Poppy Craig needs your help and prayers!

Prayers for Poppy Craig!  Six years ago my step-father, Craig, was diagnosed with renal carcinoma. He had a very large tumor growing on his kidney.  He underwent surgery to remove the tumor, kidney and many lymph nodes that were cancerous. The doctors were not expecting him to make it through the surgery, but he did!  He survived! Craig, or Poppy Craig, as his grandkids call him, continues to survive with stage four cancer. Craig and his wife Loretta, have been receiving care for his disease at the moffitt center in Tampa, Florida. They travel from their home in central Florida to the Moffitt Center a few times a month for labs, ct scans and any other treatment he may need. All of the medicine Poppy Craig takes is research medicine. He has been through many different types of drugs, trying to find the one that will stop the growth of his cancer. some of the side effects are debilitating, he now has high blood pressure, has lost a tremendous amount of weight, and has extreme pain in his feet. Unfortunately because of these side effects, He can no longer work. What is truly amazing about our Poppy Craig is that he never, ever complains. Even on his worst day, he would tell you he is fine and that he feels great. Craig has taught so many the meaning of strength, including myself.  My life has been changed because of him, and I know many lives he has touched feel the same.  Poppy Craig just received news that he now has prostate cancer.  His future may require another surgery and numerous radiation treatments. This means many trips to the Moffitt Center, which requires gas, food, and lodging. Their concern is how are they going to pay for all that is yet to come, and all that has passed that has not been paid?  I understand that a donation may not be possible for everyone, but just saying a small prayer for Poppy Craig would mean so much to him. Thank you from his loving Family!
