Support For Kerilenko Farrington

Have you ever met someone who knows no strangers? Well, that’s Keri! His mom Annabelle, a single mother with the biggest heart, has been a loyal sister-friend to Barbara and me for years. We’re making this Gofundme with her permission and based on her information. Keri had a rough start in life, being born with widespread Neurocutaneous Melanosis ( the dark patches all over his skin) which progressed to Melanoma ( the deadliest form of skin cancer) and Rhabdomyosacroma ( cancer of the skeletal muscles) at the tender age of 7 months. He was treated with Chemotherapy. Keri is also suffering from Epilepsy and is on seizure medicines. Keri, now 30 years old, recently started coughing, developed some aches and pains throughout his body and after further testing was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. The cancer is diffuse and covers every body system. No part of his body is spared. He endured radiation for a short 2 weeks but was discharged to home last week on hospice care. Humanly speaking there’s nothing that can be done but comfort measures. But with God all things are possible! His pain was barely manageable at home and in the early morning of 3/8/18 we had to get him transferred to a crisis hospice care facility for further palliative care and pain management. Keri is loving, makes us laugh, gives the biggest smiles and hugs to everyone he meets. He is passionate about life and the well being of people, hurts for the hurting and prays for you when asked. He spends about 2-3 hrs daily consecrating himself and prays for people by name. Annabelle would often get a tender piece of his mind when interrupting his prayer and devotional time . His mom is his hero, he loves his family. Keri has a way of slowing you down for you to level with him, especially when you are in a rush, most of the time having no sense of urgency. He loves God, people of all ages and basketball. He creates welcome distractions and we all wish we could stand and chat a little longer with this awesome young man. Annabelle has recently adopted 2 toddlers ages 1 and 3. The 3 yr old was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and will undergo stage 3 open heart surgery next month. Friends, Annabelle needs our support in all this. There is no insurance for Keri to cover the cost for his recent hospital stay, radiation treatments and current palliative care and medications. Medical bills and life expenses are sky high and continue to rise. Please consider donating. We ask for privacy during this difficult time and appreciate you more than you can imagine! We need your prayers and support. Please share this Gofundme page, thank you!

Requested by the Gofundme team:
My name is Lisette van Windt, I’ve been a sister-friend of Annabelle Farrington for numerous years and we both attend Faith Assembly Orlando. I live in Orlando, Florida.
These funds will be used to cover Kerilenko Farrington’s funeral expenses and Annabelle’s lost wages while off work to take care of her son with cancer. I’m releasing the funds into my bank account with the mother’s permission and will pay for funeral and cemetery expenses and all expenses associated with burying our beloved Keri. Annabelle’s was promised all receipts and the total money being payed out by the Gofundme team. All remaining funds and additional funds coming in will be given to Annabelle Farrington until campaign is closed.
