Help George Beat Cancer

On January 15, 2014, life changed forever for George and his family. George, a dedicated husband, father, and grandfather, was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer that has spread to other major organs. George, who is only 51, was a fit and healthy man, so the diagnosis shocked his family and friends. He went in complaining of stomach issues and left with a completely different life plan than he ever imagined. George and his wife Button quickly evaluated all of the options, deciding to undergo heavy doses of chemotherapy and to join a clinical trial. 

George is battling cancer with all of his energy and heart. However, treatment and lack of work have put a massive financial strain on George and Button. George has always been an independent, strong, self-employed man, but is unable to work due to the side effects from chemotherapy. Paying bills is the last thing that they should be worrying about, and that is why we need your help. Every donation, no matter how small, helps take the stress off of George so he can use all of his energy to fight this disease. 

Please help us support George and his family. Your donation will go toward invaluable medical care and comfort that may otherwise not be possible. The smallest donation will make the biggest difference, not only financially, but emotionally. 

Thank you for your support in this difficult time.
