Helping Pat's Fight Against Cancer

To keep this simple, my Uncle Pat has fallen on hard times. Pat and his wife Mary are parents  to 4 amazing teenagers. Last week, my Uncle Pat was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. This cancer has spread to other organs, and it has put him and his family into a terrible situation. 

With his recent diagnosis, he will be going through intense Chemotherapy and as a result will be unable to work and provide for his family. 

Making this page and asking for help is very unlike Pat and our family. But we wouldn't make this page if it wasn't an absolute necessity. To put it bluntly, our family is asking for all the help we can get.

Any donation helps. We set our financial goal just as a landmark, as we don't know what unexpected financial burdens may appear. This money will also help support a family of 6 get through day to day life. Anything over the set amount goes to the further, unexpected medical costs that will inevitably arise. 

My Uncle Pat is one of the nicest, most genuine people I know. He has always supported me through all of my endeavors and has offered to help me when I needed it. All I want to do, is return the favor. 

Thank you for your generosity. And if possible, please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers. 

We will also be hosting a fundraising event for him at the Brokerage Comedy Club Sunday September 24th. For more info go to:
