His cancer has wrapped around one side of his face so he's struggling with his eye and lip not cooperating with him right now. Norm can no longer keep working as the facility manager at Logos Public Charter School and is going to take some leave to focus on his health. However, he is not giving up. Norm trusts that God is in control, and says "I *AM NOT* going home to quit or die. My God has not given me a peace or permission to throw in the towel and go home yet! I think they’ll all see me around...I just won’t be fixing something or cleaning or mowing something!" He is following a cancer-fighting organic vegan/juicing diet, and will be looking into other treatment options.
The purpose of this GoFundMe is to provide those who love Norm a way to give back to a man who gives so selflessly of himself. The funds raised will go towards household expenses, since Norm was the primary breadwinner for his loving wife Jayne and himself.
In addition to his work at the school, Norm also serves as a deacon at Coram Deo. He is cheerful, humble, and genuine in his work as a "minister of mercy," and is always quick to give God the glory. Through his own storms or sunny times, Norm has been dependable and encouraging. Frankly, it's about time that he took a minute to rest and let others help him out for a change!
