Donate to Help Wendy Through Stage 4 Colon Cancer

Donation protected
In this uncertain life, many of us have been blessed to know Wendy, a true angel on Earth, who has touched countless lives with her kindness and love. I married Wendy 34 years ago.

We are asking for your support for Wendy as she battles stage IV metastatic colon cancer. She was diagnosed in late 2022 after she began having severe abdominal pain. And sadly, the tests and scans confirmed it was cancer, and had already metastasized to her liver, lungs and many lymph nodes.

In April of this year, she made the incredibly tough decision to discontinue chemotherapy treatments, as they started to cause severe medical issues that outweighed the benefits, and even landed her in the hospital. After many long discussions and lack of viable treatment options, we have been exploring more natural cancer alternatives for her instead. But unfortunately, this has compounded our financial issues even further, because natural treatments are not considered “standard of care” or covered by insurance.

So, we ask for your donation to help navigate the scary and expensive road ahead. Wendy remains her sweet and funny self, even a year into this uphill battle. After exhausting treatments, devastating ongoing pain and emotionally-draining tests, she still keeps hope in her heart and a smile on her face.

Our fundraiser goal will help us with the large financial burden that continues to grow for:
  • Hospital bills, doctors visits and co-pays
  • Travel to appointments, tests and scans
  • Costs of new alternative treatments not covered by insurance
  • Hospice care, once it is needed
Helping cover these would allow Wendy to focus on her wellbeing without added financial stress of working extra hours or concern over mounting medical bills. Your donation will help her remain “unstoppable” (her chosen word for the year) during this challenging time.

Wendy has always put others before herself, maintaining a positive and warm attitude that touches everyone around her. Her infectious smile, her down-to-earth country charm, her adoration of Keanu Reeves, and her instant love of every animal she meets are all part of what makes her uniquely "Wendy." For those who might remember her from her hometown of Fairborn, OH where she grew up, or from the many Coast Guard bases we traveled to during my military service, you know the warmth and light she brings.

Please donate now, anything is appreciated, as we can’t do this without you. If you are unable to contribute financially, please share Wendy's story with your social media networks, Church congregations, or other group that may be interested in supporting this incredible lady. Your act of kindness can help us reach a wider circle of compassionate individuals who can offer their support and encouragement.

Thank you for being part of Wendy's journey and for helping us navigate this difficult path with love and compassion. Together, we can make a difference and ensure Wendy's last days are filled with comfort, care, and the love she has shared with all of us.

Since none of us are guaranteed a tomorrow, we encourage you to hold your loved ones close, cherishing every moment together. Life is fleeting, and it's essential to show love and appreciation to those who matter most.
