Don Amaker Will Beat Cancer

Please help if you can Don and Margarete as they navigate thru this incredibly financially stressful time.  Don has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Small Cell Prostate Cancer.  He is undergoing chemo and radiation at Lexington Medical which is a 30 min drive to and from their home.  Right now, they      need prayers and any financial help or meal gift cards.

This came on suddenly and unexpectedly.  Don is an incredibly hard worker and Godly man.  At the end of September, he hit a deer and totaled his         truck.  He didn’t see the deer coming, which unbeknownst to him, was a gift from God.  That accident spurred his doctor to finding a 3.5x5 cm tumor   in his head.  After having that removed on October 2nd, they got the news that it was cancerous.  Don’s first reaction was to get on his knees and         praise Jesus. 

He has just started chemo and  radiation treatment all the way in Lexington.  With his truck totaled, and to double down on the bad luck, Margarete’s car is having issues and in the shop as well.  Don is currently on Short Term Disability from his job, which is only 60% of his normal income.  Margarete is having to miss a lot of work to take him to and from appointments. He is still unable to drive from the brain surgery.  

Let’s come together and support a family who loves and gives all they have to serve others in their time of need.  Every little bit will help. 

We trust GOD will heal him completely and will have him back in no time to be his bouncy, funny, outgoing self that you are use to seeing.
We love you all and are grateful for your support.
In Christ,
Don and Margarete Amaker
