Anyone who knows Aaron Fischer, will know him for always being vivacious and healthy, always active and in the gym. More than that, you will know him for being wholly devoted to God, his wife and their daughter Kailey, as well as the youth he pastors at their family’s church. He has always been a man eager to serve and help anyone that is in need, whether you are a friend or a stranger. At this time, Aaron and his family could really use our help.
Mid March, Aaron started to feel unwell, he and his family assumed he had gotten the flu bug that had been going around amongst friends. A few weeks later despite his efforts to recover and still unwell, things started to progress quickly and for the worst. After losing almost all of his strength, he went in to the hospital on March 29th and was diagnosed with severe ulceritive colitis. At this point, Aaron is unable to eat, drink or even get out of bed. He has lost a large amount of weight in such a short time and has experienced excruciating pain everyday since. He is currently in the hospital being treated and will most likely be there for a while yet. After various testing, steroids, pain meds, colonoscopy and a biopsy, he will be looking at chemo treatments in attempt to stop his immune system from attacking his body, and if that doesn’t work, he will be looking at surgery.
The whole time Aaron has been hospitalized, his wife Kristin has been unable to work as she needs to be at the hospital advocating and caring for him. This has completely flipped their lives upside down and their financial needs in order for Aaron to get the treatment he needs are vast. Aaron does not have medical insurance and even after the hospital stay, he will need to be on costly medication. As of right now, we are looking to raise $15,000, which Kristin foresees getting them through the next couple of months, with treatment and being out of work. At this point, the future of his treatment isn’t exactly clear, but whichever route is decided, it will take a huge financial toll. Above all, Aaron’s health, well being and quality of life moving forward is absolutely the number one priority. If you are unable to help financially at this time, his family and friends ask that you would please lift him up in your prayers.
Aaron is still at the hospital being treated. The doctors have stopped steroid treatments and are going to start Remicade infusions that are detrimental to his life. This treatment will cost anywhere from $2500-$5000 an infusion and he will be needing them every two weeks. The next does will be given to him on April 28th and
