On June 28th 2020 My Husband, Chaney Bowthorpe, became ill with what we thought was just a bout of constipation. 5 days later it became clear that something was very wrong when the symptoms had gotten worse through the week. We later learned a few days after rushing him to the hospital that he had Colon Cancer. Everything since, has just been a roller coaster of surprises for us. With having to drive 2 1/2-3 hours to go to his doctor appointments, having 1 major procedure and 2 major surgeries, multiple overnight stays in the hospital, among tests after tests, we are struggling to keep up with everything. We have learned that it has started to spread to the Lymph Nodes and that treatment is now dire.
Chaney is an avid outdoors man, devoted father, loving husband, son, brother and friend. He is always willing and able to help anyone who asks for help, whether it be yard work, home renovations, hunting, farm work or anything else.
Due to the Pandemic and unstable local economy, We have found ourselves without work. We have no health insurance and all the money we had set aside for Medical/Vision/Dental, has now been used on some of his medical costs already...but the bill is still growing. Not only do we have substantial medical expenses, but we have all of our other bills on top of that. We know that times are hard for everyone, but if you are able to spare some pocket change to help us with expenses I promise you it will not go to waste.
