Beau is amazing.
Since he was born he has struggled with Olears disease (a rare bone disease) and has had over 17 surgeries to correct and lengthen bones as he grew often requiring body casts for 6 months at a time. No wonder he became a nurse in his early 20s.
Always hopeful and full of joy he just achieved his Masters degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner 3 months ago in August.
Barely able to cross the stage, he bravely used a cane to receive his long awaited degree. This was the last time he was able to walk due to the weakened state of his bones.
Bed bound and in unspeakable pain, he still wears that winning smile that speaks of his incredible determination to heal and to live. His Mom (a widow of many years) will need to pay for a drug that might shrink and deter the cancer that has now invaded so many of his organs and bones. Due to his pain, he will now need to be transported in a van that can accommodate his wheelchair, sInce transfers to and from the car seat have become unbearably painful.
This drug has not yet been approved by the insurance and will cost $12,000.00 each month.
While we pray that a miracle will lift Beau from this horrific condition , we ask for your help and prayers so that a cure will become a true reality. If a donation is beyond your abilities, please include our Beau in your prayers for his recovery and health.
