Lee Newcom Medical & Hospice Fund

In mid-December, we were shocked to learn Lee had terminal Stage 4 esophageal cancer, which has spread to his spine, bones, and many other organs.  His condition has worsened, and he is in desperate need of hospice care, which costs $250/day and is not covered by insurance.  Hospice will manage his pain and allow him to spend his final days confortable and with family.

After spending over a month in the hospital, and looking forward to Hospice Care, we have accumulated a lot of medical expenses.  Lee has only about a week , or two at most left on this Earth, and we would greatly appreciate anything you can give. Your donations will be used to dull his pain and assist his breathing in his final days so that he can spend time with his family.  This will mean the world to us.  We also are in need of prayers.  Please pray for Lee's pain; and for peace, comfort and understanding for his wife Jan and three children: Katie, Sara, and Matthew.
