In 2007 Ken was diagnosed with a slow-growing follicular Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Over the past eleven years, with close monitoring and intermittent chemotherapy, it has been kept under control. Unfortunately, roughly two years ago it has turned more aggressive requiring more aggressive treatment. Most recently, Ken received immunotherapy in Rochester at Strong Memorial Hospital. To our devastation, the immunotherapy was unsuccessful requiring Ken to endure even more aggressive chemo requiring hospitalization, and ultimately a bone marrow transplant.
Hopefully, soon, we can find a donor and get the cancer to a point where a transplant would be successful. Lisa was out of work for Ken's five-week stay at Strong and has used all her time at work. The bone marrow transplant will require her to be out a minimum of six more weeks. Ken has been out of work and both have been doing what they can to keep financially afloat. If you can help with prayer, financial support, or are willing to be a donor, the family will be forever grateful. Lastly, if there are any remaining funds after expenses are paid we will donate to the Wilmot Cancer Center.
There is no amount too small. Pebbles make mountains and raindrops make seas. From the bottom of our hearts please consider cousin Ken. Thank you
