Dan Odarczenko's Memorial Fund

My name is Teri Lein and this is my uncle, Dan Odarczenko he is 55 years old. I am one of the many neices and nephews . I am reaching out to all our friends and family and even friends of friends. Many people might  know Dan personally many might of only known him through others but one thing I can tell you is my uncle loved everyone and would do anything for you if he could, he has a very big heart and loved being around family. On May 2, 2016 he missed his first day of work for a major pain in his hip I took him to the ER . Then he began seeing a specialist and being treated for bursitis. As time went on the pain got worse and nothing was working he now was having a hard time standing up little lone trying to walk. On June 20, 2016 he ended up back in the hospital this time they admitted him and started running tests. On June 22, 2016 this is the day my uncles life got turned upside down. The whole time thinking he might need a hip replacement this wasnt the case but a tumor in the hip and the most devestating news that he or any of us could recieve. They diagnosed him with a terminal cancer , the cancer is in multiple areas not just the hip and unfortunatly  the time they have givin us isnt much. So with all this going on now  his place of employment terminated his job with him losing all benefits including life insurance. And now to update, This is now a memorial fund to help pay for final expenses . Unfortunatly with a heavy heart I would like to tell everyone that on September 5, 2016 my uncle has passed away leaving a empty feeling in all our lives. This has been a very difficult time on the family and  at this time I am asking for everyone and anyones help. Money that we raise will go towards final arrangements  now that he has left us. Any denomination will be so greatly appreciated and none are to small so if you can please donate and I personally thank you sincerly from the bottom of my heart for helping us in this difficult time.
