Aaron's Journey to Fight Cancer

Aaron was recently diagnosed with mucinous adenocarcinoma.  The cancer originated from his appendix and has spread to his spleen, intestines, and liver.  His doctors recommend urgent surgery due to the progressed state.  Surgery to remove the tumors and chemotherapy (HIPEC) have been scheduled for September 14, 2017.  He has been informed his hospital stay will be at least two weeks, followed by a bed rest recovery at home for 3 months.  Given the short notice, he has limited time off work which will impact his living expenses as well as medical expenses.  I wanted to start this campaign as soon as possible to provide him peace of mind that he has loving friends and family that will support him through this journey.  He's always made us laugh and smile, let's help put a smile on his face!  All funds will go towards living expenses, medical needs during recovery, and hospital costs.  Any amount will help.
