Help Frank Matey conquer cancer!

Hello everyone, my name is Samantha Baker and I guess you could say I'm Frank Matey's stepdaughter. As a lot of you know, Frank was self-employed as a home inspector and thought he injured his back while working under a house and has been wasting money going to a chiropractor for months with no relief. Finally, he decided to go to the hospital because he couldn't tolerate the pain anymore. Frank had a traumatic surprise of major kidney failure which put him in the hospital for four weeks and was heartbreakingly diagnosed with advanced stage 4 prostate cancer... Unfortunately, Frank didn't have health insurance because of the prices as an independent businessman. His treatments are $12,000 per session and he's already needed 4 of them and this is just the beginning. That doesn't include the many other testing that the doctors are doing on him and the expensive hospital stay while doing so. Frank has a long road ahead of him but with family by his side, he has faith. Thankfully, he was able to get some health insurance but sadly it does not cover oncology(cancer), so his medical bills and his everyday bills are piling up and he is desperately in need of any help. Our family can only do but so much and we appreciate any help you're willing to extend. Those of you who know Frank should know he is an extremely generous person and has never asked anyone for anything. He got up and worked every day and did well for himself but he isn't able to do any of that anymore so now it's time for us to step up. As I'm sure you'll agree, if anyone is deserving of a miracle and help it would be him! ALL contributions are greatly appreciated! If you can and it's in your heart to donate, Frank & his family will be forever greatful! Donations will go towards the rising medical and drug costs now & in the future. I ask for help because I know Frank won't, he's a humble man who has put everyone else before him but it's our turn to put him first. Please keep Frank in your thoughts and prayers as he goes through this difficult time. We are committed to doing whatever we can to show our sincere gratitude and appreciation for your monetary support. Lastly, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to read Frank's story. Please share/post to help spread his story.

Also, you can adjust the option to leave the gofundme website a tip or no tip! A lot of people are not realizing this and unable to leave a donation for Frank due to the tip that's added on. It does give you the option to enter 0.00 tip or whatever you prefer. THANK YOU ALL FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS!!
