Help Bill Harnisch fight this battle.

Howdy, y’all,
Most of you who are reading this know me, those of you that don’t, my name is Ronnie Thebeau. I’ve known Bill and considered him not only a very close friend but a true friend ever since I met him back in the summer of 1987 when I moved to Wisconsin.
Bill is the most humble and selfless guy I know. In the 35 years I have known him I have never heard him complain about life. Well, now he has a justified reason to be concerned about his own. Bill was recently diagnosed with throat cancer and doctors recommend he start treatment ASAP. In talking with him these last few days you can hear the concern in his voice. Bill has been a giver all his life expecting nothing in return other than knowing he was able to help a friend. Now it is time to show him that we are all thankful for his friendship and we are there for him and support him during this unjustified battle.

Bill is facing a very rough year ahead once he starts his treatments which will include chemotherapy, radiation, and potentially intensive speech therapy.

Although Bill does have health insurance he will be hit hard with out-of-pocket copays and expenses that is why I am asking for the community's help. Bill needs prayers, and any donations are appreciated. Donations will help support his upcoming
Hospital bills, daily expenses, and
support while not working.

Please help me show Bill just how many friends he truly has by supporting him and keeping him in our thoughts and prayers.

Thank you for your donation. 

Update for Bill: Bill will be moving forward with his treatment on Friday 1/20/23. A port will be placed into his heart for chemotherapy and a PEG (feeding tube) will also be placed this Friday and his first dose of chemo will then start. Bills ability to work will be limited due to physical limitations he will have because of both the port and the PEG tube, Bill is determined to work as much as he can, however the chemo and radiation will play a huge roll in how he Feels and his ability to work, cancer treatment including chemo and radiation will take a toll on his energy. Thank you for all who have donated, Bill is very, very appreciative! For those who thought about donating or may have just not gotten to it, please do! Your donation will go to help Bill with deductibles and living expenses during this long road to fighting this cancer! Thank you!
