David had been battling with abdominal discomfort for a while. He finally decided that the pain was too unbearable so he went in to see his primary care physician. They had a diagnosis---Stage IV colon cancer. That was tough to hear. David has a wife and two young daughters at home. David will have to undergo aggressive chemotherapy and surgeries to fight this demon. During this time David has been unable to work and the family has been relying on his wife Colette's income to try and make ends meet. At Colette's latest checkup, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and will herself begin treatment soon. If that isn't enough, while traveling to her doctors appointment she struck a deer, severely damaging her vehicle.
