Sam Prassas

My father, Sam Prassas, had his first battle with cancer in 2014. He has attempted to maintain a semi-normal life since receiving his colostomy. He is a strong man and works hard to provide for his family. In the fall of 2018, he was made aware that the cancer had returned. Unfortunately, it has cost him not only money for medical expenses, but also his energy. After completing the second round of chemotherapy this summer, it was determined that the only other option would be to remove the cancer surgically. His procedure was on November 9th, 2019. While he may not approve of asking for a "handout" (as he would refer to it), at this time, he is unable to work and provide for his family. He could use support from friends and family willing to help. His current physical condition only allows him to get up for short periods of time before the pain sets in. So, I am asking for help on his behalf. We love our father dearly and have watched him work endlessly just to make ends meet. He loves his family and wants to do what he can to be a provider. Unforunately, at this time his body is inhibiting him. If you would consider helping him in this time of need, our family would be so very appreciative.
