Caleb is fighting Ewing's Sarcoma

On October 16th, 2015 Caleb was brought to the emergency room having severe groin pain.   After several test Caleb and his wife Diane were informed that Caleb had what looked to be a cantaloupe sized mass in his abdomen. They later found out that the mass was cancer.  The couple was sent via air ambulance to Mayo in Rochester, MN where they got a confirmed diagnoses of Ewing's Sarcoma.

Ewing's sarcoma is a cancerous tumor that grows in the bones or in the tissue around bones (soft tissue)—often the legs, pelvis, ribs, arms or spine. Ewing's sarcoma is typically a rare form of children's cancer.  The fact that Caleb is 30 and has Ewings Sarcoma is almost unheard of.  Ewings is very rarely found in adults.

The treatment that Caleb has been receiving at Mayo is top-notch.  Caleb and Diane just found out recently that they will need to stay in Rochester, MN over a month longer than they had planned due to the need for radiation in addition to the surgery and chemotherapy that has already taken place.

Caleb and Diane got married August of 2015 and this diagnosis was something that they never expected to face as newlyweds.  A lot of people have wanted to help but haven't had an outlet to do so.  These funds will go towards the medical expenses that they are facing.  Thank you for your kind words, prayers and donations.
