Help Kevin Fight Lymphoma

33264326_1537926370533172_r.jpegThis is my Dad and me. He’s been fighting Burkitt’s lymphoma since April this year. He’s only 56. He’s a loving father, son, brother, father-in-law, and grandfather, among many other endearments. He’s busted his ass ever since I can remember so we, his three kids, could grow up with what we needed. He’s the King of Adventure, the kind that teaches life skills and at the same time expands your mind. He’s always been supportive, but not enabling, letting us learn through process and growth. He loves his family and is more dedicated to his loved ones than any grown adult we know. He’s the best and most loving grandfather to his grandchildren: Dean, Jude, Viktor, Violet, Paige, and another grand baby who’s not quite here yet. 

He’s been winning the fight so far against this really rare cancer. Recently, he experienced some symptoms that required an emergency visit. The good news is that the lymphoma was undetectable in his abdomen where it was originally discovered and throughout the majority of the rest of his body. The bad news is that they found two lesions in his brain. The cancer has taken to hiding in his central nervous system, something only a very, very small number of patients with his type of cancer get, so much so that his doctors have only seen this type of cancer three times in their careers. And it’s a very difficult cancer to treat. 

The battle appears to be uphill, but there is always hope, as foolish as that may seem. We are asking with sincere love and gratitude for financial assistance to support his treatment. His medical bills are stacking and it’s adding additional unneeded stress.  If there’s a way we can ease any of this we are going to try. 

We want to prove the odds wrong. We want to fight this so he can keep adventuring with his family and future grandkids. We need your help.
