctors that we are trying to work with. Thank you again to everybody for everything that you are doing to help us , please continue to share this with his many people as possible the outcome will be positive thank you

Thank you all so very much for helping us reach halfway towards our goal! We are so appreciative and can't possibly thank yall enough. We continue to stay strong as we hear different news each week.... Which is a lot to swallow, but are trying out hardest to stay positive for dad. We don't have any bright news as for now, but we can say that dad is soooo strong and is such a warrior. He continues to stay positive & refuses to let this cancer beat him. He says he won't live in a bubble... So that there tells us how strong and motivated and ready he is to fight for his life! Please continue to share this to everyone possible so that we can reach our goal!

He will have to have chemo treatment once a week for 3 months, be re tested, than continue a once a week for 3 months pattern until it's shrunken... Let's hope and pray it doesn't take that long.... Which we all know how strong he is, but he will become weak at some point. We will hold him up and fight with him🙏

Update: May 7th, 2014 Dad had his first chemo treatment, which went well. Unfortunately he's having a difficult time with the doctor that has be "assigned" to him should I say. She is not the Mose informative doctor which is leaving him very uncertain, scared, and confused about what lies ahead. He continues to ask many questions as any cancer patient would being that his life is in their hands... Next to Gods. She isn't giving him the reassurance of his future and is very rude with answers. She has also stated that his condition is not a stage 3, that it is at stage 4... Which means this will be a stronger battle but we KNOW that he will win this... Since she hasn't given him the most accurate information at this point, we are really sure what to believe. Please keep positive thoughts and many prayers for him....continue to share this worldwide to everyone and anyone for support. Thank you all

I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed love, prayers and funds to my dear Brother's cause. It is so appreciated from the heart from all the family and Jeff. With your love and prayers we will stay strong for Jeff. I am so concerned about the lax of the VA at this point. I have sent a message out to every entity that I can think of....The president, the Clinton's and many others. Next is begging the hospitals and cancer centers and picking with signs if I have to but, first I will call the media....I WILL. I'm saving the real blast for the VA if need be. I'm upset...sorry but I should be. I am applaud at the VA and how they treat our Vets. Please continue to help us spread the word with your friends and any other entity that you might have contacts with. Thank you again for your gracious gift. Much love to you all.
