Blake's Battle to BEAT cancer!

We all know, CANCER SUCKS! This is especially true when it affects our loved ones and those we hold dear.  Myself (Vince) and Oris (adopted friend/son to Blake) decided, we couldn't sit by and watch as this already troubling situation had taken its emotional toll on our friends (but truly family). 

Recently, Blake was diagnosed with brain, lung and pancreatic cancer. During his conversation with his doctor 6 months ago, he mentioned certain symptoms that he had noticed and wanted to get checked. His doctor ordered several tests in which it was discovered that he indeed did have stage 4 pancreatic cancer as well as other areas of concern. As any person would be, this came as a shock to he and Marycarroll with an extensive amount of concerns and unanswered questions for the future. 

Blake began treatment immediately per the doctors orders. Treatment included lasering his brain, lung and hip tumors, chemo, medication and more. Bills began to add up as Blake continued to fight, but funds are quickly depleting. Treatments, hospital stays, medication and more have tallied to exorbitant amounts. Blake has not been able to work since being diagnosed and his insurance is starting to run out. Marycarroll has been able to work off and on, but as you can imagine, has tried to be there for Blake as much as possible.

If you have had the opportunity to meet Blake and Marycarroll, you know that they some of the most loving, caring and selfless people you will meet. They have opened their home and door to all those in need and have never asked for anything in return. Love is something Blake and Mary Carroll share to all those who surround them. From sharing time watching the Packers and Skins (2nd favorite team), celebrating new sports (GO CAPS), porch sitting in the summers (to chat about others troubles), roaring fires and sharing stories in the winter and more. They welcomed two boys from another home, another country as their own, and helped guide them into the young men they are today. If you were to describe love as something tangible, it would reflect back to you as these two loving people.  

Now, it's our turn to show them how much we care, how much we love them, and how much we are there to support them in this time of need. 

Though they are strong together, we ask that everyone help alleviate some of their burden by donating to this fund. Every penny, no matter how small or how large is important in this fight for life. Asking for help is hard, but we hope everyone can make it a little easier to help Blake and MC continue to keep the fight going strong. Please feel free to donate and help support our friends in this time of need. We thank each and everyone who is here to help.
