Cancer is expensive and ugly. I think the only thing more costly is dying- I've been blessed with time to plan my funeral- easing the burden off my family.
I've recently been diagnosed with metastatic cancer complicated by a very rare condition called "peritoneal carcinomatosis". We hope to find a primary next week, so chemo can start as soon as possible. Valet parking is $9 a pop. If you can donate $10 bucks, you're paying for Gary or Dave to valet... I can't walk that damn far to park in the deck anymore!
The funds are for obvious reasons... bills, family arrangements, etc, etc. Medication is costly. Time away from work is costly. The 25 trips to Walmart a day because we keep forgetting things is costly. Everything is costly!
Gary would like to take a leave of absence from work and take care of me until the end... and that is very costly. I hope you find it in your heart to help him the same way that he is helping me. Dave and Sarah don't need to worry about how things are going to get paid. It's enough that they're losing thier mother.
I hope you join me on this journey.
More than that, I hope it is a longer journey than they expect. Much much love,
