Life in general is truly a blessing; however, it can also be so very mean.  Bad things happen to really great people every day but never ever in a million years did I see myself writing this very post about Ed!  Ed was diagnosed with Renal Cancer November 2016.  He had a Left Nephrectomy (remove the left kidney).  The prognosis was very good!  Unfortunately, just a few short weeks ago they learned that the Renal Cancer had metastasized to a number of locations and they have classified it as Stage 4 Renal Cancer. 

To fight this cancer Ed will be going through extensive testing, multiple surgeries, radiation treatments and that is just getting him started.  Unfortunately, Ed does NOT have health insurance and loss of income due to his inability to work due to the vigorous schedule of appointments, treatments, and surgeries.  Kelli has also been missing work to assist in the care of Ed and making sure he gets to his appointments as well.  As you can imagine all of this will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars for his continued treatment, not to mention their day to day bills of the mortgage, food etc.

Eddie has impacted many lives within our community with his generosity to help others, volunteering with various youth sports groups, providing a helping hand to friends, and neighbors whenever needed.  Ed is a very humble man and I have never heard him ask for help in return.  I am asking everyone who is able to give a little something to pay it forward to a family who truly deserves it.  There is no donation too small or too large – if you are unable to donate at this time please share, pray, and send positive thoughts for this family.

I will post updates as they become available to me.  Thank you for reading our campaign!

Hello Family & Friends-Well we've had some new developments... Eddie started having a headache/pressure in his head, & some vomiting over the weekend.

Then yesterday when I was leaving for work, he just didn't "look right"... So I called the neurosurgeon's office as soon as they opened. I was told to bring him straight to Regions ER. So we spent the entire day there, seeing doctors & having a contrast dye MRI, & he was finally admitted at 10:00 p.m. last night.

They saw some subtle changes from the MRI that he had had 2 weeks prior. They have now determined that he has had numerous small embolic strokes.

One of the lesions on the inside of his brain is bleeding, that is what's causing the pain/pressure that he's feeling in his head. Therefore, The neurosurgeon will work with neurology & hematology/oncology to determine the best plan of action to stop the bleeding & these small strokes. They will be doing an Echocardiogram & a Bilateral Ultrasound of the Carotid Arteries to try to determine where the blood clots are coming from.

As always, we will keep updating.

Update from Kelli: Long day today. We arrived @ Regions @ 7:30 this morning, & just got home. Eddie is pooped out!

His Cerebral Angiogram went well & the blood is flowing very nicely through the vessels. They did not see any blockages or partial blockages. Great News!
