Brent Verburgs fight against cancer

Brent is a devoted husband and a father of 6 wonderful children. Anyone who knows Brent, knows he is strong believer in Christ and lives to serve our Lord.  A few weeks ago Brent began to experience severe abdominal pain, he went to the ER with the thought he may have appendicitis, but was given the very difficult news that he had a large mass by his pancreas. After multiple tests, lab work and scans, the Drs gave him the bad news, the mass is cancerous. He was diagnosed with diffused large b-cell lymphoma and because of the location and extent of the mass by his pancreas, it was deemed inoperable. He has since been started on the first of many chemo treatments  to try to shrink and eliminate the mass, which was growing at a very fast rate,  and he has a long, tough road ahead of him. We would love to be able to ease the financial struggles of out of pocket medical expenses and other expenses that may arise during this time for his family. Brent is the sole provider for his family financially  and will not be able to work at this time. We are reaching out to ask for help from everyone, to make things easier for them.  All prayers and donations will be so greatly appreciated! Thanks and God bless!
