Dexter's Going To Beat Lymphoma

Anyone who knows Dexter know what an amazing person he is with the purest heart you'll ever know. Within minutes of meeting him, you feel like you're talking to someone you've known your whole life. He is a fighter that even on his toughest days gives his all and greets everyone with a big smile and his charming southern hospitality.

In February 2017, about 3 months after finally getting married, Dexter was diagnosed with stage IV Hodgkins Lymphoma. At stage IV that means the cancer has moved to his bone marrow and also his bones, specifically his spine where he also developed a tumor. 

   As you can imagine, hospital, treatment, tests, etc bills add up fast especially with a cancer diagnose even with good insurance. It's not easy to do, but we are reaching out to our friends and family for support. Everyone has been so amazing and supportive through this journey, and we consider ourselves (even with everything going on) very forunate. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
