In March 2016 Kyle was to undergo just a simple laparoscopic abdominal hernia repair. Instead, something fairly uncomplicated turned into something quite the opposite. Appendix cancer often presents symptoms very common to an abdominal hernia. Kyle had a CT Scan and biopsies, which confirmed (PMP). Kyle underwent a 12-hour surgery with a specialists in Omaha, NE followed by several days in intensive care and 2-week hospital stay on. Basically, his surgeon refers to the surgery he had as:
Cytoreductive surgery and
hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC)
It was an intensive surgery that aims to remove the tumors and "may" involve removing the lining of the abdomen or organs such as the bowel, omentum (fatty tissue in the stomach) and gallbladder.
This was a major operation that was extremely daunting on Kyle physically.. His condition is chronic which means there is a chance it will reoccur.
So how can we help Kyle and his family? Kyle is currently a manager with a piping company that serves areas all around Colorado with various underground piping needs. While Kyle and his wife are living comfortably and have insurance, cancer treatment is almost impossible to battle alone and the financial burden will inevitably take its toll and add more stress to an already stressful situation.
So here's where everyone else comes in. We want Kyle and his family to focus all of their strength, positivity, energy, and love towards getting our beloved Kyle better. Instead of worrying about bills and debt, they will be able to spend time with family and friends and the important stuff in life because of everyone's generosity and help.
The goal of this is to raise as much money as possible for the family. All donations go 100% to Kyle and his family. If you can't donate, send Kyle a message, make him laugh, remind him of an old story. More than anything, positivity and laughter will have a profound effect on this process.
