Derek Miller medical fund

Derek Miller, senior at Southwestern HS was recently diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer and due to this diagnosis, Derek will need to undergo a complete thyroid ectomy on April 2, 2018.

This all came about very unexpectedly and as we all know (even with medical insurance) medical bills can cause a huge financial burden to the family, including copays, doctor bills, travel costs, and lost wages, just to name a few.

We are asking you to please help his family with these costs that will encompass treatment.

We are in hopes to ease some of these financial stresses by creating this Go Fund Me account for Derek's family.

Your generosity and prayers are greatly appreciated.
