Help Bill Fight Cancer

Help Bill Battle Cancer

Bill is a devoted husband and father of two.  He began the fight of his life when he was diagnosed with stage four liver cancer in August 2013.  Doctors advised him he would only live six more months.  He continued to work while beginning radiation and chemotherapy as his beautiful wife and young children depend on him.  When the backbone of the family could not work anymore, his wife began to take on additional work outside the home to support the family and pay the medical bills.  She has taken minimal time off work and continues to work two jobs in order to help sustain the family and pay the overwhelming medical bills the family has incurred. Bill is thankful for the time he didn’t know he would have and would love to see his daughter, Angela graduate college and son, David finish high school.

When visiting his wife’s family, Bill injured his foot which required surgeries.  The cancer continued to spread making his leg brittle.  Thankfully a doctor was able to save his foot after two doctors suggested amputation was the only option.  The cancer has now metastasized to his lungs, bones, and is now attacking his brain and multiple other parts of his body.  

In January of 2018, Bill began a recently approved medicine that would hopefully stop the growth of the tumors.  At the end of March 2018, the tumors had doubled in size.  No additional treatments can be performed as the cancer spreads.  Though their hope remains strong, hospice care is now the only treatment available for his treatment.

Please help the Schopmann family relieve some of their financial burden as Bill continues to fight cancer.  Every donation, prayer and share makes a huge difference!  Thank you.

Many thanks and love,

Joyce, Angela and David Schopmann
