Lyndon's Medical Fund

Please help support Lyndon & his family get through this challenging time in their lives. For several years, Lyndon has had multiple diagnosis’s, which has been affecting his physical & mental wellness for years. Due to the diagnosis’s holding jobs, previously, was extremely difficult most of the time with cognitive & pain. Gratefully, he worked up until December, part-time with Student Transit, as a bus monitor for 4K, of which he was grateful to feel needed, having a purpose, enjoying the lil’ ones 
December 12th, 2017 Lyndon had a radical Nephrectomy & lymph nodes removed. After additional testing & scans Lyndon was diagnosed with Stage IV Renal Cell Carcinoma, with Bony Metastasizes throughout his body, in addition to other nodules/lymph nodes. After 8 days of chemo, increasing pain, side effects & many discussions, he ended treatments, and chose quality life, comfort & care with Hospice for his time to be spent celebrating his life, the best he is able.
Lyndon has been married to his wife, Mary 29+ years, they met in school. They have 2 great son’s, daughter-in-law & a grandson.
Lyndon went to school here in EC, with job changes, supporting Mary, they lived in OKC, OK. & Crystal, MN. Loving the EC Area, they longed to move back in 2007, to be closer to family & friend’s.
Lyndon has enjoyed performing in bands for almost 38 years. He has been coaching for 20+ years baseball, soccer, basketball, softball with his son’s, and most recently Special Olympic’s, which is very dear to his heart.
Lyndon & his family have spent many years, volunteering, donating & fund-raising for non-profit organizations, as well as, others in need of an ear and a hand up. Being his family & him, have had high medical costs for many years, they know the importance, of being kind, caring & generous to those around them. They also, lost 2 homes, due to unforeseen water damage/mildew, which created a huge loss & took its toll.
He has been diligently trying to attain Social Security Disability, so he can have a better quality of life & support his family. This has been on-going since 2015. His case has been upped from January 2019, to May of 2018, however, the lawyer is trying to get special circumstance reading sooner, due to needs now.
