Erik's Fight with Cancer

Hey friends and family! This year has been a little different from years past for us as we were informed on Wednesday March 23rd that our loving husband, father, brother, and friend has been diagnosed with stage four Colorectal Cancer. It's been an emotional journey trying to piece all the answers together but we are believing in the unbelievable!

I've decided to create this fundraiser for my dad because he's gone above and beyond in what he does for others around him. He's always available to lend a helping hand or offer encouraging words of advice. The situation that he's in, wasn't one that he asked for, nor is it anything he deserves to go through. My dad is a stubborn fighter. He's a man of courage. A man who doesn't give up when things get rough. Ultimately, it's that attitude that will see him through this.

As treatment progresses, so will the medical bills. He's planning to do treatment at Mayo in Rochester and it's about an hour drive one way just to get the bi-weekly treatment. As we all know, the cost can build quickly and I really don't want him to have to worry about the financials of his journey. So it's with a heavy transparent heart that I ask for your gracious support. No matter if it's big or small, it's all the same to us.

Please also know that lifting my dad up in prayer is just as important as financially covering him. We serve a mighty God who does incredible things! For which we know will be lifting him through this illness. Thank you, thank you, thank YOU for your support!

Erik, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and yours. I just discovered your wonderful wife Shelly cared for both my parents at Seasons of Apple Valley in 2014. She is the most wonderful caregiver!!! What a small world. God's blessings to both of you.
