Ed Merrithew's Battle with Cancer

PLEASE HELP ED! YOUR SHARE, PRAYER, AND/OR DOLLAR WILL HELP ED & HIS FAMILY!

ED MERRITHEW: 
 When you think of Ed Merrithew, his work-ethic, determination, kindness, infectious laugh, and his amazing family are likely some of the first things that come to mind. We are devastated to find out that Ed, yet another member of our family, has been faced with the challenge of battling cancer.  

THE BATTLE: We have tons of questions and few answers. Ed has cancer from an unknown origin- so the doctors know he has cancer, but don't know where it is, making it very difficult to treat. Ed has already faced multiple surgeries for an aneurysm, tumor/ lymphoid removal, biopsies, and testing. 

Based on the type of cancer they found, doctors think the cancer is somewhere in the area between his nose and collar bone. So, the next step is to treat the entire area with debilitating daily radiation and chemo treatments. His friends and family will be driving him to Yale for these treatments daily. We are praying that the cancer is actually in that location and that the radiation and chemo kill it all.

YOUR HELP:  The Merrithew's would never ask for your help, which is why I am asking for them. Please help Ed and our family by sharing this post, praying and/or gifting donations for Ed and his family during this painful time. The bills are already piling up for Ed, his wife Barbara, and 3 daughters Kaylee, Kelsey, and Kristie, but they are working non-stop to fight for him.  

It will be a challenge to beat this, but you can help ED and his family find answers, fight cancer, pay medical bills, keep their home, endure treatment and ultimately get the best care for Ed possible.

We know times are hard so please only give if you are able and please know that your shares and prayers are just as valuable! WE LOVE YOU ALL AND THANK YOU FOR HELPING OUR FAMILY!

UNCLE ED, WE ARE ROOTING FOR YOU AND WE KNOW YOU WILL BEAT THIS!

If anyone can help in any other way, please message me, Jaimie!

THANK YOU! XOXO
