Help a GUY (McWhirter) Out

*****UPDATE 06/09/2019******

Unfortunately our friend Guy has had a rough couple weeks. He has been in and out of the hospital with various complications and is really struggling. With this, he is completely unable to work and expenses are mounting. If we can gather a little more together and help relieve this added stress, it would be greatly appreciated more than you can imagine. Guy and family have been so grateful for the donations they have already received and it has meant so much to them to help cover expenses and alleviate some of the strain from not being able to work. There are not enough thank you's for all who have, and continue to support Guy.

Dear friends and family,

As many of you have heard, our beloved Guy McWhirter has recently received a devastating diagnosis of Stage 4 Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and the battle he has ahead of him is proving to be a rough one.

We know the McWhirter’s to be a hardworking and humble family, always living the principle of giving, so you can imagine how difficult it was to get them to agree to allow a GOFUNDME account be set up on their behalf.  Sadly we also know how Cancer has a way of humbling its victims, as it has done to them.

Guy has had his share of health battles, all of which he has met head on and triumphed. He has now met yet another difficult health challenge he needs us.

There just aren’t words enough to describe the kind of man Guy is. He is a beloved husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle and dear friend to many. His kind and caring nature, always putting others first, has impacted the lives of the many who have been blessed to know him.

Guy has given so much to so many and now he is in it for the greatest WIN he has ever needed. Guy is battling for his life with an adversary he is determined to defeat and there IS hope! Sadly the financial burden such a fight and diagnosis brings causes incredible stress. He is self employed and has, and will continue to, lose time at work due to physical weakness and illness. He is in need of our help as this will be a long and costly fight for Guy and his family.

His loving, selfless, humble, and patient manner has touched many lives, and we are asking for your support as he proceeds to battle this awful disease. If you are able to help alleviate some of Guy’s financial concerns, please make a donation. But most importantly, please keep Guy in your thoughts and prayers as he fights this battle.

Guy and his family appreciate your prayers and kindness more than words can express
