In January 2017 Jack started experiencing rapid weight loss with abdominal pain. Through numerous tests, CT's, MRIs it was finally discovered in April that he has stage III inoperable adenocarcinoma (pancreatic cancer). A diagnosis with a very bleak prognosis without a miracle. During the three months of finding the diagnosis, Jack had lost 40+ pounds. He started chemotherapy, which in itself has had many negative quality-of-life issues. With the cost related to Jack's pancreatic cancer such as chemotherapy, drugs related to counter reacting the side effects of chemo, and transportation to and from chemo it has become quite a financial burden. In addition, things are needed like a bed that allows Jack access, bathroom facility changes for Jack's access as he becomes weaker and less able to handle things alone.
Jack and Brenda are on a fixed income and have burned through most of their 'retirement' funds due to the costs incurred thus far. Even with insurance, the cost of treatment and medications are outrageous.
During this difficult time let's all surround them with our love, financial support, and MOST importantly prayers!!!
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
