Kelly's Cancer Fund

In 2015 my wife and I lost our daughter Anna to a genetic degenerative neurological disease called Krabbe.  Our family was absolutely devasted, emotionally, physically and financially.  If that wasn't bad enough for us to cope with, last November my wife Kelly was diagnosed with stage 4 Colorectal cancer.  She started chemotherapy on December 11 and completed her second round yesterday.  She has been in so much pain that she had to stop working in early December so we could get all of her tests done and prepare for the multiple rounds of chemotherapy she will have to endure.  When Anna was with us, Kelly worked the night shift at Good Shepard Hospital and I am a teacher so we both held our jobs and maintained our health benefits.  Now due to her health Kelly is no longer able to work so we are limited by my income.  I would like to raise this money so it will take some stress off of us and I will be able to take care of her without the pressure of having to maintain a part time job.  I deeply appreciate anything you can do for my family.
