I would like everyone to take a minute out of their busy schedules to read this…As many people know and for the ones that haven’t been blessed to meet this family yet, Billy and Annette Bryant are from Deltaville VA and have been married for many years. They have two wonderful daughters and two beautiful grandchildren that are their world. They are great people and would give the shirt off their back to anyone in need.
The first week of October Billy was taken to the ER becauase he wasn't feeling well and he had a CT scan. The results showed masses in most of his major organs, then the next week he went to the surgeon to get a biopsy. When the results came back he was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma. The news was devastating for him and his family, but I do have to say they are in great spirit despite their current situation. The next appointment was with the oncologist and he was told there are treatments that could help and it has been successful in other cases like his. Billy has had a MRI to check the brain and there was no cancer found, but he had suffered a mild stroke two days prior. He has been in and out of doctor’s office and been in the hospital a few time as well. He will begin treatment soon and needs all the prayers he can get.
With all the doctor’s visits and medications to keep him comfortable, one can only imagine the medical bills are already starting to pile up. Even though they have insurance, its only covering but so much of them and are being left to covering the remaining balances. Annette is doing all she can to keep up with working a couple days here and there. All the money she is making is going to gas to get back and forth to doctors, hospitals, bills, groceries and so on. At the end of December Billy will lose his health insurance and medical expenses will not be covered.
I know the holiday are upon us and will be here before we know it but every little bit counts. So, if you can find it in your heart and can donate something even if it is prayers, they would be very grateful. I would like to thank everyone for helping this family in this time of need and God Bless!
