September 2020 Dennie was unexpectedly diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Unfortunately his cancer wasn't found until it had significantly progressed. Treatment was immediately started. Dennie has went through 2 cycles of radiation and multiple chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatments. Christmas day Dennie was admitted to the hospital for the third time. This resulted in a 13 day stay, along with a surgery. His 3rd cycle of radiation was scheduled to begin. Then he went back to hospital 2 days later, another surgery. This put further treatment on hold at the time.
Dennie's medical costs are mounting. Many supplies, medications and necessities are not completely covered by insurance, or not covered at all. Kim has missed multiple weeks of work taking care of him. Dennie has been unable to work since diagnosis. Kim has been by his side every step of the way, taking care of everything. Putting Dennie as #1 priotity in every way.
We, Rick & Amy are hoping to find some help for our friends. Amy & Kim have been as close as sisters since birth as their parents were very close friends. Rick & Dennie have been the best of friends in their almost 40 yr career at Titan Wheel. Life's journey has brought us all 4 together as couples and the best of friends.
We are supporting them in anyway we can and sharing this difficult journey with them. We are trying to help with already accumulated and on-going medical expenses and basic living expenses. Dennie & Kim would sincerely appreciate any donations, no amount is to small. Thank You & God Bless!
