Ken is the reason you eat. Ken is the reason you enjoy personal belongings, luxuries, other items we take for granted every day. Ken is a truck driver. And as America needs Farmers, they also need Truck Drivers.
Ken is a semi driver that just wants to get back on the road. Starting this campaign and asking random strangers for donations is a last resort.
Ken lost his wife coming up on three years ago to breast cancer. She faught her battle for 4 long years. After her passing, Ken underwent open heart surgery. He came out of surgery well, did what he needed to do to recover and was back on the road....only to discover he had Pharyngeal cancer months later.
If you don't understand Pharyngeal cancer, it's a cancer that is in the throat. Radiation burns the interior of your throat, you can't eat, you can barely drink water, your lips burn, your interior of your throat comes off in chunks, and a feeding tube is put in through your stomach to feed you. Chemo then follows. 3-4 rounds of chemo. It is a curable cancer, but the process is brutal.
Aside from the pain, the side effects of the medication, missing his wife and the loss of being able to be on the road, Ken finds himself in a life he doesn't know.
When money started to come in, it has stopped again. He has to reapply for his job that he has had for 31 years.... Ken has been through his first phase of treatment with radiation and chemo, however his feeding tube still remains. Any donation is appreciated, no matter how big or small.
Ken needs time to heal, let us take care of him as he has taken care of so many of you over the years without you even knowing......
