Chad Oltrogge's Cancer Battle

Chad was diagnosed with ocular melanoma (eye cancer) in 2011 which has now spread to his lungs, bones, pancreas, and liver. Chad is not longer able to work because of the pain that this has caused him. Currently there is no cure for this type of cancer but our family is actively seeking treatments that will prolong his life. Upon hearing the diagnosis, Chad and his girlfriend Kristi decided to marry before he begins treatment. As a blended family, they feel that a wedding will help the spirits of everyone. Chad and Kristi are ready to fight this battle as husband and wife. With all the medical bills and travel expenses that are coming, our family is going to need help, anything thing you can give we would be grateful for. Even your prayers. Our hopes are that Chad gets accepted to a study out of state and begins to feel better and enjoy day to day activities. Thank you in advance.
