"Do not be afraid, for I am God"

Cancer. This word brings so many emotions when it is used in the same sentence as the name of someone you love and hold dear. It isn't a stranger to me by no means, as it has taken the lives of several family members and friends and we have known it to be beat by many as well. I just heard this word in the same sentences as my father.I won't lie, my earth felt like it was falling out from underneath me and the 300 miles that separates us feels like thousands. With unforeseen circumstances, my father who is self employed is forced to wake up everyday to pay for his medical bills, living expenses and the troubles he faces while batteling stage 2 cancer. He is forced to get treatment everyday M-F and Thursday's he gets a double shot of radiation.

My father was forced to get his teeth removed prior to his diagnosis. As my sister and I made multiple trips to help ease his mind at these appointments we got the news we feared the most. My father was diagnosed with stage 2 tonsile cancer which has now effected "flappers" in his throat which control your ability to drink and swallow food. He is now being IV fed fluids and is being forced to undergo surgery to get a tube placed in his stomach so he can achieve a full stomach. It will not be determined for another 18months if he is cancer free. With appointments to job duties on his own, he has now faced transportation expenses as his vehicle broke down.

I have created this page in help seeking hope financially and spiritually for my father so he can live day to day with hopes that one day he can overcome this struggle and live to see his 4, soon to be 5 grandchildren grow up and play an active role as a grandfather in there lives.

Thank you all for your support and prayers!

Matthew 10:30-31 – And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

God bless!
