The picture you see is of Zane Barnes with his wife and four kids (fourth in the womb in this pic). Zane is 33 years old and him and his wife have been married for 10 years. Their kids are Zac who is 9, Kyler who is 7, Karlee who is 5 and now Zebrina who is just weeks old! Zane works at Elmer's and is and always has been a devoted, hard working employee. If you know Zane, you also know he doesn't like to slow down. On top of working at Elmer's and taking care of his family, he typically does side jobs such as roofing and building decks, which is something he loves doing.
This August , Zane was diagnosed with a rare incurable cancer called Adenocarcinoma in the GI tract. The cancer is in his abdomen in a fluid that fills in the abdominal cavity. The cancer cells have attatched themselves to the wall of his abdomen. He has started this battle with a lot of unknowns about the cancer as well as an infection in his abdomen. There are still a lot of unknowns about this cancer even beyond it being very rare. As far as treatments, his treatments will be every two weeks. He started his first treatment at the Mayo clinic in Minnesota and will possibly continue them back home.
Here is how you can help. Not including their deductible for their insurance, they have and will be incurring a lot of expenses, not to mention taking care of four young children. Anything you donate will go towards medical, travel and any other expenses/needs that come up for the family. Zane and his family are so grateful for any support you can offer them in their time of need.
