Eddie's Fight Against Cancer

For those of you who know my family, or those who do not, my brother-in-law Eddie Elari was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 prostate cancer that has also spread throughout his bones. In addition to the pain caused by cancer, he has a fractured vertebrae in his back.

We are all still in a state of shock and disbelief! How could this happen to Eddie? He has always eaten healthy and he works out daily. When he started having back pain, he believed he had "something" out of place and sought treatment for it. When the pain only grew worse, he made an appointment with his GP and after testing, given the diagnosis - Stage 4 cancer. We are fighting this with everything we have knowledge of: cancer-fighting foods, food supplements, radiation beginning tomorrow, and chemotherapy next week.

Eddie and my sister, Kollette, have three beautiful young daughters (Gianna, Tiara, and Ali) between the ages of 14-18 who have been devastated with this news.

As many of you know, cancer weighs heavily on you and your family, not only physically and emotionally, but also financially. We are trying to help take some of the financial burden off the family as Eddie is self-employed and has no insurance coverage on himself. He has been off work since June and we have no idea when he will be able to return. Kollette will be working as time permits, but she will need to be by Eddie's side as much as possible as they go through and fight this horrible disease.

As Eddie struggles physically and emotionally, we would like to help financially with his mounting medical/hospital bills, home mortgage, and other everyday expenses. We would be very grateful for your donation; any amount (large or small) will help us reach this goal and help alleviate him of the financial stress his family is facing.

If you can't donate, prayers are needed more than anything. We know God still works miracles regardless of what the doctors say. From the bottom of our hearts, we appreciate and "thank you" for any donation, and all your prayers!

Please feel free to share!
