Help Donny Kick Cancer's Ass!

This campaign is for 24-year-old Donny Pocyntyluk. He is my stepson. I have enjoyed seeing the wonderful man he has become. He has a beautiful family of his own with a son who turned 2 years old in May. He is a wonderful father and hard-working, family man. They are just getting their start in life, which I am sure many know is hard enough.

Donny went to the doctor's because he was having pain in his back and an odd rash on his stomach. Donny has been diagnosed with testicular cancer and it has spread to his stomach.

He is going into surgery on 08/18/2017 and is receiving chemotherapy with 3 week breaks in between. His doctor is predicting he will be unable to work for at least three months, and anyone who has been affected by cancer knows that this could go on longer, depending on his response to treatment.

I am heartbroken for his young family and want to do anything I can to help. I am starting this fund for them to try and raise money to ease their upcoming financial burden. They have so much to worry about already, and they need help.

Anything you can do would be so appreciated, even if it is only $1. If you are able to, please help. I will keep you all updated on his progress.

Thank you, Eddie and Theresa Shaver
