Help Save Papa Lenny!

Papa Lenny is 67 years old and has been diagnosed with inoperable Pancreatic cancer. Papa Lenny is my step-dad who has been married to my mom for 17 years. Papa has been a "papa" to my girls like they are his own (see video attached: Papa with his girls Ella (aka "Wild Jessie") and Georgia (aka "Gigi"). I did not have my own grandparents involved in my life as Papa has been so very involved in theirs. He has written numerous songs about the girls (one of them in the video) and they both say they want to marry their "papa."

So now to the gloomy medical diagnosis....Papa Lenny's medical oncologist doctor advised him that he has a 20% chance of reducing the tumor's size with chemotherapy and radiation which will not make it curable, but perhaps reduce it enough to make it operable. Even if operable, the MAX lifespan is 5 years. Even with this treatment (which has a 20% chance), Papa's immune system will be extremely compromised!

Well, God has BETTER plans for Lenny! We have found Shea Medical Center and their treatments are detailed at: A brief synopsis of what their cancer treatment goals are:
Stopping the cancer growth and metastases immediately while killing the tumors directly and until [they] have achieved complete remission via imaging and testing.
Restore the body's ability to fight cancer naturally. This is accomplished by treating the cause of the cancer in each person, detox, and establish healthy immunity and cellular health throughout the body.
Preserve the Cancer Remission long term.
For more detailed information explaining the above treatments, please visit:

This is an aggressive deadly form of cancer (please do not take my word for this, but do some research) and treatment must commence immediately. We have nothing to lose! We have been given a grim prognosis for typical pancreatic cancer, but we will not accept that!

Treatment costs start at approximately $28,000 for an 8 week treatment plan. We are accepting ANY amount of donations and will also be doing some fundraising events. For example, we are hoping to sponsor a fundraising golf tournament and a garage sale involving donations.

We are confident, not only in Shea Medical but, FOREMOST in God, for whom we believe that His plan is to give Papa Lenny LIFE to be a living testimony: that not only can God perform miracles, but that traditional medical treatment may not be the ONLY option as we are all so persistently led to believe.

Please, if you have any doubts in this treatment, thoroughly do your research.

We have confidence that Lenny will live to "declare the works of God!"

Your donation to "HopeforPapaLenny" is so greatly appreciated and will help him to continue to be the blessing he has been to so very many lives!

We love you all!
