Colby's Medical Fund

On Wednesday June 14 of 2017 Colby was diagnosed with cancer. On Thursday June 15 Colby found out his surgery was moved from a Thursday to a Monday. His divorce was finalized on Friday June 16, 2017 and the following Monday June 19,2017 he went into surgery to remove the tumor. After surgery his tumor markers never went down, the cancer had spread so Colby is currently undergoing chemotherapy for four cycles. In between cycles Colby is undergoing shots to increase his white blood cell count. These shots and chemo are putting his body through a great deal of pain. He can’t keep up with the medical or monthly bills due to being on short-term disability. Colby needs your help! We are trying to raise the funds for him as soon as possible. He could use some good news for a change. 

Thanking you in advance- Cynthia Dowie-Elgin & Mike Elgin
