Medical Expenses for My Little Brother

My name is Jody Conaway.  My sister, Jan, and I want to raise money to help our little brother.

His name is Mike Conaway and he is 38 years old.  He was diagnosed with bladder cancer this week and has a long battle ahead of him.

Since his diagnosis, he has been laid off of work.  And with his upcoming chemotherapy, the doctor doesn't believe he will be able to work as he says it is a really rough chemo Mike will be getting.

After 3 months of chemo, Mike has to have his bladder removed and reconstructed using other bodily tissues.  This surgery will be quite extensive and expensive as well.

Me, Jan, and Mike lost our Dad in 2001 to complications from a kidney transplant of which our mom was the donor.  In November of 2012, we lost our Mom to breast cancer.  We have suffered a great deal from the loss of both of our parents.  But now we must all 3 be strong so that Mike can battle this wretched disease.  Mike is not married and does not have any children, so me and my sister are the only immediate family he has to help him.

We all appreciate prayers from anyone willing to give them.  In addition, if you feel led and are able to contribute financially, please know that the impact will be life changing for my brother.  Without the ability to pay for the chemo and surgery, his time with us will be limited.  We kind of like him and want him to hang around for a while :)

Please, if nothing else, share this link to help us spread the word as far and wide as we can.

Thank you for listening to his story and for helping my baby brother!
