Doug Witkowski's Memorial Fund

On November 26th, Doug Witkowski, a loving husband,father, son, brother, friend, and co-worker lost his tough battle with cancer. 

In Febuary 2016 Doug was diagnosed with Stage IV Rectal Cancer, that spread through his rectal wall, and had metastasized to spots on the lower part of his liver.  This did not stop Doug. He fought through chemo and radiation, while still showing up everyday with a smile to work.  

Early this month, doctors had found that the cancer had now spread to spots on his brain.  After more radiation and physical therapy,  Doug remained positive.  After a tough battle, Doug lost his battle with cancer. 

For those of you lucky enough to have known Doug, know what a truly genuine, amazing human he was.  His smile was contagious and he always had this twinkle in his eye whenever he talked about Christy and Sophie! His unconditional love for them was unlike anything else.  He had a heart made of gold. 

Doug's spirit and lasting impression on all of our lives will live on forever.  

Providing for his family truly gave Doug such joy. No matter how sick or weak he was, he battled it out and showed up to work everyday.  It takes a special kind of person to push through that. But Doug was more then special. He was profound. 

With the holidays right around the corner, the medical bills and now the lost of Doug, I just want to help make this Christmas a little easier. Please keep the Witkowski family in your thoughts and prayers. 

We are starting this GofundMe in means of helping his family with any funeral costs. 
Thank you for thoughts, prayers, hugs, and any donation you are able to provide.
