Help for Wade and Denise Wheeler

27837484_15190088490_r.jpegWade Wheeler, a Marine Veteran, is one of the most selfless people you will ever meet.  We have set up this Go Fund Me page to help pay for his cancer treatments and help him keep his home while he cannot work.

In December, 2017, seven years after his first chemo treatments put his throat cancer into remission, it came back and Wade required a full laryngectomy, removing his vocal cords, in order to save his life. Wade’s wife, Denise, has been by his side every moment for the past two months as he has been in the hospital. Of course Wade hasn’t been able to work and neither has Denise as she has cared for Wade.  As Wade struggles to recover, the bills continue to pile up.

After serving his country, Wade founded the Reece Center, a non-profit riding center for the disabled in 1984. He has made it his life’s heart work to ensure the Reece Center continues so it can provide the much needed therapy for its riders of all ages. For over 30 years, Wade has ensured the Reece Center not only survived as a non-profit volunteer organization, but thrived.  Wade and Denise have often sacrificed their own financial resources to make sure horses were fed, bills paid and the center continued.  Now, we would like to give back a small part of what Wade and Denise have given so lovingly to others.
Please help us to help Wade and Denise as they have helped so many! All monies will go directly to Wade and Denise to help pay Wade’s medical bills and to pay their home bills. Wade has a long road to recovery ahead and the needs are already great!If you are able to help, please do; please share even if you cannot give.
