Eddie's Fight Against Rare Cancer

$5,030 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 5 months
I created this campaign to help my lifelong best friend Paula and her husband Eddie during this very difficult time. Eddie has been diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer, Cholangiocarcinoma, also known as bile duct cancer. Eddie sought emergency medical help on 01-19-2019 in Baytown after not feeling well, becoming itchy and jaundiced. After testing, he was moved to Houston where he was diagnosed with bile duct cancer. The cancer has already spread to his lymph nodes.

As of 01-25-2019, a chemo port is being installed so he can start chemotherapy soon. Because Paula and Eddie have no medical insurance, all treatments, testing and appointments will be in Houston, putting additional stress - financially, emotionally and physically - on both Paula and Eddie.

They need our help now!

Because Eddie is obviously unable to work, no money is coming in for the family's daily necessities, groceries, driving expenses, utilities ... not to mention medical bills.

Eddie and Paula are good, deserving people who are in for the fight of their lives. Please help ease the financial  burden and overwhelming stress of how to pay for necessities, so the family can focus on caring for Eddie.

Eddie's courageous fight with cancer ended this morning. I'm honestly at a loss for words, but I do want to ask that if you have anything at all to donate as this time, please do. The family is in need of help for his services.

Rest in peace, Eddie. You were a brave, funny and good man. You will be deeply missed.

May God bless you all.
