"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowedge Him and He will make your paths straight"
Our dad/husband/papa/brother and friend was hospitalized last week in a whirlwind of events. Through a number of tests and a major surgery to remove a tumor that was blocking his colon, we found out he has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer. Our hearts are breaking to see our "rock" in pain, but we are full of hope.
Anyone who knows my dad, knows the love he has for all people unconditionally, and anyone who loves my father, knows you are immediately welcomed into our family with open arms. I've never met a person that did not love my dad upon meeting him. He has a heart of gold, and would be there for anyone if they needed him, no questions asked. If he's not having a life changing conversation with you, then he's making your sides split from laughing so hard.
As I'm sure you all know, the cost for a long stay at the hospital can be astronomical, and with 6 months of Chemotherapy in the horizon along with multiple other appointments and testing and not being able to work, the light at the end of the financial tunnel is dim.
It humbles us to ask for your help but there is no donation too small, any amount will make a huge difference in my parents life. With the emotional and physical toll this is taking on my dad, we just don't want him to have to worry about finances also.
Lastly, please PRAY! We are all praying for a miracle that my dad will be cured of this monsterous, ugly disease. We know that through God, all things are possible!
Thank you for all your love and support through this tough time. It means the world to us.
