Coyle Supplemental Needs Trust

33457978_1538591162464108_r.jpegHello: My name is Joe Busto.  This is a picture of my son Coyle Busto.  I was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer with 3-6 months to live in mid July. I was told if chemotherapy goes well possibly I would make it to Christmas 2018. I am on my fourth chemo treatment since August 4th and there has been some progress but not as much as I had hoped.  The chemo mix I am taking had not been tried by my doctor or the Kaiser facility at Franklin street and its kicking my ass but I am continuing to fight.  It knocks me down but I seem to keep getting back up somehow.  Who knows how long I have? No one seems to know.  I have come to a peaceful place with my diagnosis and treatments but what bothers me is leaving my son. My son Coyle is severely Autistic and eleven years old. His mother was also recently diagnosed with M.S.  She has not worked since 2005.  I don't think it will be possible or that easy for her to raise him alone and also work. Coyle is a handful and doesn't talk much but is a lovely upbeat little wild man that loves being outdoors half naked eating a Popsicle.  It is painful to know I am leaving him in a world he is not set up to succeed in.  He needs a father and to be taken care of.  I had planned to walk with him through his life and keep him under my roof always. We don't always get what we want.  Funds raised will go in the Coyle Busto Supplemental needs trust that was established through recently updating my will.  I would also like to thank: my family and friends, the CWCB, the Colorado water community, the weather modification community, all the science geeks I run around with, and the CASFM members for their love, encouragement, and support as this gives me hope and helps me continue to FIGHT!
