Ben's Fight with Cancer

Ben's Fight:

Benjamin (Ben) F. Alfonso Jr. of Myakka City Florida was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. This was very sudden and shocking news to him and his family.

What Ben means to his family, friends and co-workers:

Ben is a loving husband, father and friend. Ben has been a hard working and self sacrificing operator in construction for over 40 years working in difficult and diverse environments. Ben is dedicated to caring for his wife (Cindy), his young grand children (Kaitlyn, 7, Hailey, 5, Landon, 3), and daughters (Kayla and Meranda) that mean the world to him.


Why Ben needs your help:

As many probably know, Cancer is very unforgiving not only physically but for family and financial responsibilities as well.

As you can imagine, fighting this illness and caring for his family at the same time is quite an undertaking— But Ben is a fighter!

We as his co-workers and friends are reaching out to everyone because we know this situation is devastating and how much this financial assistance from all of us can mean to him and his family — Help us take one less burden from his plate!

We truly appreciate ANY help you can provide.

Thank You!
