Byers Family Support Fund

For the Benefit of Scott and Michelle Byers:
My parent's love for each other is both undconditional and inspirational. Over the past several months my Father has been by my Mother's side as she has been battling brain cancer. Her last few rounds of Chemo began to shrink the tumor, but it also made her extremely weak, which led to an ambulance ride to the emergency room on May 30, 2014. Since then she has been fighting pneumonia, blood clots in her legs, the inability to eat solid food, and has been too weak to walk. On Thursday, June 26, 2014 she was taken to the ICU and then into surgery to repair a perforation in her colon. Since then she has been highly sedated while being on a ventilator and feeding tube in order to give her the much needed rest that she needs to heal. Through all of this my Father has either been holding my mother's hand or working around the clock, trying to balance both keeping my Mother's strength high and the bills paid. That is why I have decided to set up this website to raise money for my parents. Anything to help with the financial stress of medical bills and life, leaving their hearts and souls free to love each other and as he has always says, "do the next best thing". Any funds raised will go directly to them to use as they need to get through each day. Thank you for the continued love and support.
