Darde Family Fundraiser

Bob Darde, my brother-in-law, Michelle's husband, and Megan and Rachel's dad, was diagnosed with brain cancer on May 31, 2017.  The tumor was removed on June 2, 2017 and the 42-day chemo/radiation treatment began on Monday, July 10, 2017.  Since Bob's hospitalization on May 31, he has been unable to return to work and it is unknown when or if he will return to work.  He received his last paycheck two weeks ago.   Although Bob has applied for Social Security disability, it may take a month to find out if he qualifies to receive funding.  Michelle is working full-time around Bob's daily treatments and luckily her job provides their medical benefits.  Between the co-pays for his daily treatment, the gas required to get him to those daily treatments, and the regular monthly expenses, Michelle's check won't cover everything.
Many people have asked how they can help.  By starting this fund, I'm hoping Bob can put all his energy into beating this cancer rather than worrying about how the bills will be paid.  Thank you for all your support and prayers for Bob and our family.  It is greatly appreciated.
If you would prefer to donate directly, please message me on Facebook and I will help coordinate that process.
