Eugene is my son and is beginning to go through probably, the worst thing he has ever been through in his life. Eugene is married and has twin boys (almost 10).
Eugene was diagnosed with "Hodgkins Lymphoma" on June 21, 2017. He had catheter port put in on July 7,2017. He goes back on July 10th for PET scan and some other test, then starts chemo on July 12th.
Eugene lost his job back in September. They said they let him go for missing work. (Boys were sick alot and he has appointments for his feet. He was born with bilateral club feet and has cronic pain with them). He has tried so hard to find a decent paying job for his family with absolutely no avail. He has a decent education and alot of hands on experience. He has a wonderful resume, just can't find a job. He was working when this happened, but no benefits. When you have a family, that's not good.
Eugene is a proud man and never has liked asking for help under any conditions. I am asking this for him. Eugene will not be able to focus on getting better unless he knows his family is taken care of. He wanted to put off getting medical help because he said he has to work to get things paid. We had some family pull in to help for this month just so that he could relax and know that this month is taken care of.
Eugene's chemo should last till around Thanksgiving, we have been told. So I am asking for help for at least six months. I am hoping that he will be well again by then and trying once again to find work. I know that is what he will want.
Eugene is a wonderful man whose committment in life is solely to his wife and boys. It has been the hardest for him to accept the possibility of not being there for them and taking care of them.
So, in closing this I am asking for anything at all that may put his mind at rest and let his body begin to heal. I thank anyone that is willing to help. Before financial or any other help we need prayer. God has this and is in complete control. He will pave the way.
