Beating this Pancreatic Cancer Bull

Beau Sanders recently relocated to Houston to continue his professional career. He and his wife bought a lovely home and were set to establish a new life in Houston. Beau’s life journey took a drastic and unexpected turn.

Several weeks ago, during a routine gallbladder surgery, Doctors found a large tumor on his pancreas. Further investigation showed it was malignant and borderline inoperable, meaning, they would have to see if this cancerous tumor will shrink, enabling them to more safely, surgically remove it.

To beat cancer, Beau has begun a very aggressive chemotherapy regimen, which has already exacted it’s toll on him and his family. He and Vy have spent these last few weeks gathering as much information as they can by talking to their surgeon who would perform the tumor removal at the Texas Medical Center in Houston, talking to their oncologist who oversees Beau’s chemo treatment, and other medical professionals for input and possibly alternative advice.

Beau is a tough, capable man who shrinks back from very little (actually nothing that I’m aware of). He now fully recognizes that pancreatic cancer offers him a very slim margin for life. Beau is also a father to little six year old Dylan and Benjamin who is twelve. Beau is also a devoted husband to his wife Vy, which has led him to recognize that if he is to live, he needs to focus his attention on curative cancer treatment.

For those reasons, Beau has decided to suspend his work career and make every effort to getting the cancer reduced and removed. To do this, he is relocating back to Seattle to be closer to family and a greater resource of friends. This has already exacted a significant cost, but has not changed his resolve.

This page has been created to support both Beau’s relocation and recovery. Specifically, the fund will be used to cover the everyday costs of living: housing, food, and normal expenses. This fund will also help supplement current medical bills, as even with insurance, the family is facing a substantial financial burden.

Please consider giving what you can to make this very difficult experience as hopeful and supported as possible.
