Brian's Medical Bills

March of 2012 Brian Kaup was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer that had mestasitsized to his brain and bones. He has had radiation and chemo over the years. The last 4 months he has had fluid retention problems and has been in and out of the hospital and rehab. He is very weak and in rehab again now. Their insurance has paid a lot but left them with deductible bills along with what was left of monthly chemo that insurance didn't pay.  It is starting to mount up on Jen, his wife,and the stress of how to pay them is geting to be a lot for Jen. The donations would help her get some of these paid off and easier for her to deal with.

He helped set up ,run and take down carnival rides with a couple people from church. Loved playing softball in the summer.
