For months, Steve grappled with symptoms that drastically decreased his mobility and quality of life. In August he was diagnosed with AL Amyloidosis, a disease that occurs when your bone barrow produces abnormal antibodies that can't be broken down. It can affect the heart, kidneys, skin, nerves, and liver. Treatment began in August 2018 with four months of weekly chemotherapy, with the possibility of a stem cell or heart transplant later, depending on how his heart is doing after chemo.
If you know Steve, you know he does not do well on the sidelines, so being out of work on top of health issues hasn't been great for him. Finally having a diagnosis and treatment plan has buoyed him greatly, but there is more we can do to keep his spirits up. On top of being an incredibly generous man, Steve is not the type of person to ask for help, instead wanting to give as much as he can to his friends, family, coworkers, and even strangers. We are asking for you to help cover the cost of copays, doctor visits, medication, and day to day expenses, so that we can relieve a little more stress for this man who has touched so many lives.
Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciate. $5, $25, $50 or more, every little bit helps Steve. Or, you can share this link on your Facebook page to help spread the word.
On behalf of his three children, family, friends, and coworkers, THANK YOU!
