Gerald Kuntzmann Cancer Battle

Gerald had successful colon cancer surgery a year ago. Unfortunately, because cancer is unpredictable, he has just been diagnosed with Stage 4 metastatic colon cancer that has spread to his liver. Further tests will determine if the cancer has spread to other organs. He will start “hard and fast” chemo treatments very soon, and is currently unable to work full time. Also, because of the surgery last year, and the time he’s spent with doctor appointments this time, he has zero sick leave available to help cover his time off work for treatment. 

Gerald is a beloved son, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother, cousin and loyal friend. If you need him, he’s there for family and friends alike. His customers know he’s the go-to guy for equipment and parts.

Gerald loves Alaska. He enjoys salmon fishing at Chitina, and halibut fishing and clamming in Homer. Homer, Alaska is his happy place, and he plans to retire there.

We are fundraising to help cover the medical bills and copays not covered by his insurance, as well as living expenses. If the chemo is effective at reducing the tumors, he will be sent to Seattle for further treatment and surgery. If you know Gerald, you know the kind of person he is. Please help. Your donations and prayers are very much appreciated.
