In Memory of Roger Miller Memorial Fund

Donation protected
Our friend, Ayumi, is in dire need of some help. Ayumi and her husband Roger have two young children at home, are living in an RV, and Roger has cancer.

Roger works hard to provide for his family and was using their savings to pay for a renovation to their home so they could move out of the RV and into the house. One kid is in school virtually, and the other is hoping to start kindergarten in the fall.

In December, Roger started feel unwell. There was a lump in his throat and he knew something was wrong, so he went to his family doctor for help. It was hard to get an appointment for something other than COVID, but eventually he was seen and some test were ordered. The tests were inconclusive, so he was referred to a dentist, as it was thought an infection from a tooth may have travelled into his jaw. Teeth were extracted in an attempt to remedy the situation, but the lump in his throat remained a problem.

With limited savings and Ayumi caring for the kids full time, Roger had to keep working in order to provide for the family. He work through the pain but was quickly running out of sick leave due the numerous doctor appointments he required.

On Tuesday, February 2, 2021, after months of pain and uncertainly the results of the CT scan, PET scan, and blood tests presented a diagnosis: Malignant Lymphoma.

According to the Mayo Clinic, Malignant Lymphoma is a rare form of cancer which affects the lymphatic system of the body and can spread to other organs, but always requires advanced treatment to cure.

Roger has some health insurance, but the high cost of his treatments and the inevitable loss wages will soon overwhelm the family. I ask that you please donate what you can to help Ayumi, Roger, and their two wonderful children get through this trying time. Thank you!
