Hi my name is Ann. In July of this year, Rob, my husband of 21 years and father to our two kids, TJ and Jasmine, was diagnosed with an aggresive form of throat cancer (oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma).
A biopsy showed the cancer is stage IV. In the last couple of months, he's had a series of masses in his throat that have grown and then shrunk again. However, the last one burst through the skin, leaving a big hole in his neck. The below picture shows his enlarged throat area.
He has lost about 25 pounds in the last couple of months since his diagnosis, due to the advanced nature of his cancer.
Anyone who knows Rob knows that he loves to work out at the gym, and is an advocate for a healthy lifestyle. He is kind, loving, generous, and considerate. He is the type of guy who will give his fishing pole to a child at the beach and teach them how to fish. He is a volunteer at our daughter's middle school and often helps out with school field trips. He is an amazing husband, father, son and brother.
He has a long journey ahead of him on his road to recovery. He will be starting treatment very soon. Rob is not able to provide income to support his family, and I am the main income source currently. I really need your help to cover Rob's expenses related to his cancer treatments, including travel, supplements, pet scans, bloodwork, etc. The good news and blessing is that Rob is young, strong, and has all the power in him to fight this horrible disease.
Every little bit helps. Please find it in your hearts to help Rob beat cancer so that we can have him for a little bit longer, and that he can see his kids grow up and have families of their own. I think he would make the most excellent Grandpa!
Your thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated as well! Keep him in your prayers and help us spread the word. Bless you for your generosity!
