You can have dreams and plans in life but the unexpected and unplanned for can turn everything upside down. Our son and brother Weston Hornberger is a 45 year old father of two. 2017 started with the wonderful addition of a young son, now 9 months old, and a daughter, starting kindergarten. Years of hard work for Leanna and him was finally headed in the right direction. Unfortunately Weston's life changed from one of optimism to survival when he received the devastating news that he has cancer - Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, B Cell Mantle stage 4 - a mass in his right lung, and cancer in his spleen, entire lymph node system and bone marrow.
On the plus side Weston is a fighter and is determined to live. He has been self-employed for several years. While going through chemotherapy treatments, he continued to work to sustain his family despite being physically challenged to do so. He has completed 6 chemotherapy treatments and his stem cell harvest. In December he will receive his stem cell transplant. He will remain in the hospital approximately a month over the Christmas and New Year season.
According to his oncologist, Weston will be unable to physically work for up to six months or more after his stem cell transplant. Full recovery is expected to take 2 years but if everything proceeds satisfactorily he should be able to resume working within 6 months. As the sole provider, the future will be financially, emotionally, and physically challenging for him as well as his young family. Weston is not the type of person to ask for help but we know they will desperately need it, which is why we are reaching out and setting up this go fund me account on his behalf. We are hoping to raise $45,000 to assist them until he is able to work again. Please share this with your families and friends. Whatever you can donate to support him and his family will be truly appreciated.
