Bob and Dawn Gwin both have Metastatic Cancer

Bob and Dawn have been married for 15 years and live in Denver Iowa, in 2015 Dawn was diagnosed with breast cancer, after chemo and surgery she beat cancer.   In April of  2020 she began having pain in her side, after running a battery of tests she was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer, involving her ribs, spine and skull and liver.  Dawn is currently on Chemo and her last scan showed everything stable. In early October of 2020 Bob began having recurrent heart burn and indigestion.  His doctor put him on a medication regimen but after a month nothing had improved only gotten worse.  After several procedures and tests on December 17th 2020 Bob was diagnosed with Terminal Stage 4 metastatic adenocarcinoma an aggressive Cancer involving his stomach, and abdomen.  Bob is the sole source of income, and the upcoming weeks and months of chemo will determine how long he has. 

Please help Dawn and Bob by donating what you can.  All money raised will be used to pay medical bill, utilities, rent and any medical supplies and equipment that may be needed as their cancers progress.

Thank you.
